The Venecia Group was established in 1953 by its President, José B. Rodríguez Figueira, who had the vision of identifying a business opportunity at the Maracaibo Port, in Zulia State, originated by the growing demand for food and supplies from the ships that arrived to that port. It was named Venecia Maracaibo. In 1972 and under the new name of Venecia Ship Suppliers (VEPUCA), operations are moved to Puerto Cabello Port, which was a broad expansion at that time. In a short period of time and with enough capital and experience accumulated an opportunity appeared to diversify the range of services offered and Venecia Ship Services (VESCA) was created in 1974, with the goal of tending specifically to those services related with the towing and salvaging ships activities.
