The EGA Master case study in a new book by ESIC business school

ESIC, the oldest business school in Spain has just published the book "Practical Plan for International Business" written by Jose Maria Sainz de Vicuna, Doctor in Economics and Business Studies, as well as Emeritus Professor in the University of Deusto.

The book presents as references and examples to follow 4 Spanish companies that have been successful in international markets. A full chapter is dedicated specifically to EGA Master, as a family-owned company that has succeeded in exporting 86% of its production to over 150 different countries, with 50% of its sales going to emerging markets.

Article written by the Directors of EGA Master published by the “Bulletin of Economic Studies”

The "Bulletin of Economic Studies" of the University of Deusto, has published in its LXX Volume, Number 214 bulletin an article with the title "Basque Small and Medium enterprises facing a crisis in a globalized world" written by the EGA Master Directors Aner and Inaki Garmendia.

The prestigious bulletin has been published without interruption since 1942 by the University of Deusto, a leading Jesuit university in Spain. Its aim is to publish original works on economic theory and applied economics, mostly related to the issues that affect businesses.

According to the article, the hand tool sector in Spain has suffered the crisis started in 2008 in a particularly intense way. Almost 7 years later, there appears to be no clear recovery, with slow growth in the European market, a very big fragmentation between dozens of brands which are little differentiated from each other, and an increasing competition from fast improving Asian products. The loss of margins suffered during the 2008-2014 period will be hard to revert.
In this uncertain environment industrial SMEs must find ways to distinguish themselves from the rest, opting for investment in human capital, innovation, internationalization and customer orientation.
