Part of Cupa Group
Cupa Group is one of the biggest groups in production and distribution of construction materials in the world. It is the leading company of the production of natural slate in the international market and has become a benchmark in Europe when talking about natural rock distribution.
The inauguration of Solana de Forcadas quarry, in San Pedro de Trones (León), in 1892 marked the beginning of the activity of Cupa Group. This slate deposit was the company’s first asset. The company was later founded in 1968 thanks to five business owners who decided to modernise the sector and also to satisfy the international demand.
