Since April 2008, the company has been part of the Spanish large-cap IBEX 35 stock index.

TRSA is the primary holding company for a group of companies capable of providing several different integrated services for turnkey projects worldwide. Since 1959, the TRSA group of companies has designed and built over 1000 industrial plants worldwide. International projects account for 70% of the company's annual turnover, mainly in Latin America and China.[2] The firm has also moved increasingly into the Middle East,[3] and in January 2009 was awarded a $1.2 billion contract to develop two onshore fields in the UAE for a subsidiary of ADNOC.[4]

Its R&D Centre, located in Madrid, Spain, is equipped with laboratory facilities and pilot and demonstration plants designed to be adapted to different process configurations. The R&D division develops new processes and the technological and economical improvement of existing ones, applying techniques and procedures of disciplines such as hydrometallurgy and electrochemistry. A fundamental objective is the upscaling from laboratory testing to industrial scale operations.
