Alecosa is a family business that was born in 1984 but that comes from a long tradition in the transformation of precious metals, an activity started in 1910 and that evolved in 1967 in the manufacture of brass wires.
La Fundición Anglo-Española Alberto de Torner introduced continuous casting in Spain and was the pioneer in Europe in the manufacture of brass by this process. The homogeneity and quality of its brasses allowed it, starting from scratch, to position itself as the leader of the national market. In this context, the company becomes Torner y CIA, S.L.
The investments made to meet the new challenge posed by Spain’s entry into the European Union transformed it into the current Aleados del Cobre S.A. The constant growth of Alecosa was possible thanks to a higher reliability of its wires compared to the usual extruded ones.
Alecosa has always based the homogeneity of its products on a quality management system on the satisfaction of its customers. The investments and its R&D projects since 1990 have focused on three key points: efficiently satisfy our clients, continue to produce in Spain and also do so with environmentally sustainable processes.
The continuous expansion that Alecosa has been maintaining in all the markets related to brass wire shows that Alecosa’s vision has been fully shared by its collaborators.
The new facilities inaugurated in 2005 are a starting point towards a permanent search for industrial and environmental efficiency that can guarantee the present and future needs of our clients.
