Who We Are
The Establishment of Talleres Muñiz
In 1970 and after being in several positions of responsibility in the main Asturian sectors (mining, power, construction and iron & steel), Mining Technical Engineer Manuel Álvarez Muñiz took on a mission to establish a company for the development of metal constructions.
He built a 900 m² industrial unit on a 3,000 m² plot of land in the municipality of Carreño, near the iron & steel installations of company ENSIDESA (currently Arcelor-Mittal) and started his activities in the sector, TALLERES MUÑIZ S.L. was thus created.
As a result of production requirements and the workload demanded by our clients, our installations were extended in 1995 with the construction of another 800 m² unit back-to-back with that already in existence, our installations therefore making up a total of 1,600 m².
The name of the company was also changed that year, going on to become CONSTRUCCIONES METALICAS MUÑIZ HERMANOS S.L.
The Activity of the Company
Our main activities at the start of the business were metal carpentry and the manufacture of spare parts for the iron & steel industry.
Gradually while always taking into account our clients’ requirements, by including new human and technical means we have been broadening our field of action by adding metal structures, capital goods, pressure vessels, heavy boilermaking and industrial pipes, with the introduction of our production in the main industrial sectors, with a growth in our client base from that just in our region to that in other regions and, finally, other countries.
From the manufacturing point of view, we perform all kinds of cutting, drilling, cramp-folding, bending, reinforcing and welding work, using the widest range of base materials (carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium, nickel-based alloys, etc.). Similarly, we perform welding part surfacing (stainless, wear-resistant, etc.).
- Cutting work
- Reinforcing and welding
- Carbon steel
- Stainless steel
- Nickel-based alloys
Continuous improvement regarding our production processes is intended, for this applying the latest methodologies such as the PDCA (Deming) cycle, Ishikawa Diagrams or Six Sigma.
The following certifications are the result of the effort we make in ensuring our quality processes:
Established in 2008 in the city of Los Angeles, region V of Chile, the fully owned new company called Construcciones Metalicas Asturianas Spa (COASTUR), signed a $2,500,000 contract to manufacture piping in various diameters for the different mini-power plants company ENERTRON is building in this Andean country.
The installations are made up by two industrial units with a span of 22 metres and a length of 100 and 80 metres respective, to obtain a total size of 4,000 m² equipped with a 3 x 15 metre plasma/oxycutting table, two submerged arc welding columns, a bending roller, a cramp-folding machine and a shot-blasting cabin, together with compressors for the painting area.
