Our story

Who we are

Family & international spirit.

Openers and closers is a family company based in barcelona since 1989.  The company was founded with the objective of producing high quality electric strike for the international market. Nowadays, his daughter and sons run the company with the same spirit and passion while looking forward to new goals and achievements.  We built our first electric strike in a small garage, and in 1990 we started our worldwide adventure by making our first sale in the uk. Over the next 10 years, we expanded our market all over the eu, always offering new and innovative products to satisfy all of our clients’ needs.  New challenges followed the turn of the century when we decided to sell our products at a national level. Time had come to build up our brand; our aim: excellence.  Even during the financial crisis of 2008 and our internal restructuration in 2012, we continued developing new products and ideas. The positive changes done over the last few years have helped us grow. Now we are ready to take the leap with our new products, and the experience acquired to develop them.
