Cano Estructuras/Imper de Chihuahua, S.A. de C.V.

Cano Estructuras is a company from northern mexican state Chihuahua that stated operations in 1989, in response to the need to satisfy both local and statewide steel construction markets.

With almost 30 years of experience, the company has built over 4.5 million m2 and 150 thousand tons in projects in nothern and central Mexico and has now established as a reliable company with the highest quality standards.

The main objective of Cano Estructuras is to improve execution times, quality and costs through teamwork and optimization of processes and resources.

As part of this effort, our company has taken steps to provide greater satisfaction to our clients. Among them, we obtained the Firestone Building Products, Carlisle and Gaf Sarnafil license for the sale and installation of plastic membrane roofing systems. This effort led to the star of operations of Cano Roofing, a subsidiary dedicated to this service.

In the same year, Cano Estructuras acquired Joist Structural Systems, a company located in Ciudad Juarez, specialized in the manufacture of Joist and Girders certified by the Steel Joist Institute and with sales capacity within the United States of America.
