In the year 1918, a family business dedicated to motor windings and electrical installations was founded in the Poble Nou district of Barcelona. The entrepreneurial spirit of the partners, Mr. Ramon Gasch and Mr. Albert Segarra, left its mark on the character of the company, which in 1985 became the public limited company SURIS S.A. The main objective was project development, the supply and installation of all types of electrical systems, not only industrial but also for construction, and to carry out electrical installations in hotels, office buildings and businesses etc.
In the eighties, the company enjoyed a period of significant growth, with a considerable number of staff and an important increase in their client portfolio. Initially focussed on the electrical sector (lines, substations, lighting and installations), they soon broadened their activities to include telecommunications, air conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems, automation and management of industrial processes and energy efficiency.
SURIS is a company with an international calling. The headquarters are based in Barcelona but work with a comprehensive network of affiliated companies throughout the world. SURIS has largely focussed on working in Europe, Latin America and Africa and in different operational centres across the continents.
In summary, thanks to a long history of continued growth and diversification, SURIS - with almost one hundred years of history - has transformed itself into a business group that leads the industries in all of the sectors that they are active in.
