During the year work was carried out to update the whole health and mutual benefit system, with the setting up of the Mutual Benefit Service in the new structure known as Lagun Aro, based on changes recommended by experience and developments in social legislation applied generally in the area of Social Security.
It was in 1967 that Lagun Aro’s current system was practically established, although the Mutual Benefit Service was still part of Caja Laboral.
The same year Impreci became a member, and has now merged with the Fagor Ederlan co-operative.
Over the year the total cooperative workforce increased by 17.6% and sales rose by 22.4%.
