The history of Ascaso
Ascaso was born in a small village in the Huesca mountains. He was always a man with an exceptional entrepreneurial spirit and moving to the big city was his only opportunity to better himself. He left his village and moved to Barcelona with 3,000 pesetas in his pocket and a mind full of ideas. In the 1950s, espresso became popular in Spain and Europe. In Barcelona, in particular, its popularity saw the growth of a thriving coffee-based industry.
In 1950, J. Ascaso started working for a company supplying chrome-plated espresso machine parts. From 1952 to 1962, the founder himself worked on the Gaggia production line, making parts for the world-renowned coffee machine company. As other coffee machine manufacturers entered the market, the number of installed espresso machines had never been greater, and there was a growing requirement for maintenance and repair services. J. Ascaso decided to manufacture components for all the coffee machines on the market at that time.
In 1962, J. Ascaso started his own business, producing and distributing spare parts for espresso coffee machines. Currently, Ascaso sells its products in over 95 countries with growth continuing, creating new business divisions, such as the manufacture of espresso machines.
Ascaso, the son of the founder, is the new representative for the diversification of Ascaso Factory throughout the recent years of operations. Ascaso has now settled on the manufacture of espresso machines to bring together technical knowledge and espresso culture ever since JL. Ascaso settled into the ruling of the Ascaso business.
