A proud Mexican company committed to quality
Founded by Don Custodio Aguilar Málaga, Coliman was born in 1963 in the city of Tecomán, in the state of Colima, Mexico; a strategic area of agricultural production and distribution in western Mexico.
In 1978, his son, Don Jorge Aguilar Heredia, opened the first marketing center in Hermosillo, Sonora, founding the first Grupo AGGALL-Coliman company. In the following years, the area of production and commercial influence quickly extended to other regions of the country.
Currently, the companies that are part of our Group, allow us to guarantee the highest quality in each part of our process, production, distribution and marketing; quality that has characterized us for more than 50 years and this has made our products to be consumed in millions of households around the world, proudly putting the name of Mexico at the top.
