Ofita Anniversary, historical review
Ofita was born in Vitoria in 1969 specialized in the manufacture of office furniture. Its history can be divided into several eras. The first one corresponds to the creation of the company and runs throughout the 70s. During the 80s it focused its resources and endeavours on the design (starts working with renowned external designers) and on quality. In 1980 the Quality Department is created with its own laboratories and already in the 90s Ofita opens branches in Barcelona, Bilbao, Zaragoza, Seville, Malaga and A Coruña and starts its internationalization process.
After 2000 it jumps into new markets such as collective/public spaces and libraries as well as proposals for the health and university field and strengthens the company’s bet on design and innovation, attributes of the brand nowadays. Today the company is focused on the development of new proposals for the new work culture, on its people and on the internationalization of the company. Today it counts with offices in Spain, Mexico and France and a network of distributors and showrooms worldwide.
