MICUNA was created in 1973, when our founder, Francisco García Moreno, together with his wife María Eugenia, decided to fulfil one of his life’s ambitions by opening a small carpentry workshop in the town of Silla (Valencia). He was a hard-working, visionary, helpful and enterprising young carpenter, and he manufactured wooden cots.
At that time, in Spain, there were a lot of metal cots on the market, meaning that our wooden cots were an innovation.
The first steps were taken on a small scale. In addition to designing and manufacturing the cots, Francisco personally undertook all the sales work, with the help of his brothers, as well as delivery and service in the shop. This dedication, personalized service and exceptional care meant that the demand for our brand grew very quickly, as we gained the trust and commitment of all our customers.
It was in 1981 that the company was renamed MICUNA, having borne Francisco’s name, FGM, up until that date. The factory also moved to larger premises in Sollana (Valencia), next to the Albufera Natural Park. And we have been there ever since. All of us consider it a luxury to be able to enjoy one of the most unique landscapes in our community, and work alongside it.
In a short time, thanks to the quality and design of the cots, the company went on to expand its facilities and employ more staff. We became a leader within the domestic market and cultivated a presence abroad, which continues to grow.
Since then, more than 1,000,000 babies have slept in our cots. Many of these babies are now parents themselves, and are re-using their own cots for their children. We are proud to be a part of the history of all these families, and we are proud that our products have been with them for so many years and generations, providing quality and design, in addition to complete safety. They have given us the responsibility of watching over their children’s dreams.
Right from the beginning, safety has been and is so important. We were the first company in Spain to apply European safety regulations in our cots, even before it was a requirement in the market. We have had the privilege and the responsibility of being chosen by millions of families around the world, and given this special place in their children’s rooms. In addition to wooden cots, we offer children’s furniture, accessories for the bedroom, bedding and highchairs for babies.
It is thanks to the excellence demonstrated by our history that we have received numerous business awards, as well as some major international awards for designs such as the OVO highchair.
After Francisco retired in 2008, the family business was passed on to the second generation. Jorge, Eugenia and Javier García, three of his five children, remain in senior positions of responsibility and are fully involved in the management of the company. On several occasions, the family business has renewed a Family Protocol that was signed for the first time in 2004. It reflects the family’s faithful commitment to the company, its employees, customers and society.
At Micuna, we have a vision; to protect the dreams of childhood.
In order to achieve our dream of a better childhood, we work with great enthusiasm, optimism and energy to create products and services that are innovative, responsible and sustainable.
We are MICUNA, we are your people, and we are your brand
