Talleres Blanchadell

 Blanchadell Workshops is a company whose exact origin is unknown but, for the five generations that we know have succeeded at least, dating back to 1860, so, if not the oldest, is one of the oldest Vinaròs. Born as blacksmith working for both agriculture and the naval industry, making irrigation wells and farming tools and rigging of sailing vessels were built in many yards that back then, there were in Vinaròs.

When from the 20’s the fishing boats began to be propelled by mean of engines, the workshop specialized in repairing of Semi-Diesel engines, in which activity, after the Spanish Civil War achieved great prestige throughout the Spanish Mediterranean coast, continuing in the same premises of the ironworks, three warehouses adjoining of three houses of fishermen in front to the beach of the Vinaròs port.

En 1960, el taller adquirió un local contiguo, antiguo almacén de hierro y de carbón, que le permitió ampliar las instalaciones y adaptarse a los nuevos motores Diesel que, en sustitución de los semi-diesel, se comenzaron a instalar en las embarcaciones existentes y en las de nueva construcción. Aprovechando la amplitud de las nuevas instalaciones, entonces ya se pudieron acometer las actividades complementarias que aún persisten en la actualidad, como la fabricación e instalación de maquinaria de pesca, timones, líneas de ejes, tanques, etc. Desde entonces podemos suministrar, fabricar e instalar todo lo que de mecánica lleve cualquier embarcación.

In 1960, we acquired an adjoining warehouse, a former storage of iron and coal, which allowed to expand the facilities and to adapt to new diesel engines that it began to be installed on existing vessels and in the new constructions. Leveraging the breadth of new facilities, then we are able to undertake the additional activities that still persist today, as the manufacture and installation of fishing machinery, rudders, shaft lines, tanks, etc.. Since then we can supply, fabricate and install everything  in mecanichs for boats.
