Who we are

Experts in solutions for all types of networks.

Companies that add value

Velatia is a family, industrial and technological group composed of companies that offer advanced technological solutions in line with the development of the smart city.

We are in the electric networks, helping with the deployment of smart grids. We accompany our customers in their digital transformation process. And we also contribute in sectors such as aeronautics, energy services, electromechanical engineering or concrete prefabricated houses.

Our projects combine global experience and in-depth knowledge of the markets in which we operate. This allows us to be able to tackle any project, wherever it is, swiftly and efficiency.

” As a family group we see and do things in a certain way. As president of Velatia I am proud to highlight this condition as an essential part of the heart of our group.

In the world where technology and innovation are our main guarantees, I also consider bringing qualities intrinsic to a family business such as long-term vision, flexibility or strong attachment and relationships to people and our environment to be an added value “.

I also consider bringing qualities intrinsic to a family business such as long-term vision to be an added value.

” These values, on which my father founded this industrial project in 1967, are what have guided us along the way. From this extraordinary entrepreneur I have learned a way of doing things that has lasted to this day. Continuing this legacy was a great challenge for my family and I, which is why we are particularly satisfied to have achieved it.

More than 50 years later, we are an international group present in nineteen countries and composed of more than 3,200 people who share the same mission, vision and values.

We look to the future with the confidence of those who know that they have the determination, the opportunities, and the wind behind them “.

JAVIER ORMAZABAL

President of Velatia

Velatia has grown thanks to the enthusiasm, commitment and quality of the people who are part of a multigenerational and multidisciplinary team, which has guided us along a demanding path backed by innovation. These people have correctly interpreted our customers’ needs, providing solutions and developing new abilities; also giving us an unbeatable starting position based on our brand’s good reputation. In short, we have helped our customers grow and as a result we have grown with them.

However, even though we have more abilities than ever; it is not enough. We are in a period of exponential transformation, in which digitalization is rapidly reconfiguring the value chains of the sectors and environments in which Velatia is present. Maintaining our customers’ trust requires us to respond to new and complex challenges that put our innovation model to the test. In addition to the development of solutions based on products, systems and services, we must now support our customers in business models and renewed value propositions ”.

At Velatia we also have innovation in our DNA, not just technology. That is the maxim that has guided our work since 1967.

We are a group of companies built on five mainstays: family, industrial, technological, global and benchmark; with common values and culture. More than 3,200 people from more than 20 countries, offices in 19 countries, 15 manufacturing centres, a technological research centre… are some of the figures that describe Velatia, but above all, we are a group that is proud of its past and is advancing towards the future ”.

“ Society demands a decarbonized economy and that is leading us to witness a true energy revolution from generation to consumption. In this new reality, Velatia, and Ormazabal in particular, are playing an active part in building the future of the electrical system.

This revolution poses major challenges, including: The integration of renewable energies, the irruption of the electric vehicle or the empowerment of the consumer who wants to be an active element of the system; among others. To answer them we have specific solutions to equip the electricity distribution network with the most modern technology developed on the foundations of our more than 50 years of experience ”.

JORGE GONZÁLEZ

CEO of Ormazabal

“ The digital transformation is raising great challenges for our organizations where hyperconnectivity and technology are quickly breaking through to the world we know, illuminating a new world yet to be defined.

The innovative technologies developed by Ikusi under the protection of Velatia, thanks to our extensive knowledge of over forty-five years of activity, allow us to offer solutions to transform cities ”.

We make people's lives more comfortable, sustainable and safer thanks to the intelligent management of infrastructures and a lesser impact on the environment.

“ Which is very important if we take into account that 50% of the world’s population lives in cities and that the number is increasing exponentially. Thus, we make people’s lives more comfortable, sustainable and safer thanks to the intelligent management of infrastructures and a lesser impact on the environment.

These challenges are undoubtedly very great and we tackle them with enthusiasm to continue contributing our knowledge and experience in making a better future for all possible ”.
