Company background

After many years of being working together for a large pharmaceutical company in the island, Eng. Luis A. Ocasio and Eng. Luis E. Ramirez decided to start their own company. They joined their capacity and knowledge in order to start ALPROEM. They did not have the necessary economic resources to start the company, but a great deal of desire to succeed made the difference in this new stage of their lives.

The first company they opened was ALPROEM Engineering Services PSC which provides consulting services on Energy and Project Management. A year later, they opened ALPROEM Engineering Contractors Corp. to offer construction services for the Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Medical Devices, Aerospace and other manufacturing plants.

The company has grown significantly due to the commitment of all their employees; who are their most valuable asset. ALPROEM perceives the future very optimistic because they have established strong foundations on their culture, values and organization.

Management Team

Corporate Social Responsibility

Our values embody the importance of social responsibility as a means to connect with the communities we do business with. We truly believe that no business can be fully successful if there is no return to society.

Examples of our Corporate Social Responsibility

  1. “Hogar Forjadores de Esperanza” (residence for boys from 10-18 years who have being physically and/or emotionally abused) - we adopted this nonprofit organization and all our employees and management perform a monthly donation to it. We also sponsor special activities for HFE such as the summer working program at our offices and special trips, among others.

  2. Sports Funds - we have established a sports fund to support different sports activities in which our employees’ sons and daughters participate. It is our strong belief that involvement with sports now will create better leaders for our future society.

  3. Fundación Dr. Carlos López Somolinos” (foundation that provides scholarships to social and economically disadvantaged boys and girls) - we actively participate on the Board of Directors and also sponsor scholarships for this nonprofit organization.
