When Alejandro and Miguel Alarcón, a twin of 54, took over the safe building business from their father in 1995, they didn’t initially plan to make the business more environmentally friendly. They did want to innovate the design: “We wanted to make something different, design a lighter safe.” Their father, a fine mechanics engineer, had founded Surimax in 1971, after managing a safe factory in New York. The Surimax safes were built in China and exported to the US, Canada, Mexico , Chile and Lebanon. The sons invented a safe that is 40% lighter than the traditional safes. Traditional safes have a concrete core, the sides of the Surimax safe are filled with plastic.
