This chapter discusses the development of private enterprises by Eduardo in Spain. In 1957 and 1958, Eduardo's new empire at Villaverde was still expanding. The covered area would soon be about 10,000 square yards. By 1960, the fábrica covered 80,000 square yards. The buildings were still primitive, being little more than a collection of twenty sheds established on prefabricated cement blocks. There were, though, several dining rooms, for both workers and executives, the executive's refectory being open from ten in the morning, ready to serve excellent breakfasts. In addition to the sheds where the serious industrial work was carried on, there were others for the administration and the sales organization. Two sheds housed the offices of the engineers, as well as quarters for draughtsmen.
