Cepwar, the only private business dedicated to “integral safety locksmith approved in Cuba” produces safes from discarded gas cylinders and is already marketing its first productions, Cubadebate reported.
After signing a commercial contract, the venture located in Las Tunas sent safes to the Commerce, Gastronomy and Services Business Group in that province, for which they will manufacture about a thousand units.
“We have a demand for 990 safes and today we do not have them,” said the general director of that Business Group, Rolando Rodríguez, quoted by the source.
The commerce, gastronomy and services sector in the eastern province has 1,148 centers that handle cash and one of its main needs is the protection of cash, he commented.
The self-employed Edwar García said that the liquefied gas containers, from which they obtain their sheet metal, “meet the characteristics of the standards based on their resistance and durability” for the manufacture of their products.
He explained that through the Department of Foreign Trade, Foreign Investment and International Cooperation they managed to “link up” with enterprises such as the one of raw materials, which supplies them with the necessary aluminum and other essential materials for these productions.
García pointed out that to the traditional designs of safety deposit boxes, others were added, taking advantage of supplies available in the province itself.
Under the Cepwar brand, the business is operated by three non-state workers in whose catalog the most striking product are the safes, made from liquefied gas containers that have already lost their use value to store fuel.
“Due to the project they have presented to us, we are providing them with all the cylinders that we dispose of due to quality aspects for gas storage. We evaluate the need they have to obtain these containers for their productions, which will be destined to safeguard the cash of the enterprises in the Las Tunas territory,” said Rolando González, head of the Liquefied Gas Group.
