Texapel:  Provider of solutions and producer of high performance chemicals


In 1942 Prudencio Arguelles Montero a chemical engineer and father of the current CEO began developing lubricants for the metal and wool spinning sector.
By the early 1960’s he had established a partnership with a German chemical company and began developing and producing chemicals targeted at the primary and secondary spinning of synthetic fibres, as well as products for the dying and finishing of textiles. This collaboration flourished, and by the mid 1970’s the first synthetic products and solutions designed for the Spanish leather and tanning sector were being produced. (Degreasing and retanning agents, surfactants, fat liquors etc.)

In 1994 TEXAPEL was born. The challenge; to export our products and expertise gained over the previous fifty years, to the rest of the world.

Today we export to some twenty five different countries worldwide and our expansion into new markets continues. We are constantly looking to make new connections and partnerships ensuring that TEXAPEL remains a  global leader in its field.
