In 2009, the Company was awarded Family-Responsible Company (FRC) status. This award is given to companies that are committed to a policy of continuously improving policies that ensure reconciliation between the professional and private lives of each of their employees.
In December 2009, IBERDROLA ENGINEERING received the Prince Philip Award for Industrial Quality and Innovation, the highest distinction that a company can receive in this area in Spain. The award was made, in the words of the jury, 'for the high levels attained in its quality, environment, risk-prevention and R&D&i management systems, all of which are clearly directed towards the continuous improvement of its products'.
Support for the Company's candidature for this award came from more than 60 institutions, businesses, partners, research organisations, certifying bodies and other organisations from both Spain and around the world. Other aspects taken into account by the jury were the initiatives launched by the company in areas such as training, respect for the environment and the company's classification as a Family Responsible Company (FRC).
IBERDROLA Engineering & Construction was formed as a limited company at the end of 1994 as the result of the integrated merger of the engineering skills and resources belonging to IBERDROLA and the companies UITESA (Technological Specialists) and IBERSAIC (the Environment) and holdings in Gibbs and Hill Española (GHESA) and Empresarios Agrupados. This union gave rise to a team with high levels of training and extensive experience in all areas of engineering and consultancy work, covering the entire life cycle of a project from the basic design stages through to physical execution, including 'turnkey' facilities.
IBERDROLA Engineering & Construction was created to offer the technical skills developed for IBERDROLA's projects in the general marketplace while at the same time continuing to provide services for its parent company. From the outset, IBERDROLA Engineering & Construction has been the centre of all the IBERDROLA Group's engineering and construction work, and it has become the Group's technological core and the subsidiary that develops all the necessary skills in this area.
IBERDROLA Engineering & Construction was originally established with a workforce of around 200 people, and in its first year the Company obtained a turnover of about 1 billion pesetas. It has obtained positive results from the very beginning.
On 21 July 2005, the Company's original name, 'IBERDROLA Ingeniería y Consultoría' (Iberinco), was changed to 'IBERDROLA Ingeniería y Construcción S.A.U.', a name that reflects the change of focus to a business area that is now entirely directed towards engineering and construction.
We are currently the leader in electricity generation, transport, distribution and control facilities, thanks to the commitment of a team of more than 2,300 people.
Our Company has its very own culture, with features that set it apart from others and which, at the same time, have propelled it to the very top of its sector.
IBERDROLA Engineering & Construction's CULTURE is based on a common commitment of employees in order to achieve excellence.
