The company was started in 1946 by Gregorio Ramirez Gonzalez, with a small shop to reconstruct dry van trailers. It later grew into a larger corporation with a full list of products in which he invited his brothers to participate.

Trailers de Monterrey

The flagship of the Corporation was Trailers de Monterrey, which began as a dry van fabricator and grew into making trucks and buses under the Sultana brand,

Industria Automotriz

In 1957 Industria Automotriz, S.A. was established, manufacturing rims, stampings, assembly and sub assembly.

Berg de Mexico

In 1964 Berg de Mexico, S.A. was established to produce air brakes for heavy vehicles. In 1982 it was renamed to Industrias Vortec, S.A.

Holding company

By 1978 Grupo Industrial Ramirez was established as a holding company, controlling all of the group's interests.

Present status

The present status of the company is uncertain. It appears that several alleged bad business and fraudulent practices perpetrated by its current CEO Gregorio Ramirez Jauregui are being reviewed by Mexican authorities [2][3].
