Arica 80 Years of Creation
The company Arica was established in 1934 by the late Yehuda Arica, as the first mosaic workshop in Israel. Arica regarded Hebrew labor as a top value and studied construction, masonry, flooring and mosaic. In 1961, Yehuda Arica and his son established the Shaham Arica factory in Ashdod as a factory for manufacturing mosaic stairs. During the following years, his sons Yoel and Ami also joined him, and the small factory became a leading factory in Israel. About 100 employees are employed across two divisions, the street furniture division and the stone division. The company holds quality standards by the Israel Standards Institute, ISO 9001, standard for marking a product with a green tag. Here at Shaham Arica, we have solutions to all out customers’ needs! We do not stop creating and developing for you.
