About Us

Industrias Metalúrgicas RIZ SL was founded in february 1941 by Salvador Almirall Torrens in Barcelona. Since our foundation we have been producers of metallic products for hair styling addressed to hairdressing, costume jewelry and perfumery, mainly hair clips, hair pins, headbands, and other items for the hair ornament.

Since the beginning, and throughout all these years, two guidelines have been always present in our performance: manufacture top quality products, and offer a high level of service to our customers.

For this reason, we have always established long-term relationships with our partners and customers, proven by more than 60 years working with some of them, and by the projects and products developed together.

Our commitment with continuous improvement and our extensive experience as producers of metallic products for hair allow us to deliver high value added products and services.
