We would like to share with you something that, due to the pandemic and to our workload, has gone unnoticed and have not be able to celebrate: At Celulosas Vascas we celebrate 40 years as a company!

CV PROTECTION 40 ANNIVERSARYMany things have changed since we started: from 4 to 46 people on staff; from a tiny local of a few meters, to more than 6,000m2; from selling to our closest regions to exporting to more than 20 countries… in addition to our logo!

CV PROTECTION LOGO THROUGH YEARSOur journey began in Erandio (Biscay), back in 1981, selling rolls of industrial cellulose to workshops and companies in the Basque Country, when it was a novel product that came to replace the traditional — and unsanitary — cloth rags.

Little by little, attending to our client’s needs, complementary products such as cellulose dispensers, soaps and hygiene products, containers, bins, etc., were incorporated, also having to attend to the new space needs that required this type of product, so the company moved to Sopelana.

Continuing with this effort to find innovative products that would meet the needs of customers, those that nowadays mainly compose our catalog were incorporated: gloves, disposable clothing and zipper bags. This meant that, once again, we had to expand not only our facilities, moving to Derio, but also the workforce, incorporating new employees in areas such as the technical dpt, administration or the warehouse.

As the volume of customers grew along with either the sales nor the geographical area of influence, we also added warehouses in Zamudio, Vitoria and Miranda de Ebro. In addition, we incorporated the brand name CV Protection into Celulosas Vascas, in pursuit of our internationalization process. After several years with multiple venues, it was decided to unify the different pavilions. Amorebieta was the place chosen, with a custom-made project, and great enthusiasm, that was the reflection of years of hard work and effort.

In 2008 we inaugurated our new headquarters in this strategic logistics enclave, with 6.300 m2 and space for over 7.000 pallets. We currently also count with 6 loading and unloading docks as well as an important fleet of commercial and transport vehicles.

40 years bring a lot of good news but also sad ones, and that is why we did not want to end this post without remembering our colleagues – and friends-  that left us before their time, whom we miss every day and without whom we would not be where we are now… A special mention to our founding partner Gabriel Sanz, who left us last summer, after a life dedicated to building his dream. With his values and his way of life, he left a print in all of us. We truly hope that we will continue with his legacy and grow not only as a company but as people as well.

We also wanted to take the opportunity to thank all our customers for the trust they have placed in us all of these years: without you it could not have been possible. We hope we will keep on counting with it. You will continue to count with our full commitment and our personalized treatment, which are our hallmark.




Thanks to google Photographer Pablo Andujar Urkiola, we already have available the Bussiness view or virtual tour of our facilities. Since you are far away, we wanted to find a way for you to see what we see, and having tools that allow it, why not? However, remember that you are always welcome to visit us and our facilities.

The European parliament has recently approved a new directive that will force all the hiring entities of the European Union to use electronic means to announce  the hiring processes, receive offers from the bidder companies or to make the proper notifications of any public contest.

This directive belongs to the “Europe 2020” project, for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in this decade.
