Abstract

Studying family companies which have carried out their activities throughout the years is a way to analyse the innovation process and to show the role of these companies in the spatial development and industrial location. This article deals with Salvador Massó e Hijos from its creation in 1883 to its closure in 1994. This company pioneered the manufacture of canned fish in Spain and succeeded in keeping the entrepreneurial spirit for three generations.
