Abstract

Based on an unpublished documentation from Paris, Roubaix and Antequera, this article examines a rare topic: the history of the ancient Heredia factory between 1899, the year it was sold to Hauts Fourneaux, Forges et Aciéries of Malaga, and 1924, the date on which Altos Hornos de Andalucía, its successor, closed. After synthesising the history of both companies, the
paper analyses the causes for failure of the attempt to resurrect the Málaga steel industry.
