More than 80 years of history 

In 1942 a group of Catalan enterprising families decided to create a company that years later would convert into Cromogenia Units and that on this stage was called Cromogenia and Chemical Tanning. The name Cromogenia came from its main action: the fabrication of chrome salts and its derivates. Those pioneer families were: Cabestany, Guixà, Guilera, Sant i Ayuso. Today it’s the third generation of these first dreamers that continues provoking the growth of Cromogenia Units. This will be an honor to all the people that during these 80 years have been working to convert Cromogenia Units into what it is today: a familial company that has internationalized without losing its proximity and adaptability to its clients. But as well it is a kind of inspiration for future generations that for sure continue provoking the growth of this company. If you want to know something more about these 80 years of Cromogenia, you can read our book.

Cromogenia Units SA develops and fabricates a great quantity of chemical specialities that are destined to a wide variety of industries since 1942. During these more than 80 years there are already three generations out of the first foundational families that have been at the top of a company that offers a familial treatment and international perspectives.
