Boix history

Effort and dedication


The company began life in a small workshop located in Elche. In that modest location D. José Boix, greatly helped by the dedicated support of his wife Mrs. Maria Luisa Sebastian, began manufacturing repair parts for various machines in the footwear sector. In those days many machine imports weren’t able to get any form of technical backup in the Spanish market.

“Dedication, innovation and commitment … that’s how business works effectively’

 D. José Boix


In 1973, with due thanks to its ingenuity and foresight in developing mechanical solutions, a small company called “José Boix Jaén” was founded and made the very first shoe box machine under this name. The whole story of Boix Maquinaria began with that one small but innovative step.

Family business

In 2011 a generational change occurred. Following the retirement of D. José Boix, his children Fran, Rosa and Juan Antonio, took over control of the business. They were committed to continuing international expansion and development of new product lines and services. They were also intent on devising a way to modernize the entire company without losing sight of the very thing that had helped BOIX reach its high status as industry leader in the first place:

Boix have never forgotten the two key factors that helped make them one of the sector’s prime leaders:
