Pretenorte builds a new plant in Betoño and continues its investment and specialisation plan in the railway sector

Pretensados del Norte (Pretenorte) continues its specialisation in the railway sector. Specifically, in the manufacture of Prestressed Steel for railway sleepers. As Íñigo Quincoces, Director General of the company admits, this commitment to specialisation required “important changes and the adaptation of the entire organisation, demanding significant growth in industrial and engineering capacity.” All this is part of the company’s investment plan, channelled through an investment plan of more than seven million euros.

The project involves at the current stage raising its production capacity from 9,000 tons / year to more than 26,000 and almost doubling the workforce, to about 60 workers. This increase in manufacturing will be possible thanks to the construction of a new plant in Betoño, near its headquarters, with 5,000 m2 of surface, which will be dedicated exclusively to manufacturing and laboratory.

This second plant is already built and in the process of installing machinery to begin production on 15th July.
