Since he founded SPES in 1947, Chemical Engineer Guillermo Gormaz Lopetegui, promoted team work and constant technologic innovation as the basic attitude for daily activities in each of the company's areas, facing the different markets more efficiently. This vision is still present and is fundamental in the training process of every member of the SPES team. Consequently, our consolidation as providers in new and more demanding markets is sustained by our constant search of innovative products; our permanent investment regarding advanced technologies; our incorporation of ISO 9001 management systems, and our personnel?s commitment and training. During our company?s early days, it supplied the potable water treatment market with aluminum sulfate. Chile?s privileged coastal zones are an essential source of raw material that cannot be found in other countries. One of these is fish oil, in which part of our research efforts have concentrated, allowing us to manufacture a variety of fish oil based products. Constant investment in advanced technology has allowed our company to incorporate the most modern oil hydrogenation, refining and deodorization plants, developed to satisfy diverse needs and keep processes harmonic with the environment. Our company?s formula is based on trustworthiness, seriousness, perseverance and commitment to clients, permanently improving processes, equipment, infrastructure and its human resource, in order to provide our clients with unique products, in the due time and at competitive prices.
