Cros Old Factory

Cros Old Factory

The chemical factory Cros, created at the beginning of the nineteenth century in Cataluña, was extrordinarily expanded during the First World War, opening new industrial settlements on several Spanish cities. In the case of O Burgo (Culleredo), near the river of the same name, in 1931 a superphosphate factory for its use as fertilizer was built. Its productive orientation would change with time, always orientated predominantly towards a regional market, and at the end of the 80s with the creation of Ercros, S.A. (born from the union of the Sociedad Anónima de Cros and the Unión de Explosivos Río Tinto), these facilities were abandoned, and a great deal of them have been demolished, excepting two great buildings that have been recently intervened in order to preserve the structural elements.
