Our story

Our story dates back to 1989, the year when Fernando Ugarte founded Autobús S. A. with the aim of manufacturing chassis for passenger transportation based on various automakers.

His first manufacturing plant was in the Pompeya neighborhood, city of Buenos Aires, with a capacity of 1700 m2 of land. It was at this location where on September 3rd, 1990, production began. Under the supervision of the company’s president, a total of 17 operators and 3 administrative staff, an average of 3 units per month were manufactured.

By the end of 1990, Autobús S. A. started to develop its products under the brand name Ugarte and gained a prominent optimization in its production process.

Due to the high demand of their products, in 1998 the company underwent an expansion that involved the renovation of a big estate located in 7334 Av. Juan Bautista Alberdi, in the Mataderos neighborhood. This property is around 7000 m2 and it is the place where the company currently operates. Thanks to this development, Ugarte has achieved a more efficient and tailored customer experience as well as a manufacturing record of 26 units per month.
