Committed to energy saving and efficiency

By | news | No Comments

In Grupo Cuñado we are committed to energy saving and efficiency, and for this reason, we have renewed the lighting of the Distribution and Quality areas in our headquarters in Alcalá de Henares. This change has improved the visual comfort of our workers, reducing up to 75% of the consumption, minimizing the generation of hazardous waste, since we stopped generating used fluorescent tubes that contain mercury, and the useful life of the LED panels installed is much longer than the fluorescent tubes.
With these measures we comply with our Environmental Policy, in which we are committed to pollution prevention and environmental protection.

New workshop on valves

By | news | No Comments

A few days ago, our colleagues from Grupo Cuñado Zaragoza and Vector Valves held a theoretical and practical workshop on valves. They reviewed the main standards applicable to valves such as API 598, API 6D, ASME B16.34, Review Certificates, Interpretation of an ITP, etc..

In addition, during their visit to the factory, they were able to see the assembly of some valves, including control valves, and how hydrostatic and functional tests were carried out.

It was a great day of training, essential for our staff to meet the most demanding needs of our customers in valve projects.

And once again, continuing our social work, we supported last Saturday an amazing day of sport, education and health, by sponsoring the XLV Cross of the San Gabriel School in Alcalá de Henares, the city where our headquarters are located. This is one of the most traditional races of the Alcala season, which started as a school cross and is now a competition for all ages, where many of our employees have run at least once. This year’s large turnout, with a total of 1,253 participants, was also able to enjoy the presence of the Transmissions Battalion of the Military Emergency Unit (BTUME)
