May 27, 2021. The Argentine compressed natural gas (CNG) industry has lost one of its precursors: José Aspromonte, founder and former President of Aspro company, who also chaired the Argentine CNG Association.

The Italian-born businessman, who arrived in Argentina at almost 13 years old, marked a turning point in the development of alternative fuels in the country, when in the eighties he became one of the pioneers in the manufacture and commercialization of compressors for CNG stations.

Since the installation of its first natural gas filling station in 1988, in the Buenos Aires district of San Martín; to have 80% of the CNG stations in the Buenos Aires-Córdoba corridor; the establishment of an assembly plant in Curitiba to serve the Brazilian market; the construction of a 20,000-square-meter factory on a seven-hectare site in Escobar; up to its current presence in 45 countries with more than 5,400 compressors sold; the Aspro brand has established itself as a world reference in the activity, thanks to the leadership of its founder and the entrepreneurial example that he has left to those who today lead the destinies of the company.
