MONDRAGON: People, cooperation and competitiveness
Three words that define MONDRAGON, a different business project, with more than 75 years of history, which began in the Basque town of the same name and which is currently one of the main business groups in Spain.
MONDRAGON is a global project, with commercial and productive presence in the five continents. It has productive subsidiaries and corporate delegations in 41 countries and sales in more than 150. With an income of nearly 12,000 million euros and a workforce of more than 80,000 people. The 266 companies and cooperatives that form MONDRAGON operate in the sectors of industry, finance and distribution, and develop initiatives in the field of knowledge, innovation, education and the promotion of new businesses. It includes brands such as Fagor, Orbea, Orona, Laboral Kutxa, Eroski, Ulma, Danobatgroup, LKS Krean, or Mondragon Unibertsitatea, among others.
One of the hallmarks of MONDRAGON is its commitment to innovation, a key aspect to adapt business to new times. MONDRAGON has its own ecosystem of innovation in which the cooperatives themselves, the research centers, the university, and the Center for Corporate Promotion interact.
HUMANITY AT WORK
Its cooperative management model promotes the participation and integration of people in the management, results and ownership of companies. The protagonism of the people, the work in cooperation and the inter-cooperative solidarity is what tries to reflect the motto of the group: “Humanity at work”.
