At the end of the 70s, Cementos Molins Group had started the path to internationalisation, with the participation of companies in Argentina, Mexico, etc. turning itself into the parent company of a large group of international companies.
In the 80s, it was the turn of diversification, cement started to share sales ranking with other products: concrete, precasts, mortars, etc.
The investments of Cementos Molins Group in the concrete and aggregate sector were carried out through the company PROMSA. In 1988 this company was entirely owned (100%) by Cementos Molins, it increased the capital allowing the entrance of SOMACO, a subsidiary of Societé de Cementos Français, with a 50% share. At that moment PROMSA carried out significant investments in Catalonia, Andalusia, Castile and the north of Spain in the sector of ready-mixed concrete, concrete precasts and the preparation of aggregate through around 50 subsidiaries.
At the beginning of the 90s, PROMSA was one of the first Spanish companies of that sector.
In 1992, Cemento Français was taken over by Italcementi Group, and after an agreement, PROMSA concentrated its assets in Catalonia. It was in 1993 when Cementos Molins Group acquired all the shares. The subsidiaries of PROMSA came under direct control of Cementos Molins. This was the case of Promotora Mediterránea-2 SA, Hormigones de Calidad, SA and Prefabricaciones y Contratas, SA (PRECON), the first two in the business of Concrete and aggregate in Catalonia and in the central area, respectively.
PROMSA continued in the concrete business, reinforced as well by aggregates, and initiated a process of integration of all the subsidiaries through several merges, until all the activities ended up included in the company Promotora Mediterránea-2, SA.
It was in 2001 when it started working with other construction materials such as mortar by building and innovative and efficient factory for the production of mortar in the facilities of La Falconera quarry, in Garraf (Sitges).
Since then, PROMSA and its subsidiaries, being coherent with the values of the circular economy, have created an Environmental line that includes waste recovery, both in the energy section and in the reuse and creation of the product line PROMSA GREEN, which includes recycled raw materials that improve the properties of the final products.
