We grow along with our STRATEGIC ALLIANCES

Description CE CONSONNI

Guided by our corporate vision we have sought technical support from a company with similar goals to ours, in order to provide our customers a complete line of products focused on the control, protection and management of electrical power.

FTC Energy Group Inc. through licensing agreement with technical support rendered by CE Consonni Inc. an Spanish manufacturer of MV, LV Power Center and Motor Control Centers of B.T.

The FTC Energy Group Inc. - C.E. Consonni alliance provides a new alternative in a demanding and highly competitive market.

C.E. Consonni Inc. was founded in 1952 with headquarters in Bilbao (Spain) and has extensive global experience providing  Switchgear, Power Center Low Voltage and Low Voltage MCC's.

FTC Energy Group Inc. has implemented a policy of continuous improvement aimed at continuous development in the design of our products through our strategic alliance with CONSONNI SA, Spain.

This policy has been materialized by applying expertise of CONSONNI to projects in Colombia which has allowed us to implement solutions that meet the most ambitious and challenging projects of our most demanding customers. Thus FTC Energy Group SA is committed to the implementation of advanced technologies helping the development of the Colombian market place.

The Alliance between FTC Energy Group and C.E. Consonni Inc. provides a new alternative in a demanding and highly competitive market.

Acerca de

C.E. Consonni, Inc. Founded  in October 1952.

Since its creation the company has undergone significant expansion national and internationally, with diversified activities such as power plants, fluid control, electrical assemblies, which resulted in a new branch company, named Construcciones Electromecánicas Consonni, S.A. which deals with the manufacture of electrical equipment of medium and low voltage. It also includes engineering, design, improvement, repair, installation, sales and services.

In 2007 is created an additional branch company by the name of  Constructiones Electromecanicas CE Consonni Aranda in Aranda de Duero, a facility of 1600 m2 and with all the machinery necessary for the assembly of  electrical cabinets and also specialized in handling containerized substations. CE Aranda employs 30 people. Of the more than a hundred people that Works for CONSONNI. 


La Alianza

Since January 2003 an alliance was consolidated FTC Energy Group S.A and CONSONNI decided to create synergies to serve the domestic Colombian market with products and solutions for power management with world class standards.

The search for partnerships and new ways to address an increasingly demanding and changing electrical industry impulse the design of a strategic alliance between two traditional companies in the industrial electrical market.

Through technology licensing FTC Energy Group SA Colombia offers products of high technical and quality standards based on proven technologies developed by CE CONSONNI. This process of appropriation of know-how developed over more than 50 years of expertise by CONSONNI CE allowed the transfer of technology into developing countries like Colombia so the market can have access to products and know-how imported from countries with a higher level of technological development. This will generate local alternatives to offer world-class solutions.

The development of collaborative business relationships has allowed the participation of CE CONSONNI on major projects in the Colombian market, where FTC Energy Group has implemented solutions using products developed under the criteria validated by CONSONNI production system. This relationship of mutual benefit has allowed the consolidation of another great synergy between Colombia-Spain. Through the three consecutive periods ratification of this agreement both companies agreed on how the goal have been met and the proposed synergies have been achieved which ensures the future availability  European technologies in the field of electromechanical engineering in the Colombian market.
