||The Garate Uranga Family have been in
the paper making business since 1861, the year in which Juan Cruz
Uranga Mu˝agorri took over the Uranga paper mill in the paper making
region of Tolosa in Guip˙zcoa, Spain.
Juan Garate Uranga started working in the industry in 1954 and from
1964 onwards has concentrated on the production of high volume paper
sacks. He has specialised in the packaging of cement and construction
materials and gained experience in the different packaging methods
in this sector. The products are also aimed at other sectors such
as animal feed (farm and domestic animals), flour, fertiliser and
chemical industries etc.
In 1995 the family established Garate e Hijos S.L.
