Efficiency and quality demonstrated
The Ramón Peña Industrial Company, located near the Guanabacoa traffic circle in Havana province, constitutes a current example of efficiency and quality for having developed a wide range of products that have replaced a high value of imports into the country.
Belonging to the Business Group of the Steelworking Industry (GESIME), this organization was historically linked to the production of transportation equipment for industry, since its predecessor dates back to 1950, the then private Construction Company of Mechanical Equipment. It has specialized in the manufacture of collectors, compactors, dump beds, platform beds, trailers, semitrailers, among other products, since the revolutionary triumph of January 1959.
But its history does not end in that year because it began operating in 2012 as Ramón Peña, after the merger of Construction Company of Mechanical Equipment (CEM) and the Guanabo Industrial Company
Then in 2018 the UEB (Business Unit) IMECA (Industria Mecánica Caribe) was incuded, better known as the “Trailer Factory”, thus increasing its productive experience. All this made it possible to expand its portfolio with the manufacture of trailers, semi-trailer trucks or both independently, parts, pieces and components for transportation equipment, applications on chassis, cabs, trucks and vans, gears and mechanized spare parts. Ramón Peña is currently growing its product line and, following the country’s new economic policy, has begun to venture into producing equipment for agriculture, construction and other sectors in demand where its technology can function with the required quality.
In an interview with CubaPLUS Magazine, the company’s General Director, Eng. Lourdes Esther Torres Ferrer, said that in order to meet its objectives, “The company has qualified personnel, whose knowledge and experience is used to conceive and manufacture vital devices for the agricultural and industrial development of the largest of the Antilles. The talent of its workforce, the work capacity and technological discipline are qualities possessed by Cuban industry.”
“Our products,” she added, “play a fundamental role in different sectors of the economy. We repair and manufacture trailers and semi-trailers of different capacities (from two to sixty tons) that constitute our principle line of production. In addition, we develop equipment and applications for the sugar harvest and rice harvest, as well as for communal sanitation in the country’s capital and other provinces.”
This year, the company concluded an investment process through which it modernized and expanded its technological capabilities, which has placed it at the forefront in the country in cutting, forming, welding and painting processes.
It is currently working with a form of foreign investment: an economic-international association with a foreign supplier that will promote the development of technological equipment, personnel training and the strengthening of export capacity through partnerships with third parties.
All these steps make it possible to maintain the status of leaders in this type of production, while increasing the business portfolio.
“We can affirm that our main objective is to always satisfy our client’s needs, through high quality products, a high competitive level, efficient organization and high productivity that allows us to substitute imports,” concluded Eng. Lourdes Esther Torres Ferrer.
