    serch.it?q=Mabe-(company)

    Mabe is a Mexican-owned, Mexican-based global company which designs, produces, and distributes appliances to more than 70 countries around the world. The company was incorporated in Mexico City in 1946 by Egon Mabardi and Francisco Berrondo, both Spanish refugees who escaped turmoil of Civil War. Mabe was initially dedicated to manufacture kitchen furniture. In the 1950s, Mabe began manufacturing various appliances such as gas ranges and refrigerators. Rapid growth allowed Mabe to become the leading exporter of home appliances in Mexico as early as 1960. In 1986, Mabe entered into an important joint venture with General Electric Co. to produce appliances for the US market. As part of an effort to move away from controlling Mexican operations from the US, GE decided to enter into the joint venture with a 48 per cent minority stake. While GE hoped to gain access to Mexico’s low cost labour pool, Mabe was given greater access to the world’s largest consumer market through GE’s US distribution network.
