Flores Valles is a leader in industrial kitchens and furniture technical laboratory, Spanish family capital markets and which It has its roots in the beginning of the 19th century.

Since 1830

The beginning

In 1830, Mr. Manuel Valles began in Madrid as a craftsman in the world of cooking and stove fitting. His legacy continued over six generations, focussing on state-of-the-art quality and best customer service.

                         

From a workshop to an industrial group

The transition from a simple workshop to a modern organized industry was the beginning of the industrial Flores Valles group.

Mr. Enrique Flores Valles, grandfather of the current President, gave the first impetus to what is Flores Valles today. His son, Mr. José Luis Flores López, known as Don Luis, completed his university studies in engineering and started his career working in several companies before joining Flores Valles and leading the family business.

During this time, Don Luis travelled to the United States to visit factories of all types in the North and East parts of the country. This journey eventually shaped the future of the family business. Don Luis noticed that laboratories on the other side of the Atlantic were made of steel, and not wood as it was the custom in Spain. Realizing the importance of this major improvement and the opportunities it represents in Spain, he decided in 1959 to apply his learning in the construction of industrial kitchens. In addition, he introduced a second product line to the company: steel laboratory furniture. Don Luis was a visionary entrepreneur who continued educating himself in every trip abroad, identifying and bringing back home the best practises in business organization and manufacturing progresses.

 

In 1959, and as part of business expansion, Don Luis founded Kelox with a selected group of entrepreneurs, a company specialized in designing and manufacturing kitchens for high speed trains

 

Throughout the twentieth century, Flores Valles continued to evolve in innovation, quality and customer service, to become a reference in the Spanish market, with some presence abroad, exporting to international markets.

 

Present in 35 countries

Internationalization

At the end of the 20th century, the company started a new era by launching its internationalization process. Mr. Jose Luis Flores Anguita, current President & Chairman of the Board, has been the main driving force behind this strategy. We started exporting laboratory furniture and competing in international markets with the highest level of quality. As a result of this effort, Flores Valles established companies with strong local presence in the Middle East, Latin America and Europe, whereby its products are now widely recognized.

Similarly, this expansion continued with the creation of two new companies: Flovigas, in 2002, specializing in the development, design and manufacture of fume hoods; and Abaco, in 2006, focusing on after sales service.

While retaining its values and tradition, Flores Valles is today a company that has a modern and innovative structure with international reach.  We strive every day to earn the trust of the industry, with high quality products that anticipate and set market trends.

Throughout almost 200 years of history, Flores Valles has developed its activity in two sectors.

  • Technical Furniture for Laboratory
  • Industrial Kitchens

In both sectors, our work methodology is quite similar, beginning with conducting a detailed study of the client’s needs and reflecting them in the project to optimize the outcome. It is what we call Lab Planning or Kitchen Planning.

In this initial phase, we do the following:

  • Advise on materials and most suitable technologies for each job.
  • Combine the needs of the user with the architectural constraints of the project.
  • Study and propose more appropriate workflows for each job.
  • Conduct engineering studies, extractions, drives, systems and paths, refrigerators, lines and connections, etc…
  • Build waste treatment plan.

We have the best specialists and the latest technologies in BIM and REVIT. We also have important collaborations with eminent researchers and acclaimed Chefs to help us in this work.

Once we take care of the planning of the kitchen or the furnishing of the laboratory, we address the engineering requirements to perform the work in the most efficient manner. This includes:

  • Realization of plans of:
    • Implementation of the equipment.
    • Electrical installations.
    • Extraction and delivery ducts.
    • Plumbing and gas.
  • Supervision/Control of facilities.

After executing these previous works, we carry out the manufacture and assembly of laboratory furniture  or industrial equipment in the case of kitchen.

We then handle the after sales service and maintenance of the project.
