Hypatia celebrates its 20th anniversary

The 11th of October, Hypatia commemorated its 20th anniversary at its workshop with all the employees and some customers and authorities. The company celebrated its 20 years of history in one of the best moments for GNC Hypatia. This year, the firm has reached a record turnover of 12 million of euros and 30 machines sold in various countries; the forecast for next year is also very positive.

During the celebration, the president of Nicolás Correa Group, Jose Nicolás-Correa, highlighted the great capacity of the firm to overcome the difficulties and expressed its satisfaction with the company’s trajectory. Over the last years, the company has experienced a great development thus in 2016 it has to expand facilities to respond to the growing demand of its products, both milling machines and accessories (automatic tool changers and static tool magazines).

GNC Hypatia was created as a subsidiary of Nicolás Correa S.A. in 1997, for the manufacturing of milling machines of a smaller size. Fernando Huidobro, general manager of GNC Hypatia since its inception, emphasised the challenge that it has been to start a company from scratch and the difficulties that they have faced over these two decades, especially during the crisis in Spain. Nevertheless, the hard work and dedication of all its team during these 20 years has allowed the company’s growth. Nowadays, with more than 800 machines sold around the world, Hypatia is a consolidated company in the machine tool sector.
