Dürr Systems Spain S.A. celebrates fifty years of excellence and innovation

For 50 years, Dürr Systems Spain S.A. has excelled in customer service and innovation. Founded in 1974, the company began by designing and installing a pretreatment and electrocoating line for the Ford Fiesta model at the Ford plant in Valencia. Today, the Spanish subsidiary of the German Dürr Group employs 120 specialists who plan and construct paint shops for customers in the automotive, aerospace, and railroad industries across Spain and Portugal.

Based in San Sebastián, Dürr Systems Spain S.A. started out as VIZDURR-Vizcaino, Stein, Dürr. The reason for this is that Spain only joined the European Economic Community in 1986. Until then, foreign companies had to look for local partners for their business activities.

After identifying Ramon Vizcaino’s expertise, the companies decided to combine their expertise. In 1991, Dürr took over the shares of VIZDÜRR and renamed it Dürr Systems Spain S.A. Between 1991 and 2001, the internationally active Dürr Group acquired German company Behr and its national companies, including Behr’s headquarters in Barcelona. With this strategic move, Dürr Systems Spain S.A. combined its pretreatment service and galvanization systems with Behr’s European paint shops for the first time. The company’s professional project management and comprehensive range of services have fostered growth and attracted new customers.

Dürr Systems Spain S.A. has emerged as a leader in innovative technology and engineering, spearheading numerous plant expansions, modernizations, and turnkey projects. All major Spanish automotive OEMs depend on Dürr technologies for their paint shops, solidifying the Spanish subsidiary’s prominent position in both domestic and export markets. Furthermore, the company has broadened its services to include the aerospace sector, providing greenfield and brownfield paint shops, and establishing itself as a global aerospace competence center within the Dürr Group.

Today, Dürr Systems Spain S.A. supports the automotive industry’s shift to electric vehicles and sustainability initiatives from its Basque headquarters, along with its sites in Barcelona, Madrid, and Valladolid. In response to the evolving demands of electric vehicles and EU sustainability regulations, the company is committed to developing efficient and innovative solutions, including electrified processes, overspray-free technologies, and carbon-neutral booths, aligning with the transition towards a greener future.
