HISTORY

IT ALL BEGAN WITH THE "J. RAMÍREZ CASALDERREY" CARPENTRY WORKSHOP IN 1928

Although it formally came into being in 2001, in order to understand the true origins of the JRU GROUP, we would need to go all the way back to 1928, to the establishment of "J. RAMÍREZ CASALDERREY'S" carpentry workshop. It brought a handful of top artisans together to focus on transforming and applying wood. In 1961, under the leadership of Juan Ramírez Piñeiro, then JRU Group president, it expanded its scope in the construction sector, which meant relying more heavily on machinery and applying new technologies in order to meet the needs of an increasingly diversified and sophisticated sector. This dream became a reality with its establishment as a company that provides a comprehensive range of construction services.

In 1978, our company, DECORACION, INSTALACIONES Y CONSTRUCCIONES, S.A., known as DICSA—which would later spawn the JRU GROUP—was founded.

In order to create a newer, more dynamic organisation, DICSA underwent a massive restructuring that gave rise to the JRU Group. Each of its strategic lines of business go through highly specialised companies, thereby enabling it to provide a more timely and effective response. Thus, we continue to honour the artisan tradition that has always defined us as capable of providing original and unique solutions to each problem that arises. Our operations can be divided into three overarching areas of expertise, all aimed at offering a professional and effective and thorough response to each project.

Our restructuring has enabled us to take advantage of existing synergies to generate a steady stream of income. This has enabled us to take on broader projects, have a presence in virtually all segments of the real estate market, and begin a new, more ambitious chapter in our business history, one where we are prepared to tackle future obstacles, including a selective shift to the international market, based on the criteria of prudence, organisational discipline and financial safety, the cornerstones of our companies.

LINES OF BUSINESS

OUR ACTIVITY CAN CURRENTLY BE BROKEN DOWN INTO THREE CATEGORIES

CONSTRUCTION is assigned to DICSA and covers anything from New Construction to Civil Engineer and Rehabilitation. The latter is of particular note, as we have become a point of reference in the sphere of rehabilitation of the so-called "Heritage of Cultural Interest". DICSA MADRID is in charge of all remodelling and outfitting of business establishments, especially those intended for use as banking offices; DICSA ELECTRICIDAD in responsible for all electrical installations.

The REAL ESTATE branch is in charge of promotion projects that are completed through both our own companies, like PLANIN and PORTOLYS, as well as numerous affiliates. In this sector, PLANIN and KERIGMA INVERSIONES are responsible for managing the group's real estate property.

Diversification of the group's business activity has meant that it is not dedicated solely to the construction sector and the like. Rather, the JRU Group has extended its lines of action to the ENERGY SECTOR through HIDROFREIXA, a hydroelectric company, as well as various other projects within the wind power sector.
