Castiglia y León – Spain

Established in Valladolid, Spain, Lingotes Especiales SA is a company dedicated to the design, development, casting, machining and assembly of grey and ductile iron components for use mainly in automotion, electrical appliances and civil engineering. Established as a Public Limited Company on 20 July 1968, we have a purpose-built iron foundry as our flagship.

Frenos y Conjuntos S.A., our wholly-owned subsidiary, began operating in 1997 and is dedicated to the machining and assembly of Automotive components, essentially brake discs and drums, fly-wheels or pressure-plates. It also handles finishing services, coating and other additions to components destined directly towards original equipment in automotion.

Our modern facilities boast the most advanced production systems which compete on a world level, from induction furnaces capable of melting 170.000 tons p.a. to state-of-the-art finishing facilities

We also have a large-scale core-shop allowing the custom-production of state-of-the-art products and safety components, specialised in brake discs. All this takes place on our 80.000 Sqm.  area, 25.000 Sqm. covered of which are under roof where our world-class energy-efficient foundry can be found.

We also have a 15.000 m2 plant (5.500 m2 under roof) which contains the latest coating, machining and assembly production lines using cutting-edge technology. Our aim is to deliver fully-finished parts ready for assembly by OEMS.
