El Casco was founded in 1920 in the Basque Country of northern Spain. The company manufactured handguns that were soon exported worldwide. During the Great Depression, the owners were forced to manufacture more products for the domestic market, and so in 1932 began the production of the characteristic desk stapler. Today El Casco offers a unique program of noble desk accessories. In order to preserve the quality mark of its origin, the company trains its own young people and teaches the traditional way of manufacturing. Production is carried out with the utmost care and largely by hand. All precision parts bear individual serial numbers and are assembled by hand. The immaculately reflective surface is created by multiple polishing processes through which the steel is prepared for further refinement.
