Throughout the years, the company has adapted to provide extensive technical support offering the best solution to meet and exceed the latest industry requirements.

In 1999, the company started its journey in the business world by distributing hand tools and engineering plastics in Barcelona. Four years later, thanks to its efforts in the automotive sector, Antala was selected as the sole distributor for Dow Automotive in Spain, Portugal and North Africa. At that time, the manufacturing industry was changing and demand for lightweight materials and composites was becoming evident across the construction, automotive, aerospace and rail industries. Whilst strategically positioned to support this revolution, Antala had recognised the advantages of bonding technology in assembly production. It was at this moment, Antala emerged as specialists in industrial adhesives and sealants.

Once the company were consolidated in the adhesives industry, they entered the world of lubrications becoming a distributor of the Molykote brand.

In 2012, Antala opened its first industrial warehouse outside Spain. Antala UK was born and in the same year, they became an official distributor of Dow Automotive UK. Distribution agreements were also signed with Dowsil and Huntsman Araldite in the UK.

The Antala portfolio grew to include Coatings and the industrial lubrication range was extended with the signing of Krytox and Jax. The Tectyl-Valvoline brand was added to provide customers with anti-corrosion solutions.

Over the years, Antala has established itself as a technical company with strong knowledge and expertise across a wide range of industries and applications, from encapsulating adhesives for new generation electronic devices, to lubricants that maintain the functioning of large nuclear power plants.
