Arcos Hermanos S.A. is the first Spanish kitchen cutlery-making company with international scope and one of the oldest knife & cutlery manufacturers in the world.
The National Archaeological Museum in Madrid has in its collection some of the pieces “Arcos-Albazete” made by Juan de Arcos in 1745 and 1746. This officially indicates the beginning of the Arcos brand in 1745.
In the year 1875, Gregorio Arcos Aroca, turned the small hand-crafted workshop where he made knives, scissors and daggers into a factory of machinery for the industrial mass production of knives. One century later, Gregorio Arcos Villanueva started the international expansion of the company. This family business is proud of its remarkable recognition and development.
Almost three centuries of continuously researching and developing our products make us an international leader in the knife and cutlery industry.
Since our birth as a company, Arcos Hermanos has always strived for the constant improvement of quality in all its products.
Our highly specialized and well trained team of professionals constantly strives to improve our manufacturing processes and techniques in order to achieve the highest output and control with the highest quality standards. This is how Arcos achieves our goal of the highest quality standards of all our products.
Our ISO 9001:2008 certification confirms and recognizes our international standards of quality control.
Arcos also has a national Registry Health Number (39.03065/AB) and has gained the prestigious certification from the NSF (National Standard Food), an American organization which certifies our products as suitable and safe to be in contact with food.
Only the most exquisite care and attention to detail goes into each product manufactured by Arcos Hermanos. Our company was recently awarded the Castilla La Mancha Prize for design in 2007, and we were officially nominated for the National Prize in Design, by the Centre for Design in Castilla La Mancha, the highest prize awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Industry and Commerce and the Foundation Barcelona Centre Disseny. All this attests to our strong commitment to the design of our products.
In Arcos Hermanos we have the commitment of innovating as a strategic factor for a major competitiveness of our company and a constant improvement of our products. With our effort we achieve new development ways that we always offer to our customers. The new exclusive steel NITRUM®, which improves the performance of our knives, as well as the Stainless Steel rivets, being ARCOS pioneer in using this system, and our Titanium Series, by means of which we incorporate this material into our wide range of products, certify our firm purpose.
For us, our clients are our “raison d’etre” and we are proud of our relationship and commitment to them.
We view logistics as an important point in the value chain. By integrating logistics into the manufacturing processes we manage to minimize our preparation and distribution time while still focusing on quality. For that reason we work with leading delivery companies in order to ensure our products arrive anywhere around the world on-time and in perfect condition.
At Arcos Hermanos we are committed to the preservation of a healthy environment; therefore we follow strictest environmental procedures during our manufacturing processes. Among others, we send waste materials of plastics and steel to be recycled, we use clean manufacturing systems and technology as well as paper and cardboard compactors, and we have also invested in the latest solar technologies. Minimizing waste, using clean energies, and protecting the environment is important to us as an environmentally responsible company.
