José María Naberan arrived in Ondarroa in 1960, after completing his studies in France, to start a new project alongside his father, Imanol Naberan. They began by making webbing and distributing fishing nets under the name “Imanol Naberan”, setting off on a voyage that has continued until today.
The company gradually became consolidated and after years of work it began its international journey with French fishing vessels. It was also this year that a business model was chosen, focusing on the purchase and sale of materials.
After acquiring the Planchalut program from Ifremer in 1992, they started to make fishing nets. Thus, two years later the new “Naberan Sareak SL” company was created. This novelty meant a change of course in the company's strategy with the new generation. That is why, three years later, the facilities were moved to Mutriku.
The company was strengthened with José María Naberan's focus on trawl nets and as a result, in 1998, it took another step in its internationalisation via the Adrien Group, this time with the Senegalese market alongside the Ababacar Ngom distributor.
After years of experience in the French market, Naberan is consolidated in France and decides to open facilities in Guilvinec in the year 2000.
In 2008 Naberan starts breaking into the Moroccan market as an advisor of the Marona company, then the owner of 38 vessels. After the sale of this company, Naberan has continued to supply nets to vessels in Agadir.
