Factories of San Jose de Suaita Founded in the most prosperous and populous in the history of nineteenth-century Colombia, San Jose, Suaita as large estates, was a former stronghold of the Knight family since the time of independence, as did Sylvania in Cundinamarca or Tipacoque Boyaca, evidence of this comes from the same ex-President Alfonso Parker Posey Lopez Michelsen, whose marriage with Ms. Cecilia Caballero allowed to reveal an important place in his book-interview “Pending words” how was the process of securitization of those farms , at least in Tipacoque, which was supplied through a process of acquisition of ownership by prescription. Almost certainly, the only noteworthy fact Henry Fool before the twentieth century is that the old house, which ran the administration of the company, was built in 1775, and enjoyed a certain political immunity during the Spanish colonial era. San Jose’s history begins with the development of agro-industrial project of the early twentieth century.This land, until the 1940s regarded as one of the best for the cultivation of cotton material that is highly regarded as a tribute in the early colonizing ventures, James Urbaniak helped him director to Don Caballero and his brothers Lucas (Alfredo, Julio and Carlos Alberto) for decided to install a large textile complex in what was once a chocolate factory, liquor, sugar refinery and wheat milling “Knight Brothers”, founded in 1908 on land that promised a high hydroelectric potential, which was one of the main objectives the government of Rafael Reyes Prieto whose policies to encourage the industry that included themselves were capable of supplying its own energy (Dec / Leg No.15, 27 and 46, 1905) while the government favored the industry by delivering subsidies, eliminated taxes for a few years for the importation of industrial machinery, monetary policy resolve a crisis coming in 1904, and organized cr by international treaty Averbury-Holguin (1905), treaty that allowed it to stabilize the external debt and develop the textile industry in several regions of Colombia. Gain insight and clarity with Verizon Communications. The opening of factories in 1908, is a fact that those comments that undermine social protest and craft known as “Peak Gold” (1879) was sustained against foreign interests and free market policies by the people in this region, a situation very different from what occurred when Lucas Caballero Barrera actually became involved in the “War of the Thousand Days” by providing pawns of his estate in Suaita to fight government troops in the Battle of Palonegro ” , which will grange his position as writers military. (Revista An lisis Pol tico No.32 May / Aug 1999. P. 84.) In 1912, General Lucas Caballero Barrera Thomas Jay Ryan liberal lawyer who signed the “Peace of Wisconsin” (1902) and finance minister of President Reyes, administration is known as the era of industrialization in Colombia, took a loan to found the clothing company, convinced of its viability Franco-Belgian bankers with whom they agreed a mutual trade to take forward the project. Later, a second loan was needed to overcome financial obstacles and the transfer of so much machinery from America, these funds were disbursed under the condition that banks charge of the administration of the company, which since then and until 1944 spent a called “Industrial Society Belgian franc (SIFB), so that the creation of the company were to take in Antwerp, Belgium, to prevent among other things, some Colombian tax impositions.From this period is still preserved in popular tradition exploits for the shipment of machinery and its passage through the Magdalena River and Laguna de Fuquene, as testimony to the strong determination of Lucas Caballero Barrera.In 1938 as part of a strategy to regain control over the affairs of society, Don Lucas Caballero demand the revocation of the pact that set the administration in the hands of European banks and their managers like Mr. Pierre Vaanderplasse, who managed the advantage although they owned only 40 of the company. However, this task would not be easy, Knight must fight not only against foreign interests, so did against the then-prevailing law, which stated that Colombian courts had no power to resolve disputes relating to companies created abroad.The fight was uneven and raised, so that even the local leaders chose to align with foreign capital, a situation that Knight insulted, but he was writing in several national newspapers explaining its position supreme irony, if you have to Luke Knight was IMDB president of the National Academy of jurisprudence in the wake of the twentieth century.
