Mayor Tapizados, a clear example of excellence in the family business succession in Spain

The businessman José Pascual Ortega García founded Mayor Tapizados in 1985. He ventured himself into creating his own brand and line of sofas endorsed by his gathered experience. He started in the profession when he was only 13 years old, which made him a master craftsman upholsterer.

Ever since, Mayor Tapizados has undergone a constant evolution. The company was the number one brand of the exposed-wood sofas production in Spain during the 90s thanks to their great effort and hard work. To achieve such a goal and meet the constant demand of product, the company increased its workforce reaching the number of 20 employees.

The second generation enters the company in the year 2002. This was the time for the qualitative leap of Mayor to be positioned gradually as a leading company in the sector. The children of José Pascual, Raquel and Javier, were the people in charge of facing the great challenges posed by the 21st century. With the unconditional support of their father, they adapted to the need of a continuously changing market in an agile and dynamic way.

Nowadays, their know-how has won Mayor the place of leading manufacturer in their sector, in both daybeds and modular compositions, presenting a modern, contemporary and state-of-the-art line. Their modern facilities cover more than 8,000 m2 and are located in Yecla (Murcia), a town known as the "furniture city" due to the deep-rooted tradition in this sector.

Mayor offers a customised product for the end customer depending on their needs.
This is the key to their increasing success in both national and international markets. Currently they export their products to countries such as France, Portugal, Israel or Estonia.

Their success is possible thanks to their young and inspired team formed by more than 60 people, which reveals that the core value of Mayor is their labour force. The main values that its founder, José Pascual Ortega, held dear are reflected in that team: effort, teamwork, desire for achievement, trust, simplicity and enthusiasm for new challenges. Always focused on offering the best product and service to the customer.
