1981 sees the celebration of 25 years since the beginning of the MONDRAGON cooperatives, a symbolic date on which to take stock:
Caja Laboral, with 114 branches and Credit Resources totalling €383.56 million.
The industrial cooperatives exceed €498.84 million.
The cooperative Eroski, with a growth of 38%, stands at around €90 million.
And 1985 sees the constitution of the Council of Groups of the cooperatives, the historic embryo of today’s MONDRAGON.
And on 1 January 1986, the Treaty of Accession of Spain to the European Communities enters into force.
