A Little History

Background

On the 8th April 1986 Javier Cumplido founded Teinsa with the object of the undertaking of all type of facilities for the collection and distribution of energy for heating, air-conditioning, ventilation, plumbing and refrigeration by means of fluids.

First Steps

The company began with four workers in a warehouse in  Avenida de Burgos and an office in Ciriaco Garrido Road,  Logroño. One of its first projects was the extension of the International Automotive Component Group, S.L.(Opel) as well as diverse works for COBEMASA, a construction company in Nájera, and collaborations with INAR Engineering of Logroño. After years on, they continue as clients.

The Consolidation

Over the first ten years of the company, we achieved consolidation and overcame that difficult barrier of assuring certain economic stability while at the same time generating a broad asset base.

A later milestone in the firm's growth was the purchase of Victoriano Martínez, a company in existence for over 80 years, engaged in the completion and maintenance of all types of industrial installations, steam, thermal oil, compressed air, winery piping systems, plumbing, heating by different systems, radiator panels and hot air systems.

The purchase of this company allowed us to embark on installations in these fields, as it allowed the acquisition of experience otherwise difficult to obtain in the marketplace. A later acquisition was that of the company Riomansa, engaged in industrial installations, primarily in the maintenance of heating and cooling equipment and boasting a wide portfolio in maintenance in the residential sector, thereby completing a company mix which, once reorganised and relocated, was made up of Teinsa, as parent company, and Victoriano Martínez Riomansa (Vimansa), in which Teinsa has a 100% participation.

Currently the facilities cover a surface area of some 3,800 m2.

This background has enabled us to undertake a large quantity of installations of an outstanding nature, both in industrial and residential fields or in the field of public facilities. The long list of projects completed over these years defines the high quality of resources, both human and material resources, which Tiensa puts into play and which bear witness to the solvency and technical capacity of our company, having achieved those goals set way back on the 8th of April, 1986.

At this moment Teinsa boasts three important differentiating factors with respect to other large companies in the sector; namely, a high degree of specialisation, including our patents, a large working team with permanent employees and, thanks to these two qualities, the ability to assemble an installation, in its entirety, with our own personnel, which in turn offers a further advantage in terms of subsequent maintenance.  

Advancing Towards the Future

Once our goals had been achieved, our company embarked on a new venture which was the result of our founder's concern for the environment. In 2001, we began the incorporation of solar energy into all installations designed, both for the production of hot water for sanitary uses and for heating.

We have undertaken large-scale investments and activities in research in the field of thermal solar energy in order to expand technologies into all levels for work with solar energy, not only for producing domestic hot water but also to achieve the target of a 50% substitution in heating and 90% in cooling of total consumption in all types of heating and cooling installations. Teinsa's development of these technologies over the years, as can be seen through our patents and research projects undertaken, allows us to state that we currently have available the necessary knowledge to make great advances in thermal solar energy, both in its utilization for heat in winter and for solar cooling by absorption in summer, thereby assuring that by means of the implementation of various systems currently available worldwide, we might obtain an elimination of CO2 emissions estimated at 5 million tons per year; a figure that would allow us in a few years, those years required to spread these technologies on a worldwide basis, to reach objectives set by the Kyoto Protocol.
