INPUD. We produce products highly competitive items
Characterized today for producing highly competitive items and having excellent human capital, the Empresa Industrial Nacional Productora de Utensilios Domésticos (INPUD) is today the main “ally” of Cuban households, being the main producer of domestic utensils in the country.
Founded in 1964 by heroic guerrilla Ernesto “Che” Guevara, then Minister of Industry, in the city of Santa Clara, in the center of the island, the fledgling factory began initially by training young people from sugar mills (factories) to convert them into technicians and skilled workers, who would be the central pillar of the entity’s workforce.
Subsequently, INPUD, as it is known throughout the world, would quickly begin to supply Cuban households with various utensils, whose production contributed significantly to import substitution. Marisel Montero Lago, General Director, explained that the company is subordinate to the Ministerio de Industrias (MINDUS) and integrated to the Organización Superior de Dirección Empresarial (OSDE) and several of the products are based on the recovery of raw materials.
Main sectors and clients supplied by INPUD:
