Bellota was founded by Patricio Echeverría, an entrepreneur who was well ahead of his time. From a very small age, he became interested in steel manufacturing and the design of tools. He thought that the old ones were uncomfortable and failed to supply the required quality.
He analysed the markets, travelled in the quest of improvements, and opened factories that applied new technology and manufacturing processes. Thanks to his perseverance and hard work, he managed to adapt them to the changing contexts. This attitude explains why Bellota is one of the most important brands in tool manufacturing.
The brand has grown continuously since its founding. From steel manufacturing to the production of industrial components for automobiles to an unstoppable internationalisation… Plus, in 2008 we turned the design of our products up a notch to include our corporate identity.
Our brand is a global standard in the tool industry. And we’re respected around the world thanks to you. You inspire us and have helped place our tools among the best available on the market. That’s why we’re changing along with you: it’s your hard work that inspires us to evolve.
Patricio chose our brand’s name. Bellota is an homage to the forests of Gipuzkoa that abound with oak trees. These forests are famous for the timber and acorns (‘bellotas’ in Spanish) that they produce. Quality, strength and durability are signature features of oak trees as well as our tools.
