A company that emerged from the passion for automobile

History

We are the third generation of a company founded back in 1972. We started as parts and accessories distributors for the aftermarket and built a network of 1,200 customers across the country. Eventually, we became manufacturers reaching out to the international market.

This change took place in 1976 with the manufacturing of graphite spark plug wire sets with a new system of graphite core wires wrapped in plastic that endowed the wires with enhanced flexibility and duration. Before this breakthrough, wires used to suffer from a quick deterioration and caused short circuits in the ignition system.

In 1983, Nestor Ferrazi developed a spark plug wire made of silicone rubber and a glass fibre mesh that became the first Argentine wire used for motor racing and which eventually was adopted by the main racers and racing teams in the country.

Nowadays, we are devoted mainly to the manufacturing of sets of spark plug wire sets and of silicone wires. What once was an innovation is now a common product in the market.

In 2003, we moved to our current facilities located in the city of Buenos Aires (3011 Murguiondo St.). Our shop turned into to a 1,300-m2 plant.

That same year, our company started a process to reach international markets, the first destination was Chile but, with the passing of time, our products gained access to markets such as Brazil, Peru, Uruguay and Bolivia where we continue doing business. At the same time, we have taken part in the following international shows:

- Automechanika Buenos Aires: 2002-2004-2006-2008-2014
- PRI-SHOW, Estados Unidos: 2015
- AUTOMEC Brasil: 2015

In 2006, we obtained our ISO 9001:2001 international certification for quality standards thus formalizing our ongoing improvement processes.

At the same time, our company started a professionalization process that finally consolidated in 2012 when the third generation of our family was incorporated into our business. Our new members were determined to formalize and organize our working processes to secure the presence and growth of our company in the market.

Since 2013, we have been permanently introducing new technologies to increase our automation processes and procuring new machinery to manufacture the components for our products.

Our young interns are given the chance to benefit from a work experience that will enable them to access the formal work market in the future. At the end of their internship, many of them are permanently employed in our company.

We also offer internship opportunities to high school students who are in the last year of their technical school studies in our region.
