At Recal we are defined by our positive approach.
Our philosophy centers on a can-do attitude. This positive approach to our work defines us. It has driven our efforts on countless industrial sites, flagship buildings, and highly specialized projects in diverse locations worldwide.
RECAL ACEROS (Aceros Corey) was founded in Guadalajara, Jalisco, as a steel service center for the construction and metal-mechanic industry.
We began to participate in structural steel fabrication projects.
One of our first challenges in the structural steel industry was a project for the CFE (Comision Federal de Electricidad) in Rosarito, Baja California. It helped us realize our potential when it consisted of fabricating 4,400 tons at a time, when our annual capacity was at 1,300 tons.
Our participation in the Nissan Aguascalientes project helped us grow when it requiered us to increase our annual capacity to 8,800 tons.
We acquired our first CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) machine.
Due to the Mexican economic crisis of 1994, we began to look for new projects abroad, among them: The San Francisco International Airport, the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona and industrial mining company Aluar in Argentina. During the next few years, our annual capacity increased to 20,000 tons.
We obtained a building fabricator certification and complex coatings endorsement by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), becoming the first and only company in Mexico and Latin America with this credential.
We started operations at our Monterrey, N.L. facilities, increasing our annual capacity to 30,000 tons.
We expanded our AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) certification to the highest category available in our industry which corresponds to advanced bridge fabricators including a Fracture Critical Endorsement.
The construction of Torre Mayor is completed, a project that allowed us to become protagonists in the highrise construction sector in Mexico. This was the tallest skyscraper in the country for 8 years.
We started operations at our Mexico City facilities.
We opened new facilities in El Salto, Jalisco on a 3,000,000 sq. ft. area, quadrupling our capacity in our home state, which allowed us to centralize operations. Total annual capacity increased to 45,000 tons.
Through an international licitation we began to work on the Torre BBVA project. The largest steel project in Mexico City at 25,000 tons.
The assembly of the structure for Puente el Baluarte was concluded, and was named the tallest cable-stayed bridge in the world that year.
We began Hudson Yards Tower A a 50,000 short tons project located in New York City, USA. This opened the doors to world-class projects in the United States. In that year, our annual capacity was 83,000 tons.
We reached the milestone of 1,000,000 metric tons (1,102,500 tons) of fabricated structural steel in the history of our company.
We completed the construction of the Torre Reforma project, which was awarded the International Highrise Award 2018 in Germany as the most innovative building in the world.
We reached the milestone of 100,000 metric tons (110,250 tons) of structure manufactured for the US market. That year our annual capacity grew to 110,250 tons.
We started operations at our new paint shop facility with unique shot blasting equipment for steel cleaning.
