Our Company > History


Foundry House and Testing Julian Vasquez and Sons was organized in 1879 and opened in 1880, under the direction of Genaro Gutierrez Vasquez. In the first decade of the twentieth century was consolidated in one of the most important foundry houses in the capital of Antioquia, and in 1936 was organized as a partnership with the corporate name J. Gutierrez and Company.

Currently works as an international marketer, and hence its current corporate name C. I. J. Gutierrez y Cia. S. A. One project currently under development at the company, is writing a book that reconstructs the history of the company since the founding in the late nineteenth century, to the changes presented during the twentieth century to the present. The company counts with the help of a knowledgeable historian of mining in Antioquia.

Since 1880
