ITV ICE MAKERS, THE COMPANY, THE FAMILY
ITV is a family owned company, that has been manufacturing ice machines for 40 years. The company was founded by Octavio Cordon, a refrigeration engineer that worked for the biggest refrigeration company in Spain at the time. In those years, most ice machines arrived to Spain from the US, at a very high cost, and with duties to be paid. Octavio had the vision of manufacturing ice machines within the company he worked for, but the owners wouldn’t hear of it. Sales were soaring, as Spain tourism industry was growing double digit, and thousands of restaurants, hotels and bars, needed refrigeration equipment.
So, Octavio decided to sell his shares in the company, and start his own, which he named Industria Técnica Valenciana, meaning Technical Industry of Valencia. He wasn’t sure whether he would end up manufacturing other equipment apart from the ice machines, so he didn’t wasn’t to compromise with a name. In the end, after forty years, ITV has only manufactured ice machines, but quite successfully.
Very soon, the products that ITV designed were very successful, not only in Spain, but in many other countries. They were competitive and reliable, and the company was famous for its unparalleled level of customer service.
Years went by, and ITV grew consistently, developing new products, wining new markets, new customers. Time came to bring in the second generation to help in the business, so Cristina Cordón, Octavio’s daughter, started working for ITV.
Today, Cristina and her husband Javier, run the company. The new generation focused on structuring ITV’s team, facilitating the transformation for the future to come, creating new technologies and practices in lean manufacturing, quality control, competitivity, product development, and energy efficiency, whilst not losing the values that made ITV great.
Since 1981, new products have been developed, new markets have been won, new customers have joined us. Today, ITV is a leading and prestigious company in the hospitality industry. but we’re still a family owned business, with a family philosophy in our relationships with our team, our customers, and our suppliers.
Our company’s philosophy of family origin differentiates itself by pursuing the goal of building long-lasting relationships with clients and vendors. Furthermore, identifying, understanding, and meeting their needs also plays a very important part. By sticking to the R&D investment policy, ITV has slowly increased their number of resources devoted to the growth and improvement of the production and company’s management systems
