60 years of history. The journey goes on.

60 years of history in Ecrimesa Group. Ready to keep moving forward.

Where we come from?


Technical knowledge and foresight

Ecrimesa was created by Cantabrian entrepreneurs with extensive industrial experience, some of whom were experts in investment casting technology, due to their background in the jewellery sector. Considering the rapid expansion of Spain's automotive industry, they spotted a unique opportunity in steel part manufacturing.

D. Santiago Bannatyne Presmanes, Gonzalo García Rumayor, Andrés Peral Zorrilla and Fernando María Pereda Aparicio, together with other shareholders, founded Ecrimesa with the aim of adapting the investment casting technology to the steel sector.


Entrepreneurship and dynamism

1964 marks the official start of Ecrimesa with a land concession on Avenida de Parayas and a strategic partnership with Societé Des Forges et Ateliers de Creusot, which licenses the transfer of know-how for the manufacture of steel parts by investment casting.


Leadership in service

The first major milestone was the development of a part for the rocker arms of FASA RENAULT engines, enabling the company to take off with the mass production of automotive components, which continued to be manufactured until the end of the 1970s.
