Embega, S. Coop. was founded in 1971 by a group of workers from the former household appliance company Agni (today BSH), on the banks of Ega river, in Estella (Navarra, Spain).
Since the beginning, Embega was integrated in the Caja Laboral's Enterprise Division of the Mondragon Corporation. Currently, Embega is integrated in the Components Division of Mondragon.
They began their cooperative with 43 members, specialized in machining, screen-printing and lithographing of metal plates for household appliances, automation and other decorative elements. In 1979, the anodizing plant for aluminium profiles, with 120 workers, was started.
In 1982 a new product line was created: the Printed Gaskets Division, launched under the name of Egaprint, contributing with sealing solutions to a large range of products and markets. Seven years later, a new activity was launched: HMI Division (Human–machine interface), manufacturing graphic overlays, membrane switches and, later on, metal (anti-vandalism) keyboards. At that time there were about 210 workers on the cooperative staff.
At the end of the 90s, a new domestic appliances component was launched: an air-to-air, heat transfer, water condenser for tumble dryers.
In 2006, Embega first subsidiary was established in Poland, due to their position in the white goods market,
A new product line, evolution of membrane switches was started early in 2013: flexible, backlighted, capacitive buttons and keyboards within the HMI division.
