About Us

Some History

Ovidio Martinez S.A. was first founded by Mr. Blas Martinez in 1845 in the region of “La Mancha”, Spain, world’s number one region in the production of wine alcohol, focusing its activity in the alcohol industry. In 1967 it absorbs Talleres Salvador Gomez, another firm working in the alcohol sector.

In 1970 Ovidio Martinez S.A. creates Manufacturas Metalicas de Tomelloso S.A. a subsidiary company for the construction and erection of farm equipment and manufacturing of equipment from diverse materials.

In 1971 merges with the company Francisco Garcia, that had been in the alcohol sector since the 1900. This merge triggers the birth of the new company name “Talleres Ovidio Martinez S.A.” (TOMSA). During these years the company is registered as an exporting company, starting its growth worldwide. TOMSA installs the first vacuum distillation plant for ethanol in the industry.

During the 80’s and beginning of 90’s TOMSA owns five distilleries, two in Spain, two in Argentina and one in Panama.

In the late 90’s, the company undergoes major changes in its structure and the new company Tomsa Destil S.L. is created. During that period the company decides to leave behind the ownership of distilleries focusing its activities in the engineering and construction of ethanol plants. Since 1997, Tomsa Destil has built over 500 projects all around the world with distillation units ranging up to 1,000,000 litres per day.
