Long story short

This is how it happened

The Codinter organization is a family business that started operations in 1979 in Colombia with the manufacture of auto parts for the automotive industry.

Later it incorporated to its business the distribution of products and services related to the manufacturing and maintenance industry, such as equipment for welding, cutting, drilling, bending, punching, rolling and painting as well as all its accessories and consumables, including the local support that accompanies our customers with our value added services.

Since 1985 it decided to expand its coverage beyond the Colombian borders and opened operations in the neighboring country, Venezuela. Subsequently, in 1997 it opened operations in the United States from where it covers more than 125 countries in all continents. More recently, in December 2017, it opened operations in the Brazilian market and in 2023 in the Mexican market.

Now, the second generation of the family is at the helm of this organization. It takes the leadership of this entrepreneur and seeks to continue with the geographic growth in promising markets to expand its solutions in different sectors to ensure the development of both the company and its employees.

A man, a vision

The founder of Codinter, Mr. Luis Enrique Cadena, is a metallurgical engineer with experience in the automotive and manufacturing industry.

Thanks to his ambitious goals, and leading an interdisciplinary work team, he has motivated the organization to sustainable growth with an organizational culture based on continuous improvement, to always meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.

More than just a group of companies, the Codinter organization is a family where each member gets a place to develop professionally. We are proud to have many colleagues who have made their entire professional career in Codinter.
