Zitrón commences operations
Zitrón is founded in the coastal city of Gijón in Asturias, a province in north western Spain with a long history of mining. The company focuses on the design and manufacture of a diverse range of equipment, including fans, locomotives and diffusers, for the local mining industry.
Global expansion picks up pace
Zitrón’s global reach grows with the establishment of a subsidiary in Canada, the consolidation of its South African operations and the approval for the construction of a new manufacturing centre in Australia. The company’s footprint expands to cover over 80 countries on 5 continents.
