The company is built

The company known as CUPA PIZARRAS is founded and built in 1968. Becoming world leaders in the production and commercialisation of slate is part of the founding DNA of CUPA PIZARRAS.

Since its creation, the company has centred its efforts on finding new slate deposits and to explore and develop new production techniques to satisfy the growing demand of each country and each client.

During all these years, the production quota has been met with the opening of new quarries which have rapidly allowed CUPA to be the leader in its field.
