INNERGY TURNS FIFTY
Doyen of the solutions sector for heat generation and application in Spain under the brand ERATIC, this significant anniversary takes place at the height of its sales and with the highest level of international visibility in its history.
Empresas Reunidas Asistencia Técnica Industrial y Comercial (ERATIC) was founded in 1968 and was a pioneer in its day in Spain’s industrial thermal oil boilers sector. With David Moldes Fariñas at the helm and a young but experienced team of professionals, in a few years, ERATIC would position itself as the leading company in its segment, and a reference at the technological forefront of the industrial heat transmission sector.
The history of ERATIC, which in 2012 became part of the holding company INNERGY and changed its name to INNERGY HEAVY INDUSTRIES, has always been shaped by the vision and entrepreneurial spirit of the first founding generation of professionals and which have been transformed into the values and standards of the company, such as: the development of technologies that bring the client added value; a full commitment to service; and a long-term approach towards the strategy and decisions of new generations. This ongoing quest for improvement has driven the company’s expansion into international markets as diverse and demanding as Chile, Argentina and Japan.
INNERGY, which today is a group with approximately 200 professionals and around 5,000 projects spanning the five continents, has its head engineering and production centre in Quart de Poblet (Valencia), as well as subsidiary companies in Chile (INNERSUD), Argentina (ERATIC Sudamericana) and Japan (INNERGY JAPAN). These, in addition to an extensive network of partners in over 15 countries enabled 70% of its turnover in the past year to be generated outside Spain.
The three main lines of business, divided into independent companies, cover a wide range of fields of activity. In the electrical engineering sector, INNERGY ELECTRIC develops the design, manufacturing and integration of switchboards, as well as SCADA control and monitoring systems, through the integrated management of electrical projects.
For turnkey solutions under the EPC or ESCO formats, INNERGY ENGINEERING offers integrated solutions for generation and/ or cogeneration processes, enabling industries to bring down the costs of their productive processes and be more competitive, in addition to reducing their impact through environmentally-friendly solutions.
In the capital goods sector, INNERGY HEAVY INDUSTRIES has positioned the ERATIC brand as a reference in the industrial boilers segment, both due to the durability and quality of its products (some 1960s and 1970s units are still in commission). The company has developed and introduced onto the market different technologies that have allowed the entire sector to evolve: from manufacturers of industrial boilers powered by petroleum derivatives to the use of biomass and the energy recovery of by-products. It is currently spearheading the new 4.0 revolution towards total process control and its integration with the rest of the digital industry.
