History of Horno Alto Nº 3, Horno Alto Nº 3 was designed by Arthur G. McKee & Co. from Cleveland, Ohio. The installation began in October 1965 and it began operating in January 1968, with the capacity to produce 1,500 to 2,000 tons of cast iron per day. It had the most advanced technologies, notable among which were the electronic programmer of raw materials and the automatic system for the control of furnace combustion. With the beginning of operations of Horno Alto Nº 3, the Monterrey Foundry reached a production of a million tons of steel per year, which made it the most important steel mill in Mexico.

Eye opening/much history & learning on what made Monterrey the industrial capital of Mexico. Love it & proud to have had uncles who worked there. Highly recommend & you won't spend much.
