In 1955, Mr Juan Muntaner Cañellas founded the company called Pompas Fúnebres Muntaner in the towns of Capdepera and Cala Rajada, which provided funeral services and exclusive funeral insurance. It is the oldest funeral company in the eastern region and one of the oldest on the Island of Mallorca.
With the passage of time, the company was passed on from father to son and that is when Antonio Juan Muntaner Pomar becomes head of the society.
In 1989, the company acquired the Artà funeral home, run by Mr Antoni Ginard Cantó and began providing services in the two neighbouring municipalities, as a result of which, the number of employees increased.
In October 1994, Pompas Fúnebres Muntaner became Grup Muntaner Ribot, S.L. thus continuing the family business.
A year later, with a public deed of corporate agreements, the management of public and/or private cemeteries and providing administrative, burial, exhumation, and maintenance services was added to the services offered.
In 1999, through a public tender and in plenary session in the City of Artà, Grup Muntaner Ribot S.L. was awarded the funeral services, maintenance, and management of the cemeteries in the Municipalities of Artá and Colònia de Sant Pere. Six months later we are awarded the concession once again, which remains to this day.
It is now ten years that we have been providing funeral services in the Municipality of Son Servera and collaborating selflessly with the City council in the burials and exhumations in the Municipal Cemetery. In March 2011, the concession was fully approved as well as the management and maintenance of the Municipal Cemetery of Son Servera, being awarded us through public tender.
During this time, the company has been evolving and growing and is now present in three municipalities in the eastern region of Mallorca. The experience has taught us about the funeral customs of each locality as well as cultural differences due to the significant percentage of foreign residents in these municipalities. This has allowed for the continuity of a family nature as a third generation is integrated.
Specifically, at Grup Muntaner Ribot we are committed to:
