THE HISTORY OF CREM

The major challenge when the massive European tourist invasion to Spain gained momentum 1964/65 was to prepare and adjust the hotel- and restaurant trade for this new phenomenon.
Rafael Olaso Peirò was very familiar with this trade and began importing exclusive, innovative and necessary products from Italy for developing the hotel- and restaurant market in Spain.
In 1985 he started constructing an espresso machine which bore the same name as his company – “Expobar” for the hotel- and restaurant market in Spain.
In 1988 Rafael Olaso Peirò presented the espresso machine “Expobar” to the Spanish market. Subsequently he began exporting to Europe.
