In the early 1960´s three engineers working at DuPont realized the quality of bolting equipment they used was poor and in short supply. They opened a small shop in their garage and started making the bolts and nuts themselves. AUGE officially kicked-off operations in Mexico City in May 1965. 52 years later AUGE is a privately held North American manufacturer with a 150,000 square feet state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Toluca, Estado de Mexico.
