HOW IT STARTED
As my name suggests, I come from Spain. I was born in San Sebastian, but later lived in Madrid, where my father had a business whose main activity was the food and drink trade.
In the 1960s, the Spanish community in the Netherlands grew and with it the need for Spanish products. My father responded to this. First in Spain and later by building a chain of 10 shops in the Netherlands and a restaurant offering Spanish food, drinks and entertainment with famous Spanish artists.
In the meantime, sales had expanded further to Switzerland, Germany and Belgium. At the age of 20, my father put me in charge of the Belgian branch. I managed this branch for several years, but when I saw the opportunities in the electronics sector around 1980, I definitely started for myself. With a starting capital of about 75 euros, I started with a small shop, which gradually developed into the current Sanel.
At the time I started, I had no idea about the Sanel of today. None of the solutions we offer today existed then. The vision that we have inherited from our country is mainly "entrepreneurship and the will to be the best of myself". Accepting that the world is changing at an ever-increasing pace. Keep growing, dare to make choices. Hope that there is more good than harm. Many of our products are solutions and technical tools that ensure that information flows from one person to another. They work together. Our goal is always a long-term connection, where people are at the centre and technology improves.
