His first manufacturing plant was located in the neighborhood of Pompeya with a capacity of 1700m2 of land. On September 3rd 1990, the manufacturing of car bodies was launched with a total of 17 operators and 3 administrative clerks under the supervision of the president of the company, manufacturing an average of 3 units per month.

By the end of 1990, AUTOBUS S.A. starts to develop its products under de Brand name UGARTE and gained a prominent optimization of production.

Due to the high demand of the products in the market, in 1998, the company underwent an expansion process that involved the renovation of a big estate located in Av Juan Bautista Alberdi 7334, in Mataderos neighborhood. This property is around 7000m2 and it is the place where the company is currently operates.
