With the advent of the industrial revolution, the production of iron and steel on a large scale, became a pressing need, thus the large steel industries were born, industrial development spread very quickly reaching America. The inherent needs of the development of our country demanded an appropriate response to the demand of the construction industry, in this way ANDEC, Acerías Nacionales del Ecuador, established in 1964, provided the country with the ingredient that has enabled an important boost to the development of the National Steel Industry. Initially, the plant had 150 workers whom it had to train in the handling of a rolling mill, the same one that worked until the 1980s.

This train produced for 1,970, about 11,250 tons. This initial production was enough to cover 20% of the total demand nationwide. By the mid-1980s, the company had already diversified its production, thanks to the acquisition of a rolling mill that made it possible to produce coils of wire rod smaller than 10mm. At the same time, July 1984, the Army Industries Directorate (DINE) acquired most of the share package with the vision of modernizing the industrial plant, optimizing resources, increasing production and increasing its market share.

However, the biggest challenge was yet to come: "The ISO 9000 certification process", in 1997. It was a pioneering decision, for a time when very few Ecuadorian industries considered it necessary. The implementation of state-of-the-art technology increased production, and with the incorporation of new procedures in Quality Management, ANDEC achieved ISO 9002 Certification on February 22, 2001. To continue with this process, on July 31, 2003 , the company achieved ISO 9001: 2000 Certification and has currently completed its certification process for the SGI Integrated Management System, incorporating the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards into its quality system.

In 2004, ANDEC SA incorporated its subsidiary FUNASA, as a division in charge of the collection, processing and recycling of ferrous scrap, for the manufacture of steel billet, a semi-processed material that serves as the basis for the rolling of long products, an activity that has been developing for 34 years, having processed more than 2 million tons of scrap to date, making a significant contribution to the environment, highlighting ANDEC SA's commitment as a Socially Responsible Company.
