HISTORY

SAGALÉS S.A. resulted from the fusion of several passenger transport companies.

The first traces of economic activity date back to 1641 when farmers were transported to different markets. After industrialization, 50 years later, and still with the first generation of Sagalés at the helm, we dedicated ourselves as artisans to the business of wool farming. This was how the very first routes were created, bringing ice taken from wells in the mountains of Moià to Barcelona which formed the first networks communicating diverse towns. Then, in the 18th Century, transport began to be carried out using carts, sprung carts and stagecoaches, and in the 19th Century, the first motor vehicles were introduced, which gave rise to regular services and greatly facilitated the spread of transport.

The Civil War resulted in the collectivization of the company. When it was over, the remains of vehicles were gathered in order to re-start activity. In fact, our company was established in 1944. From then, Sagalés began to operate via different subsidiaries, in order to operate urban services within important towns such as Granollers and Manresa. Despite the post-Francoist era, the oil crisis and the post-Olympic financial crisis, Sagalés continued to be the leader in transport; with the addition of discretionary services, occasional tourist services, the transport of workers, school services, etc.

 

 


In its over 370 years of history, all generations have been at the forefront of the transport sector providing services to organizations and events, and covering the most important transport needs of Catalonia.

Some facts worth mentioning in this sense, are the implementation of the first T-10 in the state in the 80's, and the implementation of ramps for the disabled and cards with chips in the 90's. We have received awards for being one of the oldest companies in Catalonia, the promotion of business association and our company's career; we have been awarded the Gold Medal for passenger transport, the Placa Mèrit transport award from the Regional Catalonian Government and the Marketing Winners Prize, but to mention a few.
