OUR OLD LOGO
The first (and old) logo of Industrias Técnicas de Galicia, S.A. – Integasa – tried to represent in a simple and basic way the function of its main products, the heat exchangers, with a graphic style typical of the time.
This is how it all began at Industrias Técnicas de Galicia, S.A. – Integasa – with the construction of the first plant in 1973, right where it is now more than 50 years later, today expanded and updated.
The first and old workshop of Industrias Técnicas de Galicia, S.A. – Integasa – in the mid-70s, today, in 2023, around 50 years later, it seems something very far away, nothing to do with what it is now.
The technology and machinery that was originally used in Industrias Técnicas de Galicia – Integasa – today arouses our curiosity and is somewhat striking, compared to today.
The old and first warehouse of Industrias Técnicas de Galicia, S.A. – Integasa – seen from the air at the beginning of the 80s (of the last century), where you can also appreciate the origin of the industrial estate where the company is still located 50 years later.
Javier Sobrini was the founder of Industrias Técnicas de Galicia, S.A. in 1974 and its director for more than 30 years. Here we can see him together with the former mayor of Vigo, greeting other authorities during a fair in which Integasa participated.
In its beginnings, Industrias Técnicas de Galicia – Integasa – was highly oriented to the maritime or naval sector, over time, in the company, they began to carry out projects for new, more strategic sectors, such as nuclear. In the photo you can see some of the first equipment for this sector that today is an important part of the development of the company.
The technical office for the design of projects has changed a lot. This was the one of Industrias Técnicas de Galicia – Integasa – when the technical drawing table, the technigraph, the square, the bevel were still used… So, ours was not yet hyper-computerized and hyper-connected as it is now.
It can be said that Industrias Técnicas de Galicia – Integasa – has always been very well treated by the press. His projects and achievements have been at different times prominent in the media. On this occasion, reference was made to new plans for the EEC, then the “European Union”, in 1989.

Steam condenser manufactured in the 90s (last century 😉) by Industrias Técnicas de Galicia. A challenge in the thermal and mechanical design of the time, a hallmark of INTEGASA projects since its inception in 1974.
One of the leading products in the 90s were aero-refrigerants. These allow the condensation and/or cooling of the process gas or liquid through heat exchange with air driven by fans. A thermal design challenge, fan selection…
