The Navarre-based company, with more than 60 years of experience in the industrial sector, has been a key player in the wind energy sector since 1990. Its decision is conditioned by the strategic importance that the Asian giant has acquired for the renewable energy sector, which has led its main companies (Nordex, Siemens Gamesa, Vestas and Enercon, among others) to set up there along with their entire associated supply chain. In the case of Industrial Barranquesa, it will also mean the incorporation of Rajeev Okhlandiar as the new general manager of the Indian delegation to lead the implementation and start-up process of its new work centre.

In the case of Industrial Barranquesa, its landing in India represents “a significant step” in its international expansion, its managers confirmed. Therefore, Rajeev Okhlandiar will be incorporated as the new general manager of the Indian delegation while its current project manager of the Pamplona plant, Mikel Arzallus, will be in charge of supervising the implementation of the production processes in the new facility located in the Greenbase industrial park in Chennai.

Since then, the Navarrese company has undergone a profound transformation since its beginnings. At that time, its speciality was metal transformation (cutting, welding, deformation and machining). However, its commitment to the supply of tower flanges for the wind industry from 1990 onwards made it what it is today: one of the world’s leading suppliers of tower flanges and bolt cages for wind turbines.

In addition, between 2015 and 2019, the company made significant investments in plant and machinery, thereby increasing its capacity by 50 %. This period also coincided with an initial 1,700 square metre expansion of its headquarters, followed by the purchase of a 10,000 square metre warehouse in Pamplona to meet the growing demand for its products.

Finally, in 2023, its managers announced the start-up of a new work centre in the town of Uharte Arakil as part of a series of strategic and expansion moves that have resulted in a consolidation of its business idea and its position as a guarantee supplier to the wind industry worldwide.
