Cordero is the embodied dream of Esteban Cordero, an Italian immigrant who in 1948, after having been trained as a designer at the Italian Aeronautics, landed in Argentina with determination.
He started as a toolmaker for third parties and in 1968 he tried his luck: he approached FIAT and asked to work for them. The car manufacturer put his skills to the test and gave him a part that was practically impossible to develop. In 48 hours Esteban Cordero had even manufactured a batch of the part, which quickly won their trust.
He made the 100% of the hinges, pedals and gear shifts for all the FIAT 600, 1500, 125, 125 pick up, 128, 133, Spazio, Uno, Regatta and Duna, as well as for the Peugeot 504, 505 and 504 pick up that were produced in Argentina. His inventiveness was the engine of the company’s growth and the trademark that differentiates us today.

We take care of the environment according to the best international practices. Our main efforts are focused on the efficient use of energy, the incorporation of renewable energies and the reduction of our carbon footprint. That is why every year we carry out an Energy Review, accompanied by Metering 4.0 technology…
In 2021 we made the decision to recruit women into the production area to change the industry’s paradigm. Today we have 31 women in the assembly, projection and robotic welding, maintenance and quality sectors. It has been a very positive and enriching experience.
We want to keep increasing this number every day.
