Produccion y Gestion was founded in 1999 when 3M Colombia SA, a multinational company, made a decision to outsource their manufacturing processes.
In the beginning, this company was located in the municipality Soacha, in the old facilities of a 3M factory and then, Production y Gestion took the outsourcing of products such as: absorbent cloths, abrasive bands, medical and industrial tapes, amongst others. In the year 2000, our Board of directors decided to move the company to the municipality of Tenjo, province of Cundinamarca, at the Bruselas Industrial Park.
In 2003, 3M Colombia SA, hand-picked Produccion y Gestion Ltda to manufacture its adhesives, glues, and industrial paste compounds. From that date on, a new specialized plant was inaugurated in industrial and adhesives manufacturing.
During 2007 and 2008 ,a great project was run for the design, construction and commissioning of a Health Care Excellence Center. It was inaugurated by the end of 2008 in the modern Celta Trade Park, which is located in Km 7, Bogota – Medellin highway. In 2012 the brand of the company was changed from Ltd to Produccion y Gestion S.A.S, which is its current trade name.
Health Care Excellence Center is one of the highest state-of-the-art manufacturing plants in Latin America and it is certified by INVIMA (the Colombian equivalent of FDA). This institute issued certificates in Production, Primary and Secondary Conditioning for cosmetic products, and also for medical devices and domestic cleaning products.
Our company also has ISO certificates 9001: 2008; 14001:2004; and OSHAS 18001: 2007; 13485: 2003, which is specific for medical devices. ICA (Colombian equivalent of USDA) issued certificates to formulate, pack and distribute chemical pesticides for agricultural uses and purposes.
With our OSHAS 18001 certificate we have established occupational health and industrial safety programs that are intended to promote a personal care based organizational culture, not only inside the company’s premises and facilities, but also in any and all aspects of our employee’s lives.
We train our working teams in recycling programs, which must be implemented not only inside the Company, but also at home. Our company is ISO 14001 standard certified in such a way that we are integrally committed to the environment and its preservation needs. For this reason, we are always looking for allies and strategic partners that comply with demonstrable social and environmental requirements.
We are linked to the region through the affiliation to Asooccidente (Association of Industrial and Residents of the West of the Savannah) through which promote programs of education, non-formal training, social programs, occupational safety and health and preventive medicine, the environment, among others.
