CUEX, S. A. is a private company dedicated to the sale and distribution of materials and goods for the construction and industrial sectors in Cuba and the Caribbean.
We have an experience of over 25 years marketing goods with offices established in Havana, Santa Clara and Varadero in Cuba. Our staff is highly qualified in technical, commercial and regulatory aspects, which allows us to successfully go through the entire process of introducing new products, from market research to its commercialization.
Below we show part of our history:
CUEX, S. A., was born in 1992 with the aim of marketing materials, equipment and supplies of the highest quality for the construction sector in Cuba.
In 1994, we signed a contract with CONSUMIMPORT, a company of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Trade, which allowed us to offer products such as electrical materials, ceramic floors and paintings in all their stores around the country.
Since 1995 we are engaged in a commercial relationship with International Trading House (ITH), a company of the Cuban Ministry of Tourism, that delivers all materials and equipment for the development of the hotel and tourism infrastructure. Under this commercial relationship, we supply them with ceramic floors, cement glue, bathroom furniture and light wall panels, among other products.
In 1995, a multi-year contract was signed to provide construction materials to the importing company IMECO, depending of the Cuban Ministry of Construction. During that year, an strategic and commercial partnership was established with the company RENSOL for the manufacture and installation of solar water heating systems to attend the tourism sector.
In 1996, CUEX, S. A. enters into the industrial sector, by shipping and distributing into Cuba supplies and equipment for the oil and power generation industries. In the following years, we started the distribution of products for the mining, telecommunications, manufacturing and agriculture sectors.
In that same year, a commercial alliance was celebrated with EMPRESTUR to provide comprehensive solutions and “turnkey” construction, remodeling and installation projects, in addition to selling materials. This project was the starting point of a more integral strategy, in which our company offers our clients a comprehensive solution for their project’s needs: from assistance on the project’s design to delivering all the materials and supervision required to succesfully completing it.
Starting in 2002, CUEX, S. A. made the decision to reorganize the company in two different divisions: Construction and Industrial. This allowed us to achieve greater specialization and provide better attention to the various business sectors.
In 2004 an agreement was signed with the construction company ECUSE for the supply of light construction products (UNIFIX), tools, materials for the installation of decorative curtains, ceiling and other raw materials and inputs for carpentry and aluminum profiles and accessories.
In 2008 the Aluminum Division was created, specializing in the sale and distribution of aluminum profiles, fittings and glass. Currently the division sells its products to the aluminum carpentry in Cuba through a consignment agreement established with Maquimport, a company of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Trade.
