IMPOFER was created in 1971 with the objective to introduce innovative imported hardware products into the Colombian market, in particular those that are not locally produced. Since then one of IMPOFER´s greatest achievements has been the introduction of diverse brands and products from 20 different countries around the globe.

The growth of the company over the past 42 years is clearly measurable in terms of its payroll which has grown from 6 employees in 1971 to 200 staff currently employed nationwide, and its turnover which exceeds US$23 million annually.

Through its national network of sales representatives and branches, IMPOFER caters most of the Colombian national territory. The business which was initially conceived as a wholesaler has gradually moved to the retail sector due to an increasingly demand for specialized industrial hardware products. As a result, the retail line of business has gained incredible importance making necessary the establishment of additional branches in the main industrial locations of Colombia, named: Cali, Medellin, Cartagena, Barranquilla, Bucaramanga and Pereira.

This national growth started in 1979 with the opening of IMPOFER in Cali. Today this branch operates in its own facilities and counts with great prestige within the city. In the same year, IMPOFER opened another branch for its northern territory sales representatives and later in 1995 a fully owned branch was built and inaugurated in a very important industrial and commercial area of Barranquilla.

In 1992, a small branch was opened in Cartagena. However its tremendous success paved the way to open a bigger and fully functional branch on the active El Bosque avenue The branch in Medellin city, commenced operations in 1995 and has gained a significant part of the market share of Medellin and its surroundings, the branch of Pereira started in 2008 in the center of the Colombian coffee growers and the latest opened was Bucaramanga in 2010 in the Northeast of Colombia.

IMPOFER’S constant dedication to service excellence and clients´ satisfaction lead the way to the opening of new facilities for its head office in Bogotá. An adjacent new branch specialized in Machinery and Tools was opened to offer, in a spacious and functional show room, a wider range of electrical and hand tools, welding equipment, lifting equipment, metal cutters and other implements. Leaving the main store for fluid control related products as all kinds of valves, pipes and fittings.

Today, IMPOFER is a leading player in the industrial hardware area. As in 1971, Innovation, New Markets, Quality and Customer Service, are still the standards that support its success and recognition in Colombia.
