Purpose, Vision and Mission
Our Purpose, Vision, and Mission are our 3 fundamental drivers that help us to make a difference in society.
Innovation by developing ventilation solutions that are energy efficient, easy to install, reliable and durable to ensure air quality in all the indoor spaces that we inhabit and pass through.
We spend 90% of our lives in enclosed spaces. We want to live in a world where good air quality is available to everyone.
Our brand S&P has achieved worldwide recognition, thanks to our staff, quality and reliability, and innovation. The philosophical principles on which S&P was founded, and which are maintained to this day, are:
For the S&P project to be strong and consolidated over time, it was necessary that it be based on creativity and providing distinctive products, avoiding imitation of the competition. Over the company’s history, S&P has registered 182 patents, more than 59 industrial models and 4 utility models.
Internationalisation and Growth:
It was clear that in order to ensure the company’s future we had to open up to the world and to enter new, highly competitive markets. This has led us to carry out on-going improvements to our products. S&P is currently a world leader in ventilation, with production centres in Europe, America and Asia. A powerful distribution structure, through subsidiaries and exclusive distributors, allows S&P to be present in all world markets with both products and service.
One of the strengths of S&P has been our constant growth and policy of reinvesting profits in on-going technological improvements, both in research and production and in marketing. This has allowed S&P to be a self-financed company with complete independence in our decision-making process.
We have always believed in our project and we have made it happen. Reality has gone beyond borders and we have become a team. We have shown that our people, their behaviour and their knowledge will build the future.
Soler & Palau was founded in 1951 by Eduard Soler and Josep Palau. In the early years, we worked hard, with great determination, to take Soler & Palau Ventilation Group beyond our borders and give it a global dimension. We are proud to have taken this path with all of the people that participate and have participated in this project.
Our corporate strategy defines both how we aim to position the company on the market and the path we follow to achieve this goal, without compromising the values of our corporate culture. Based on the pillars of Teamwork, Proximity and Respect for personal diversity, we have positioned the company on an international level, while at the same time applying local policies under the umbrella of our global philosophy.
The strength of our business results has given us financial independence with regard to funding. This position allows us to continue our investment across all areas of the business and to become pioneers in research, development and innovation. We anticipate the needs of the market by incorporating new ventilation products and solutions into our catalogue based on air-movement efficiency and energy savings.
Our highly motivated, skilled and honest workforce focuses its efforts on giving our clients only the highest standards of product quality and service.
We continually strive to preserve our values and improve training and knowledge, with the aim of strengthening our position of leadership in the ventilation market and our relationship with clients and partners.
From the beginning, Soler & Palau has seen constant growth. This first led to the enlargement of the original facilities and, later, to the creation of subsidiaries around the world and acquisition of other companies.
Our global philosophy and local policies are some of the keys to our success. Because nobody knows local markets better than the professionals that have direct contact with them.
In order to be closer to our clients, we have factories as well as sales and distribution subsidiaries on five continents. Our organisation is divided into 4 areas:
With direct presence in all countries.
Where we are present in Mexico and the US states of Florida and Wisconsin.
In Peru, Brazil, Chile and Colombia
With subsidiaries in Malaysia, Shanghai, Wuhan, Thailand, Singapore, Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Taiwan, Korea, India, Philippines, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates
With a subsidiary in Sydney.
Soler & Palau Ventilation Group has factories in Spain (Ripoll, Sils, Torelló and Madrid) France, England, Norway, Mexico, Brazil, USA, China (Shanghai and Guangzhou), Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and India
As we believe research and development to be a key source of competitive advantage, S&P has developed a product line with more than 10,000 models to meet all the needs of the market. Our range covers industrial buildings, residential buildings, the tertiary sector, industrial processes and OEMs.
After more than 70 years, S&P products and services are available in more than 90 countries around the world.
Principles of the Company
Here at Soler&Palau we strive to be recognised as a global leader in ventilation by our clients and collaborators. We are proud of our history and corporate culture, and are thus committed to growing and evolving without losing sight of our roots.
Based on the cultural pillars of Humility, Austerity and Transparency, S&P Group applies the following principles:
INTERNATIONALISATION AND GROWTH:
Since the company was founded in 1951, it has aimed to implement a strategy of on-going investment in new products and increased expansion on the global market.
We are driven by the desire to continually improve and, therefore, are pioneers in research, development and innovation in new products and industrial processes.
Self-financing is a key factor for our financial independence and stability.
EXCELLENCE IN MANAGEMENT:
based on our dedication, honesty, high standards and determination to do things right, our commitment is to achieve the high-quality standards and services that our customers deserve.
We endeavour to strengthen our human resources by encouraging teamwork, internal job promotion and training. Our managers are trained to delegate responsibility, having trust and total respect for each individual. Now in the second decade of the 21st century, by developing and improving management tools (performance evaluation, life-long learning, interdepartmental communication and internal codes of conduct), we strive to achieve the following goals for the future:
To cultivate respect for the individual through the delegation of responsibilities (Empowerment).
To actively manage the contribution and transfer of ideas among the group’s different business units (Best Practices).
To promote achievement through the alignment of our corporate values with each individual’s involvement in the development of the vision and mission of our business project.
To identify, promote and retain talent.
