In forty years, the company has gone through many phases and experienced many notable business moments, but it has always maintained one goal: to listen carefully to customers in order to offer them the fashion proposals they want.
This strong customer orientation led, in 1975, to the aper ture of the first Zara store, the start of its international expansion in the late eighties and the launch of new fashion formats: Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home and Uterqüe.

Finally, within the telecommunications sector, Telefónica ranks first in this sector and third in the general ranking of companies in Spain.
