Initial production began in 1953 with the introduction of the Ramirez Sultana bus. The engine used at that time was an imported General Motors. In fact, more than 80% of the vehicle consisted of imported parts. Mexican content increased rapidly and today the Ramirez is almost 100% Mexican made.

Following the Sultana bus was the Ramirez heavy-duty truck. Production of this model began in 1959. The original model came with a Dulles transmission of 12 and 15 gears. Also available were Cummins Diesel engine of 180, 220, 250, and 320 horsepower. From 1959 to 1961, less than 350 of these trucks were built by the company.

The latest model to be introduced was the Rural­ Ramirez. This was a small pick-up truck with a capacity of 750 kilograms. This was one of the first pick-up trucks to be designed in Mexico. I t was available with either a 4 or a 6-cylinder gasoline engine. A 4-cylinder diesel engine was also offered. At that time Trailers de Monterrey continued to expand rapidly and acquired new factories. In 1964 their affiliate, Industria Automotriz, S.A., went into the manufacture of original equipment. for automotive vehicles. This plant started with 11 presses with the capacity of from 400 to 2,00 tons. By 1965 the company was supplying other Mexican manufacturers with parts.

In Dutch, my homelanguage: Ik ben Jeroen, tot januari 2015 was ik al dik 26 jaar werkzaam in een psychiatrisch ziekenhuis in een stad vlakbij Werelds grootste havenstad Rotterdam. Eerst als verpleegkundige/begeleider op high care, later op afdeling dubbeldiagnose (verslavingen) en ook nog een tijdje als administratief medewerker. Ik heb een spierziekte "Poli Myositis" (alle spieren zijn ontstoken) daardoor weinig energie. Sinds augustus 2015 is daarbij de diagnose Kanker gesteld, en ben ik helemaal arbeidsongeschikt geworden en zit middenin de behandelfase. Gelukkig ben ik daarnaast getrouwd, vader, en opa, en heb de nodige hobby's. Een daarvan is transportmiddelen verzamelen en daarmee een blog schrijven. Dit blog begon met bussen, maar nu komen ook sleepboten, auto's trucks en dergelijke aan bod. Kijk en geniet met me mee, reageer, en vul gerust aan. Fouten zal ik ook graag verbeteren. In English: I'm Jeroen, till januari 2015 I was already 26 years working as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital, near Rotterdam, Worlds biggest harbour with more than 98 nationalities living within it's borders. First I worked on closed high care ward and the last years on a ward with mainly addicted people. I liked my work very much. In 2007 I got ill. I got the diagnose Poli Myositis, a musscle dissease. Al my mussles are inflamed. And last august I got another diagnose. Cancer. It's plaveicelcel carcinoma and treated with Chemo and radioation. So I've even less energy than the last years. Still I try to make something of my life and the blog is helping with surviving with some pleasure.
