The factory was specialized in creating chandeliers, ceiling lamps and other lighting fixtures with Swarovski crystals. Most of those lights with crystals were exported to Russia and Arab countries, but also partially sold in El Corte Ingles Shops in Spain.
The new generations of the company founder continued to work on developing the brand according to the market needs, with innovative lighting fixtures. In this way, on 14 of March 1995, a small family business with 3 people, in a utility of 200m2, in Zaragoza, in Villanueva de Gallego, was created by Angel Aparicio and Beatriz Andres. Before creating this Company, Angel Aparicio used to work in his father´s factory of Cristal Chandeliers Manufacturer, with the name Lamparas Aparicio and the Logo an Angel. The idea to have an evil with a symbolic Artisan Turkish Glass Lamp in the hands, came to have a balance with the previous Logo of the Angel. By the way, the Turkish Glass Lamps where one the first lighting products that CristalRecord team was producing and distributing.
Our days CRISTALRECORD S.L. is composed by a young team and with a wide experience in decorative and technical lighting, with Headquarters and Logistic Centre of 4000 m2 and in Zaragoza, another Lighting Warehouse in Barcelona, and Lighting Production facilities in Alicante and Zaragoza.
