Company history

1977

Josep Vall Planas, founder and current president of the company, installs the first Spanish Type B gaming machine in Bar Tao with his partners, the Lao brothers. Thanks to their enterprising spirit, they open the company’s first gaming hall just a few months later.

1981

After several years of hard work and effort, VALISA INTERNACIONAL’s first offices are opened in Carretera Castellar (Terrassa, Spain). The team, made up of five employees, have grown with the business and fought to make it one of the foremost companies in the sector.

1982

The company makes its first nationwide expansion to Seville. This launches a decade of expansion in the hospitality sector, bringing it to Aragon, Madrid, Andalusia, Catalonia and Castilla La Mancha.

1998

The Valisa Group acquires the company Automáticos Alcarria, dedicated to operating gaming machines in the hospitality sector in Guadalajara.

2000

The company’s rapid growth leads to its second big move to new facilities located at Calle de Colom 535, in Terrassa. In this period, the company comes to create its own trade names. This is thanks to competitive improvements in all of its spheres of operation, along with its market experience and knowledge, and the strength and motivation of its team of 120 employees. The Valisa Group acquires the company Casino Torremar, dedicated to operating gaming halls in Andalusia.

2003

The PRODUCTOS ELECTRÓNICOS DEL JUEGO [electronic gambling products] division of the business is formed. It is responsible for the regulatory adaptation, manufacturing and distribution of gaming machines and other gambling-related products, in collaboration with other European companies.

2006

To celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary, Valisa hosts an unforgettable evening for all of its employees at the Hotel Juan Carlos I in Barcelona.

2008

Pioneering action by the Community of Madrid brings sports betting into gaming halls.

2009

The company continues to expand domestically by opening new gaming halls, through both sole and joint ventures, all while providing halls with innovative gaming machine services.

2011

Josep Vall Royuela, vice president of Valisa, is appointed president of ANESAR (Spanish Association of Gaming Hall and Arcade Owners [Asociación Española de Empresarios de Salones de Juego y Recreativos]). That same year, the Vall family assumes 100% ownership of Valisa. After working hand-in-hand for more than 30 years, the company ends its partnership with the Cirsa Group. This marks the end of a long path of success and companionship with our former shareholders.

2017
