About us

Welcome to JC Navalips!

We are a global Leader in the manufacture of highest quality requirement Ni-Al Bronze products.

Originally founded in 1974 as a joint venture between LIPS (NL) and AESA (Spain), we started our journey as Navalips S.A., specializing in the production of propellers for the maritime industry. On top of our marine propulsion expertise, we have long track record in energy sector components, from hydro power impellers to oil&gas bronze components.


In 2003, Wärtsilä acquired 50% ownership of LIPS, thereby becoming the majority stakeholder in Navalips. Two years later, in 2005, Wärtsilä purchased the remaining 50% shares, making Navalips a wholly owned subsidiary of Wärtsilä.

In 2008, our manufacturing facility in Cantabria underwent a significant expansion, effectively doubling its production capacity. This expansion not only strengthened our presence in the market but also allowed us to cater to the growing global demand for our high-quality propellers.

In 2022, Javier Cavada acquired the Wärtsilä plant, ensuring its continuity and operational excellence. Under the new ownership, the facility was renamed JC Navalips, S.L. and is developing an expansion plan. We proudly maintain a global supply agreement with Wärtsilä, leveraging their expertise and resources to continue delivering exceptional propeller solutions to our valued customers worldwide.

At JC Navalips, SL, we are committed to upholding the legacy of excellence and innovation that has been the hallmark of our company. Our experienced team of professionals, state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, and relentless focus on quality allow us to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.

We are dedicated to providing reliable, efficient, and technologically advanced propellers that contribute to the optimal performance of vessels across various industries. Whether it’s for commercial shipping, offshore operations, or naval applications, our propellers are designed to ensure superior propulsion, fuel efficiency, and reduced environmental impact.
