The company was founded in 1942 by Don Augusto Maggiolo Cavenecia, located in Chucuito, in the port of Callao.
During its beginnings, small-scale fishing boats were built. In the mid-50s with the development of industrial fishing in Peru, the company expands its operations, a period of shipbuilding for industrial fishing of anchovy (“Bolicheras”), intended for fishmeal, begins.
Peru became the world's largest producer of fishmeal. The shipyard in the 50s and 60s had up to 40 vessels under construction at a time.
In the late 50s, the shipyard delivered a series of patrol boats to the Peruvian Navy. During the 60s, 300 industrial fishing vessels were converted.
During the 70s, 80, and 90, the shipyard focuses on maintenance of the peruvian industrial fleet.
In the late 90s, investments increased the maximum capacity to 55m long and 1,000 ton.
In the early 2000s, fishing vessels with refrigerated seawater system (RSW) with a length of up to 55m were constructed; and various expansion projects for vessels in order to correct the conditions of stability and freeboard of this type to several peruvian fishing companies.
In the late 2000s, a new facility which began operations in 2010 is acquired. This new shipyard has the capacity to serve ships up to 105m long and 2,500 ton, increasing its supply to other types of heavier and larger sized ships such as tuna and jigging vessels who come to Panama or Chile to meet their requirements.
In 2011, a 87m long ferry with capacity for 850 passengers and 150 cars was built, classified by International Maritime Inspections.
Between 2012 and 2014, oil exploration platforms were built with 100 m high and 1,800 tons.
