WHEN THERE’S A WILL, THERE’S A WAY … TWENTY YEARS AGO, A DREAM CAME TRUE. IN THE SOUTHEAST REGION OF BUENOS AIRES PROVINCE, ALEA Y CIA. S.A. WAS BORN. IT WAS FORMED BY THE MANAGEMENT OF INSUMOS Y CEREALES, THE RECENTLY DISSOLVED COMPANY ASSOCIATED TO GRUPO COMEGA, AT THAT TIME.
Alea y Cía. S.A. Alea y Cia. S.A. was launched on January 1 st. in 1994 as a grain storing company with a plant capacity of only 6,500 tonnes and as seeds seller in Quequén city. However, the demands of a market eager to consume cereals with various business destinations has led Alea to consider new products and businesses which have made it become active, dynamic, and productive.
As a pioneer in segregated wheat and rapeseed commercialization and production, Alea y Cia. S.A. develops owned and associated sowing production for commercial purposes in the domestic and foreign trade markets.
In 2010, opportunities opened up for Alea y Cia. S.A. with the first shipment. Since then, a significant quantity of specialty products, commodities and by-products have been traded.
“HAVING A CONSIDERABLE EXPERIENCE IN THE FIELD, THE COMPANY HAS IMPROVED ITS SERVICES. AS A RESULT, IT OFFERS A WIDE VARIETY OF POSSIBILITIES IN STORAGE, GRAIN CONDITIONING, COMMERCIALIZATION AND LOGISTICS FOR EACH NEED.”
However, we have increased our storage capacity by building a new plant in Bahia Blanca with a 10 mil tonne – storage amount, which is added to the 60 mil tonne – plant capacity in Quequén.
This evolution results in greater professionalization and the increase in our staff in a 70% in the last years. Besides, our six branch offices located in the hinterland of Bahia Blanca Port and Quequén Port (Bahía Blanca, Necochea, Tandil, Balcarce, Tres Arroyos and J. N. Fernández) are ready to face new challenges.
Since 2013, Alea y Cia. S.A., associated to Lartirigoyen y Cia. S.A., A & J Nari and E- Grain S.A., CHS Inc. and Cofco Agri, has become one of the investing companies in the new storage, loading and unloading terminal port – Sitio O de Quequén S.A.
THIS PROJECT, WHICH REQUIRES A 105 MILLION – DOLLAR INVESTMENT, WILL ALLOW TO INCREASE THE STORAGE CAPACITY IN 200 MIL TONNES AND IT WILL DOUBLE THE STORAGE CAPACITY IN QUEQUÉN PORT FACILITIES. PORT OPERATIONS ARE INITIALLY ESTIMATED TO INCREASE IN 2 MILL TONNES PER YEAR.
