Exports: Aratubo’s hallmark
Aratubo is a company with solid export experience. Currently, 90% of our production is destined for export, to Europe, North Africa, and Mexico. This means that we are present in more over 25 countries, placing us at the forefront of Álava-based companies in terms of internationalisation.
Our goal is to continue our commitment to exports, guaranteeing the best customer service, and to continue to position ourselves as a benchmark both in Álava and in Europe in the manufacture of precision welded steel tubes.
