ALFONSO JIMÉNEZ RODRÍGUEZ-VILA
Alfonso Jiménez is a “cradle” entrepreneur. When he was just 20 years old, he set up his first company, Cascajares, which today has a turnover of 15 million euros and directly employs almost 100 people in its two locations, one in Spain and the other in Canada. On the verge of celebrating three decades, his company was hit by the fire that completely destroyed his factory in Dueñas in the early hours of January 26th. Demonstrating incredible resilience, the new Cascajares is already being built and will be up and running in a few months, stronger than ever.
