Our Company was founded in 1917 by Mr. Eugenio G. Richer when he was 23 years old. He started operations in a small office in downtown Nuevo Laredo. He and 2 assistants gave first service to some companies in Mexico City importing goods from U.S.A. . In those years, the total merchandise movement from Nuevo Laredo to Mexico City was 1 train wagon a week. Some years later in 1936, due to federal regulations, Mr. Richer acquired his broker patent and moved to our current address in Nuevo Laredo. His son Ermilo, born in 1926, worked with him since 1945. Their first important client was the formely "Corona" Brewing Co, now Grupo Modelo. By 1957 was born Ermilo Jr. who enters the company in 1978 and starts making use of the emerging computer technology to help maintain the control of the numerous operations. Today he is still well involved as our President and in the day to day operations of the company.
In the beginning of 2007, the fourth generation comes along, Ermilo E Richer III joins to continue with the growth of the company and at the same time seek new ways to better improve customer service and attain to our clients needs through state of the art technology which is being implemented into all of our operations.
