Molinos Agro constantly invests in the maintenance and modernization of its grinding plants and to add storage capacity, according to company sources, the long-term strategic vision will continue to focus on these guidelines.

Finally, Pecom, the services, construction and products company for gas, oil, mining and electrical energy, which employs 8,500 people and invoices about US$800 million per year, will seek to continue exploring new business opportunities as it has been doing in recent years. Within this framework, its intention to operate some of the areas that YPF put up for public offering stands out.
