On November 17, 1982 Miebach Consulting opened its office in Barcelona. This was the first office in Spain and also the first outside Germany for this supply chain engineering and consulting company, which was founded by Dr. Joachim Miebach in Frankfurt nine years earlier.
Since then, Miebach España ─which currently also has a second office in Madrid─ has worked for numerous companies from all industrial sectors, developing national and international projects of different types and continuously adapting to technological and market changes.
The establishment of Miebach in Spain was the catalyst for the group towards expansion into Latin America: the opening in Barcelona was followed by Buenos Aires (1994), Santiago de Chile (1996), São Paulo (1996), Mexico City (2000), Madrid (2000), Guatemala City, (2002), Bogota (2007) and Lima (2010). Miebach Spain has also played an important role in the group's European strategy, which has always been a priority for the company.
During the first decades of Miebach's operations in Spain, the company's services were very focused on engineering projects and warehouse design, evolving to be grouped around five core competencies: engineering and implementation, supply chain transformation, operational excellence, digital supply chain and sustainable supply chain and logistics.
"I have been working in this company for just over 30 years, and while technology has changed a lot in this time, our approach to designing and implementing solutions, our relationship with customers, and the internal relationship with our people and our group have not undergone major changes,” Antonio Rodriguez, Managing Director of Miebach Spain, remarked. He continued, “This is part of the Miebach culture, understood and appreciated by those who have worked with us. For the future, we hope to continue to have the confidence of the market and, especially, of the people who are part of it.”
