3 INTRODUCTION The Company KORTA currently a consolidated business project, it holds first place in the Spain market for machine tool components and is an important supplier at international level. KORTA has a great deal of experience in the design, production and marketing of ballscrews. Our constant effort to achieve the highest standards of quality means that we offer to the market a product of proven reputation at international level. KORTA formed by a human team of skilled qualified staff offer to the market a service that provides customers with fast solutions adapted to their requirements. Evolution In 1985 the original family company formula changed with the birth of KORTA with a workforce of 25 people. Having come to a distribution agreement in France with TECNIMATIC, in 1987 U-HAN became the distributor of KORTA ballscrews in Korea. Although our export channels were getting off to a good start, we were nevertheless aware of the difficulties involved in such a task, hence the birth in 1990 of AMT, an association for the specific promotion of exports of which Joxe Mari Korta was appointed first chairman. By 1992, the ballscrew business had grown substantially and the company had 47 workers on its payroll. But one of its challenges had yet to be met: to sell our products in Germany. A closed and complicated market, previous attempts to get in had never yielded the desired results. This led to the birth of TECO Gmbh. Strategy KORTA bases its business strategy on the production and marketing of ballscrews. Korta s growth and development is based in the following strategies: - Our aim of offering the market quality products. DIN-ISO 9000 quality assurance.
4 - Internationalization. 70% of our production is taken up with exports, which travel to countries on the five continents. Vast international experience, together with the ability to grow and progress, permit us to adopt a positive outlook when meeting the challenges of the new millennium with its increasingly global economic environment. Location We have 30 years of experience in the ballscrew market. Personal effort means that our premisses have gained in size and quality. KORTA, S.A.
