About the company
Starting business in 1969, Tomás Castro Silva created the brand RICO in 1976
Initially with the manufacture of calenders and drilling machines, it decided to expand the range of products from 1979, the year in which it built the first hydraulic press brake. Later on, it produced the first guillotine shears in 1982, year in which it started the export activity in a sustained way.
Result of a sustainable strategy, RICO continues today to be a company with family roots that values quality, innovation, proximity and partnership with customers.
In a constantly evolving world, RICO keeps up with the latest technological developments by developing and manufacturing its products internally from scratch.
