A story based on experience and invention
Viudez Puerta was one of the leading performers in the history of polishing and grinding floors. It all began when Francisco Viudez Valderrama, in the mid-1960s, manually polished marble, terrazzo and hydraulic mosaic floors, decided to find a more efficient working system and developed the first polishing machines and associated accessories.
The new system was so well received by professionals that the company combined polishing and equipment sales for a few years until 1984, when it concentrated exclusively on the development, manufacture and sale of machines, to which he brought his many years of experience as a polisher.
The distribution of the products throughout the country enabled the spread of Viudez work systems.
In 1990, the company added its current name Viudez Puerta, S.L. to its catalogue of machines and cleaning products. Shortly after, they installed themselves in a 3000 m2 facility where floor polishing machines, cleaning machines and accessories are designed, manufactured and distribute.
In the beginning of the 2000, the BLOCK abrasive fixing system, resin diamond abrasive and the RA series of traditional polishing machine were integrated for making the traditional machines more user-friendly.
In the year 2005, the S-525 satellite polisher was launched, which was entirely designed and manufactured by Viudez Puerta and included two patents when it was launched.
Maintaining the commitment to constant innovation, new improvements were added to the range of diamond abrasives in the following years with the double-ring formulation for coarse grits and the system for treating soils with silicates was completed with the introduction of the V6 and V8 to the V5 product range.
Another milestone in Viudez Puerta’s success story is the high-speed MA “Camaleón” series machine presented at the Hygienalia + Pulire trade fair in 2015, which offers bigger and better surfaces for polishing, grinding and crystallising floors.
In the last few years, Viudez Puerta has held more theoretical and practical courses in its facilities to teach and explain customers in the latest developments of machinery, products and fluids.
With the view to the future, Viudez Puerta listens daily to the needs of his customers to develop new shapes and to provid always the best solutions.

MANUFACTURE OF THE MACHINERY
Always one step ahead
The efficiency of Viudez Puerta devices is based on three factors in development and manufacture.
Before the production of the machines, we were foremen and therefore we know the language the ground speaks. For more than 60 years we have lived very close to this profession.
For us, the letters R and D (research and development) are much more than an acronym: They summarise our understanding of manufacturing, with innovation always at the fist place.
We listen carefully to the opinions of our customers so that we know their needs in order to offer them the solutions they require.
