Manuel Raimundo founded Raimundo Guitarras in 1968. He started in a small family shop but soon began to participate in national fairs, which helped to get new customers and familiarise the Raimundo brand around Spain. Soon Manuel began make higher quality instruments for the export market and by 1974 was attending international music trade fairs in Frankfurt, Paris and Los Angeles. By 1980 he had a staff of over 20 employees making around 8,000 instruments a year. At this point Raimundo moved to a new factory in the “Boca De Jarro” industrial park, in the city of Paterna, where they are still located. The 1980s and 1990s saw further expansion into international markets and in 1998 Manuel Raimundo's son Victor joined the company (and is now its leader). In 2005 Raimundo began exporting to the Far East. In 2010 the company invested in the latest manufacturing technology and IT systems, they also introduced steel string guitars for the first time. Circa 2017 Raimundo Guitars had a staff of 29 craftsmen making more than 12,000 instruments a year, of which 85% are exported. A US Raimundo subsidiary has been established in Doral, Florida, to distribute guitars directly to the American market.
