Company
Who we are

Cauchos Karey was founded in 1986 as an initiative of its mother company, Grupo Karey. Made up of the companies Karey & Solano Footwear, Plásticos Karey and Cauchos Ebro, the new company decided to set up business in the province of Alicante.

Since the very beginning, our company has been devoted to manufacturing and distributing expanded EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) and vulcanised RUBBER sheeting. Although the original idea was to supply the footwear sector, nowadays, the company has found its place in a multitude of new markets where its materials allow for experimentation and innovation in original and even unprecedented products.

The company facilities cover an area of 15,000 m2, dedicated to the manufacturing of current products and the Research, Development and Innovation of new ones, meaning that the company is able to offer a series of materials and products with an endless range of applications in different industries, as well as a great capacity to meet the most challenging demands from our customers. This high level of production and extensive distribution network guarantee the customer a speedy, reliable service both in Spain and abroad.

Many years of experience in the market and a high production capacity have contributed to the company's leading position in the country and have helped create its strong international image, backed up by the quality of its products and personalised customer service.

Currently, Cauchos Karey is dedicating a large part of their efforts towards reaching out to new industries and developing new applications derived from their products. The immediate consequence of these efforts is the manufacturing and distribution of Cauchos Karey's materials in markets which have up until now been unexplored by the primary sector. New requirements in the sectors of industrial design, sports, sailing, automobile, traffic management, orthopaedics, flooring, packaging, advertising, etc., combined with trends and new consumer preferences, mean that Cauchos Karey's materials can be seen in more and more places every day, many of them previously unimaginable.

What we do
in Footwear Outsoles

EVA sheeting is mainly used as a material in itself or can be combined with other materials to create outsoles and midsoles in shoe manufacturing. Our products include sheets, wedges and other EVA components with differing mixtures, hardness, designs, finishes, thickness, dimensions and colours.

We also offer rubber sheets in varying mixtures, hardness, designs, thickness and colours.

What we do
in Footwear Insoles

EVA is the ideal raw material for insole manufacturing, thanks to the fact that it can be produced using different mixtures and degrees of foaming. Transformed by die cutting or thermomolding process, insoles are manufactured only with EVA or combined with other materials.


We manufacture either in sheets or rolls (joining together sheet to sheet), giving our customers the possibility to work with continuous rolls. All our materials are available in different thicknesses and dimensions, even with breathable designs, in a wide range of colours and mixtures.

What we do
in Orthopedics

The orthopaedic industry requires technical and mouldable materials that can be applied to their different manufacturing processes when constructing orthoses or orthopaedic shoes. EVA adapts perfectly as the raw materials for developing these products, as it is a light, resistant material that can be shaped and customised to fulfil the needs of each clinic or orthopaedic aids supplier.

We manufacture EVA with high-memory mixtures and low density for the production of moulded insoles, manufactured by vacuum, thermomolding or milling (CAD/CAM). Our products can be treated with special Sanitized® antimicrobial treatments, conductive and anti-dust additives, incorporating natural cork dust and in multi-colour, marble or swirl color effects. Recent success in developing products for this industry has led us to develop special mixtures, incorporating new polymers with new product specifications. We also manufacture multi-layer sheets 0by vulcanisation (without the use of adhesives), offering our clients advantages and possibilities that were previously unheard of in this industry.

What we do
in Sports

EVA is a highly versatile material, a property that allows it to be used in the production of an infinite range of sports products; water sport pads (surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing...), handlebar tapes and grips for cycling, boom covers for windsurfing and kitesurfing, seat padding (cycling, kayaking...), paddle tennis racquet fillings, sports equipment protection (motorcycling, skiing, snowboarding, horseriding...), as well as other inserts and board fixtures (snowboarding, kitesurfing...).

Produced both in sheets or rolls (sheets joined together) so that it can later be transformed, die cut, milled or moulded. We also manufacture tailor-made semi-finished or finished products to meet any customers' requirements.

What we do
in Industrial Design

EVA is commonly used in the production in different sectors of industry. Our materials are easy to transform, and they can be applied to an infinite array of projects where special specifications and characteristics are required. We offer custom-made sheets or finished products in a variety of hardness, thickness, dimensions and colours, made into different mixtures that can be developed for and adapted to each application.

In the search for new fields of application for our products, Cauchos Karey collaborate with universities, consultancy, engineering bureau and designers to develop new industrial products in which EVA is a fundamental component.

What we do
in Promotional Design

Due to its attractive appearance, appealing colours and light and pleasant texture, EVA is increasingly being seen as a creative, versatile and suitable raw material in a wide range of product design scopes. Examples are packaging for perfumes, watches and glasses, household products, furniture, merchandising, toys, children’s educational materials, publicity displays, etc.

EVA is presented on smooth surfaces with innovative finishes in a wide range of colours, hardnesses and thicknesses which can be easily cut, folded, screen-printed, glued or transformed in any other way necessary to create an attractive, high-quality end product.

What we do
in Animal Flooring

Expanded EVA is used in flooring for animals, either in cubicles on dairy cow farms and horse stalls, our EVA flooring system is considered the most comfortable on the market. Thanks to its structure of micro air cells, EVA is spongy and flexible, providing the animal with unbeatable comfort, insulation and protection.

We offer a wide range of mat profiles, thicknesses, dimensions manufactured in different mixtures that can be adapted to the different types of livestock facilities on the market. Together with our flooring range, we present a complete fixing and installation system for our mats using profiles and spacers, designed specifically to guarantee correct installation and preservation of the system.
