Initially, the company was devoted to the administration of Don Antenor's inheritance and to promoting projects such as the exploitation of lead and limestone mines. That is how the construction projects for the three most important cement plants in Peru came about. It is important to mention here the pioneer work of his son, Eng. Jaime Rizo Patron, presently chairman of the board of the company.

As a consequence of the Government's expropriation of the associated cement plants by the military government in 1978, the corporation's name was changed, and it was devoted to promoting and producing industrial technology, with the collaboration of highly qualified professionals and technicians. In March, 1979, ARPL obtained the first registration and qualification as first priority industrial technology producing enterprise, officially recognized in Peru with Industrial Registration Nº 15-001-T.

As a leading company in Peru, ARPL designed and managed the construction, expansion and/or remodeling of 4 of the 5 cement plants in the country, which represent 95% of the nation's market. At the same time, the corporation keeps permanent consulting agreements with two of them, monitoring the production efficiency of each plant. It has also participated in feasibility studies of cement plants in Ecuador, Brazil, Jamaica and the United States. It is considered a selected consulting company with international prestige, specializing in assessing and carrying out complete cement plant projects of the type in which the World Bank usually participates (Source: IFC, 1980).
