The Gold Medal award ceremony was chaired by the mayor of Sabiñánigo Jesús Lasierra and became a recognition to the men and women who during these years have contributed to the growth of Ercros and the progress of the city. In his speech, the mayor said that "this company is the origin of Sabiñánigo. If at the beginning of the last century we were able to generate activity and life in the rural world, we must strive to achieve it in the 21st century."
