Finish makes a difference: Gráficas Agulló
Luis Agulló Castelló founded Gráficas Agulló in 1965, he began his career in Cocentaina (Alicante) and carried out activities in the field of Graphic Arts. His first facilities were a 50m2 room, and since then the company has grown steadily, which has allowed them to develop and offer new products. Today the company has highly qualified staff, cuttingedge machinery and facilities covering an area of over 2000 m2. “Much of our success is due to our continuous technical improvement, our commitment to quality and attention to customer service. Furthermore, we are certified in ISO: 9001 and ISO: 14001 quality management systems, increasing the quality of our products, and this is our greatest asset”, says Kuki Agulló, CEO of Gráficas Agulló.
What does it specialise in?
When a customer makes known his needs, regardless of size, quantity or features requested, we fill the order using the highest quality products in the shortest time possible, both for small and large customers. Brochures, calendars, samples, catalogs, stickers, leaflets, magazines, displays, books, special embossed products and packaging with luxury finishes. We also consider that the presentation of a product is essential, so much so that it may determine whether the product is a success… or failure. We offer creative solutions and innovative printing either on paper, cardboard or plastic and different finishes (UV varnish, stamping, embossing…) for a high quality result.
