here are many ideas that continue as ideas, and never quite take form. That was not the case with Amistad Industrial Developers, when its founder, Jesus Maria Ramon, made his successful idea operational in 1978 in Cd. Acuna, Coahuila. Presently, with more than 30 years of experience, this idea has now grown to be one of the top development companies in Mexico.
