Resa Group has committed to a new subsidiary in the Mariel Special Development Zone (ZEDM) in Cuba. Surrounding our own area of 3000 m2 dedicated to factory, offices and warehouse, the ZEDM is one of the principal endeavours by Cuba to boost its economy by capturing foreign investment, generating employment and encouraging exports.
Following approval by the Cuban cabinet, Resa Caribe was founded and registered in January 2018 as a Cuban subsidiary and 100% foreign-owned company. Its corporate purpose is the “Manufacture and sale of multidimensional and electrical scaffolding, providing scaffolding hire, assembly and removal services, as well as access engineering, industrial and building maintenance services”.
Resa intends to incorporate its usual portfolio of services, as well as to add new ones, mainly in the mining sector.
The objective is to meet the urgent needs and demands of the multinationals recently arrived in the zone, who are committed to major investment in the country now and over the next few years. It is likewise intended to cover the entire Caribbean area from the Mariel base, once installation in Cuba is complete.
Resa Group has already acquired experience in Cuba with its work at the Castellanos Mine, where in 2017 it participated in excavating the mine itself, located in Santa Lucía. Resa Group furnished 600 tonnes of Resablok material and a team with extensive experience in the supervision and assembly of scaffolding.
