About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

ICEL was born from a small family workshop created in the

forties by three brothers in which steel was worked and from

which agricultural and kitchen cutlery items were turned out.

This workshop was located in Ribafria, a small village near

Benedita. In the beginning, the product range consisted of pen

knives and a few totally handmade knives. The grade of steel

was carbon steel that was forged and hardened with rudimental equipment, the energy used

being produced from coal. The handles were made of animal bones and horns. As production

rose, distribution was no longer local and became regional and the products were then available

in shops and markets in different points of the country, mostly transported by rail.

By 1945 the small workshop had 25 employees and the decision was taken to establish a

company called Indústria de Cutelarias da Estremadura, Lda. from which the first brand name

ICEL would be the outcome.

The business counted on its heritage and tradition to maintain the commitment it had taken on –

to offer quality products and services to both National and International markets.

Since the early days, ICEL has invested in strategic and sustainable growth. In 1973, ICEL began

exporting to demanding markets like the U.S.A., Canada, Australia, Sweden, Denmark.

Nowadays, ICEL is represented in over 50 countries worldwide.

This success is due to important factors like the capacity to evaluate and respond efficiently to

different market requirements, by developing a culture of innovation in products and materials,

and great flexibility in production, all consequences of the modernization and introduction of high

technology in the process.

ICEL offers a wide range of knives, all produced in Portugal, with state of the art technology, and

the most modern processes that exist for cutlery, some of them unique, because they were

developed inside the company, by our specialized workers.

Nowadays the company has a staff of 170, exports more than 80% of what is produced and it is a

national leader in the domestic and professional cutlery sector.
