The Valencian manufacturer specialising in padel courts, Padel Galis, closed the 2022 financial year with record figures in turnover, exports and number of employees, demonstrating the consolidation of the company founded by Fran Pérez Galisteo more than a decade ago as an international reference in the construction and installation of padel courts.
The company closed its last financial year with a turnover of 20.6 million euros, maintaining the figures achieved the previous year, a year that was a turning point after the exponential growth of padel worldwide.
These circumstances led Padel Galis to make significant investments in 2022 in order to keep up with the growth achieved in recent years and also to overcome unforeseen events arising from global tensions in the logistics chain.
This difficult situation, including inflation in all construction materials, has not stopped Padel Galis from selling more than 70% abroad, with Northern Europe, the Middle East, the United States and Mexico being the main markets.
The entry of the Atitlan group as a reference shareholder in 2021 (70% share) has allowed the Valencia-based manufacturer to speed up its international expansion and improve its facilities. This commitment to professionalising its structure has led to an almost 50% increase in staff over the last financial year, to 88 employees.
In the immediate future, the most relevant project is the new manufacturing plant planned for 2024, which will expand production capacity to 6,000 courts per year, thus tripling the current volume and shortening delivery times. This expansion aims to meet the expansion plan for the coming years and to guarantee a service that is close to the client, thanks to the consolidation of long-term relationships with its international partners.
Padel Galis has completed different strategic agreements to consolidate its position as the court for professional padel players. The most noteworthy is the collaboration with Wilson to produce and supply the racket sports brand’s court, as well as the partnership with the Argentinean player Fernando Belasteguín (“Bela”), world number one for 16 years, as brand ambassador.
In this line, the company founded by Fran Pérez Galisteo has also formalised an agreement with the Professional Padel Players Association (PPA) to develop a court model together during 2023. This commitment reinforces its commitment to the innovation of new products, such as the creation of ultra-resistant courts for winds of up to 260 km/h, and to the growth in popularity of padel around the world.
