The legacy of our grandfather
Conrad F Meyer is a third-generation family business which was founded by our grandfather, Mr. Conrad Friedrich Meyer. Our grandfather, founder of the company, taught us the values, tradition and knowledge that were necessary to continue running this company for so many years.
una historia de superación, trabajo, tradición y evolución
Mr. Conrad Friedrich Meyer was born on 29 February 1896 in Hannover, Germany, and in 1924 he moved to Vigo (Spain). He later founded the company, which was originally dedicated to the importation of tin from Stahlunion – Export Gmbh (Düsseldorf, Germany) to Spain, where it was used to manufacture food cans. The business was subsequently expanded by selling steel sheets for the naval sector.
The self-improvement skills and working capacity of our grandfather and his son Mr. Edgar Meyer built up this company, which started to focus on the naval sector, through German representatives such as Klöckner Humboldt Deutz Gmbh, engines for fishing vessels and freezer vessels that were built in the Vigo Shipyard. The business already covered all of Galicia and Conrad F Meyer was already well established in the sector and enjoyed great prestige and reputation.
Our will is to continue this legacy over time.
Experience, background and evolution
Above all, this is a legacy of family tradition, where responsibility and inherited values come first.
