In 1961 the company Pagrun S.C.C was constituted, with plant in General San Martín, La Pampa. Their name owes to the acronym of the partners founders PAVONI and GRUNDNIG. In June of 1971 borned PAGRUN S.A.M.I.C.A., with establishment in Guatraché, La Pampa. And central administration office in Capital Federal, Buenos Aires.
The most important strategy manager it was to acquire own locations, beginning with the lagoon of Guatraché and continuing with others, in La Pampa and in Buenos Aires.
In 1995 Mr. Adolfo Grundnig, partner founder, acquires the total of the stock package of PAGRUN S.A.M.I.C.A. ,distributing it to direct members of his family. At the moment, the company develops its activity in different action fields like: mining, transport and logistics.
THE CHLORIDE OF SODIUM Salt (Sodium Chloride) is extracted from a reservoir, which has a mother that mineral layer below the bed of the lagoon called Salinas. The process of obtaining salt ponds, is caused by a dissolution step mother layer with income freshwater by precipitation, dissolving part of the grain of sodium chloride brine forming a concentrated 6-7 times more than seawater. In the warm seasons the evaporation occurs from the effects of sunlight begins to precipitate and salt grains on the bed of the lakes are formed. When you have formed a sufficient layer of salt, so that without breaking it, might step extraction equipment (tractors, trucks, harvesters, etc.) thus avoiding soil or sand at the bottom of the lakes to mix with beads salt. The top is scraped and harvested with the proper equipment, acopiándola in large piles on prepared beaches. After a suitable period of parking, the salt will be able to enter the productive process, with a refinement will make it suitable for industrial use salt or animal consumption. The salt requires a process that ensures the absence of any contaminants, and for that reason is washed with saturated brine in stages, thus eliminating the accompanying salts, small particles adhered to the faces of the crystals and heavier bodies or lighter than Sodium Chloride. It is then centrifuged to separate the clean liquid bead trailing impurities. In the next step, the salt is subjected to drying which ensures the elimination of microorganisms adhered or occluded in crystals such as halophilic bacteria. La Sal, and dry and in suitable condition to be characterized by different sizes of crystals passing through a tandem of screens, which separate it in 2 sizes of crystals: entrefino and fine with which Sal hits the market for use for animal or Industrial consumption.
The spring rains wash the saltpeter surrounding fields, contributing waters of great saline concentration, then, the salt crystallizes in beautiful buckets, forming a rock so called halita.
Applications and Uses
The packaging process is intended for industrial line in 25kg bags. and Big Bag of 1000 and 1200kg., for the manufacturing industry for detergents, anhilina, liquid soap, tanning and animal nutrition Bobinos, Sheep, Goats, Horses, Pigs, Poultry, Canine and Feline all categories.

Sodium sulfate is produced in lacustrine deposits, where the rains of spring and summer are deposited in them. This water comes in contact with the mud of the lake, forming a brine. In winter the temperature drop of the brine decantation occurs at the bottom of the lagoon forming crystals of mirabilite or Glauber's salt. Once a sufficient amount of crystal is deposited in the base of the lagoon mineral picking is performed, then the parking piles are made so that the material is brought to the plant for industrialization.

The transformation process begins with a solution and purified material. Once this stage drying the product being transported for milling, where the selection of particle size that allows to adapt the product to the requirements requested is performed starts. Finally, the packaging is done in its different presentations.
Some of the industries consumers of sulfate of sodium are:
1) Industry of the cellulose and paper.
2) IChemical industry.
3) Industry of the glass.
4) Textile dry cleanerˈs.
5) Industry agriculture –notritious.
