Pillars:
Dimension – Precision – Multiprocess

We are specialists in lathing and milling technology and have focused on the development of large and complex machines to machine parts with a higher added value.
This policy has led us to develop the multiprocess range, capable of performing different machining processes with a single machine.

A small LARGE STEP

Spain is the third producer and exporter of machine tools in the European Union and the ninth in the world.

Goratu was created and has always been associated with Elgoibar, a town in the north of Spain, the cradle of Spanish machine tools and the base of the Machine Tools Institute and Museum.

We now export > 90% of our production.

This focus on exporting our solutions has led us to form a large international network to make sure we work hand in hand with the customer. We therefore have subsidiaries in Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Russia, India and China, as well as a large commercial network.

We work hand in hand
with our customers

We are aware that our customers are not looking to buy new machines, but rather are searching for solutions. We therefore adapt our machines’ design to the specific needs of each customer.

With the machine configured, our customer service informs the customer about the manufacturing process and then the final verifications and applications service certifies the optimal operation of the machine with real machining.

As regards after-sales, the qualified technicians of the Technical Assistance Service install the machine and assure its correct operation in the customer’s company throughout its life cycle.
