The foundation of the JOAL company dates to 1949 (started by JOsé Boronat Bernabeu and ALejandro Beltrá), at which time they made both small metal toys and locksmith accessories. This second activity was short lived and JOAL has concentrated on toys ever since.
Like a lot of diecast car makers, they started by making other small items including sewing machines and toy guns.
During 60's and 70's JOAL started to specialize in scale metal miniatures of cars and public works equipment, and more recently a line of trucks.
Until 2015, JOAL had about 55 employees at their 130,000 square foot, state of the art factory in Spain. Where they manufactured models of such brands as Volvo, JCB, Paus, Manitou, Komatsu, Caterpillar and Liebherr.
Joal ceased production in 2015.
