Gerio obrador antiguo After the end of the Civil War, in 1939, a group of confectioners from Girona opened a common workshop in a small place on Carrer Joaquim Vayreda. Candied fruit, nougat, chocolate, all kinds of candies and confits were made there, all absolutely handmade.

In 1957, Pere Saguer i Burjó, (Navata, 1920 – Girona 1998) took over the company. For a baker, the sector where he was trained and in which he worked for many years in Castellfollit de la Roca, it was quite a business adventure. The acquisition of Productos Gerió, far from being a problem, was a new challenge that had to be faced from scratch. Then the factory was located in Carrer de Juli Garreta in Girona in a 270 m2 warehouse. Caramelos Gerio 1957

Gerio Turrones Between the 60s and 70s, the company consolidated itself as a national benchmark. With artisanal work and a lot of patience, their nougats and confits began to sweeten thousands of homes.

The industrialization of the trade that was revolutionizing the sector and the growth of the city of Girona, turned the central workshop into a space that was too small for the company. And so it was that, in 1970, the activity was moved to Carrer Alacant in the Sant Narcís neighborhood of Girona to a 1,000 m2 warehouse, later expanded to 2,500 m2.

Gerio fabrica 2002 In 2002 the company was forced to look for a new location due to the TGV project on its way through the city of Girona. The transfer takes effect gradually between 2007 and 2010 to a new plant of 7,500 m2 built on a plot of 25,000 m2 in the town of Bonmatí, which will therefore become the new headquarters of Configirona SA. The new plant is equipped with the latest technological advances with new machinery and new facilities to offer high quality products, taking care of details and seeking excellence.
