GALGO Celebrates 70th Anniversary

Mexican tread rubber manufacturer GALGO is celebrating its 70th anniversary throughout the month of August.

Major Milestone for Mexican Tread Producer

The company, which has become a world leader in rubber manufacturing, began producing and marketing shoe soles in August 1952 in Mexico City, Mexico. Soon after, they expanded their product offering to include rubber flooring and mats, gaskets, tubes, flaps, and tyre retreading products.

"From the beginning, our mission has been to ensure that our company and brands stand for quality, loyalty, trust, and an undying commitment to our customers. At GALGO, our colleagues are not just employees but rather a part of an extended family where we all share in the beliefs and values that were the foundation that was laid down 70 years ago by our founder and my father, Jose Suarez Sr," said Jose Suarez Jr.-C.E.O./Industrias de Hule GALGO SA de CV.

GALGO markets its products worldwide with the help of well over 1200 associates. They have international distribution centres in Mexico, the United States, Colombia, and Belgium, four branches, and their corporate office within Mexico.

Luis Suarez-C.O.O./Industrias de Hule GALGO SA de CV. said; “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for the chance to be a part of their family. We also welcome new customers to join our family and see what all the excitement is about because GALGO is not just another rubber manufacturer, and you will not be just another customer; you will be part of our family!"
