Who we are?
CELO is a brand dedicated to the design and manufacture of high-precision fixing and fastening solutions for the fields of industry and construction.
We have an international presence on three continents: Europe, Asia and America, while staying true to our roots as a family business, guided wherever we go by the values that have always underpinned everything we do:
Your time. Our value
We want to make our customers' work easier by offering know-how, innovation and products with assured quality. This means we can help to cut down installation time, provide quick answers to their questions and give ongoing support and advice whenever they need it.
We know that innovation does not come from inspiration, but from processes that have to be worked on constantly to achieve new and better ways of doing things. For this reason, we structure the creation of new ideas as an innovation factory, respecting systematic processes that add value to our customers and our internal processes.
Everywhere in the world, and in both of the two areas we supply –industry and construction–, all our customers have the same demands: high-quality products that are easy to use and install and that help to optimise their work.
We have been designing, manufacturing and distributing our products for more than 50 years. Listening to each of our clients and knowing in depth the language of the world of industry and construction to understand and give optimal answers to each of their needs.
Where we are?
Pol. Industrial La Bruguera
Condominio I, Int 27, Condominio Sotavento
Taicang Economic Development Area of Jiangsu Province
We have manufacturing plants in Spain, Germany, China and the United States, as well as 10 logistics centres on four continents, meaning we can stay close to the companies we work with and offer rapid, effective solutions to changing demands.
This is how we have become the main supplier to the world’s leading companies in the automotive, electrical material, electronics and household appliance sectors.
However, we know that providing support means much more than being close at hand, which is why we also provide our customers with the close personal assistance they need, fielding their concerns and acting as a trusted partner.
