The company dates back to 1949, when Juan Gassó Bosch and José María Espoy founded the distribution company Gaes, upon receiving an order from a friend’s father to bring a hearing aid from Great demand for these devices and Mr Gassó’s enterprising spirit were key factors in its success. Business growth was intense and in just a short time it became the sector’s largest company, eventually reaching the current figure of500 hearing establishments worldwide.

Importing hearing aids was the initial activity of the company, which was gradually to expand its business, despite the host of obstacles the partners were forced to overcome in importing the products to Spain.
