In 1916聽Ernesto Vent贸s Casadevall聽(1893-1933) began to distill Spanish essential oils. The following years saw the consolidation of 聽his company which subsequently expanded to include the production of a number of derivates and the representation in Spain of several important foreign companies.
In January 1939, after the interruption of ccommercial activity during the Spanish Civil War, his son聽Ernesto Vent贸s Ravetllat聽(1921-2012)聽took over the management of the company thus ensuring the continuity of the family business.
In the ensuing years until 1986, the firm developed and expanded further to represent leading international companies in the fragrance and flavours sector.
A presence of over sixty years in the perfume and food industries, supplying and supporting Spanish enterprise, has earned prestige and friendship for聽Mr. Vent贸s.
Since 1986 the company has specialized exclusively in the distribution of 聽raw materials for the flavour and fragrance industry under the direction of聽Mr. Jordi Calonge.
In 1990,聽Ernesto Vent贸s S.A.聽opened a new factory in Cornell谩 de Llobregat and began a new phase of 聽growth which helped the company to gain an outstanding position in the sector. Expansion of the business into the international market made a new investment necessary: in 1997 premises were acquired in Sant Just Desvern. which were refurbished and enlarged while normal business activity continued.
In 2001 the company completed the move to Sant Just Desvern where the modern and practical installations enabled聽Vent贸s聽to centralize and consolidate operational capacity.
In 2002 in response to the growth of the sector in Latin American markets, Vent贸s opened a聽branch in Sao Paolo (Brazil). Stocks of merchandise are also held in other countries:聽Argentina, Colombia, France and Mexico, to better meet customer demand in these areas. In 2006 we started our stock expansion to聽China.聽With stocks available locally, Vent贸s can offer very prompt delivery, thus contributing to the high degree of customer satisfaction which is always one of our main objectives.
Ernesto Vent贸s S.A.聽under its continued expansion on a global level, has opened new offices in聽China聽(2011) and聽Mexico聽(2012) with a view to offering an improved service to the local markets
