Over the past 50 years Norte has built all kinds of projects: public and private constructions, hotels, large commercial areas, restaurants, petrol stations, among others.
"We have to assume the highest level of responsibility. You cannot delegate, then worry about those things and see that they are carried out. We have to use good materials, work with good contractors, and have a good project. You have to be present".
"It was important to reject projects that we felt we would be unable to implement properly. We preferred to say no. It is important to know when to say 'no'. This implies responsibility because we know we will be unable to do things correctly".
"The founders conveyed the importance of the concept of ‘effort’ as a value. They are austere, they do not squander because it cost them a lot to achieve this. We view their sacrifice as an example".
"The company must provide the corresponding safety elements and ensure that people use them properly. Yet our task does not finish there: we must provide training, training and training".
"Both of the founders are very hard workers, they are true examples. I admire their personality, their professionalism, values, transparency, and their correct manners. Norte has become what it is, thanks to how conservative they were at the time and the low-key attitude they have always had".
"Being a family-owned enterprise marks a difference considering the type of construction projects carried out by Norte. Our clients know that we are not there to do things badly and then disappear. We have a long history to back us up".
"People sometimes don’t realise how big a sacrifice the owner of a company has to make to keep things going. This is no easy task. In addition to their honesty, one of the things I like to highlight about Tito and Patricio is their effort to keep the business going. Even until this day they take great pains to keep the team together and they look after the employees. They taught me to have a long-term view".
“THE PROJECTS THEY BUILT OVER THE PAST 50 YEARS, WITH THE SEA AS AN ALLY, ARE FAR MORE THAN THE MERE HISTORY OF A BUSINESS, THEY ARE, ABOVE ALL, A FAMILY HISTORY”
