Who we are?

       Our long story

Quite a long time, actually in the early 80’s, a vision was born; to create a company whose equipment and services would be valued by clients, respected by distributors and loved by its employees. At the end of the 80’s that vision was a reality as we could never have imagined and we became a market leader in Spain and Portugal.

Thanks to our expertise and passion, in the 90’s we continued expanding our presence in the international market, including the US, and also improving our machines, technology, people and training. This allowed us, at the end of the 90’s, to be part of the prestigious Ali group, a point of reference for foodservice equipment industry over the world.

In 2009 we become part of Carpigiani Group, and it enabled to join forces with the italian GBG creating the CarpigianiHoreca brand but we continued operating under the name Sencotel and GBG. The merger was a succes from start to finish, bringing with new market opportunities, numerous synergy benefits, and a clear focus on the future.

Today we bring our tradition and dedication to more than 800 clients around the world, reaching more than 750.000 business with our machines and services daily. Our machines and service help our clients fuel positive culture enabling to work happy.
