JESUS GIL ESCOIN S.A. is a family Company founded in 1958 by Jesus Gil Escoin. It has been always -and it continues being- property of the founder’s family. With a long-term experience in manufacturing paper flexible packaging and machinery, produces hexagonal bottom sacks since its establishment, and SOS bags since 1994.
The company was born because the need for cement manufacturers in the Iberian Peninsula to fill their product in sacks, wich before were produced form other raw-materials like jute. The evolution since the beginning, with hand-made production, has continued until nowadays with the application of the newest technologies available in the market. The headquarter in Zaragoza was originally workshop and machinery factory, but later it became an SOS bags factory, due to the market’s and client’s needs. GIL ESCOIN has manufactured machinery for Spain and has exported to Asian, African and Middle-eastern countries, a fact that has allowed the company to have a great knowledge in machine’s configuration, maintenance and production process from a global perspective.
The company’s quality standards force the company to have a constant innovation and investment in newest market-technologies, which has placed the company as a model of Spanish and European market, exporting 20 % of its total production.
In the last years, GIL ESCOIN has widened its market to retail products, amplifying its usual terrain in industrial SOS bags and hexagonal bottom sacks to the commercial products. Because the company is the biggest SOS industrial bags producer in the Iberian Peninsula, its accumulated experience and production capacity allow it being very competitive in the commercial sector. Clients are served directly, without intermediaries, benefiting them in the product’s final price.
