Find out where we come from and where we are going

1952 – 1982


GEKO was founded over than 70 years ago, with Greek and Venezuelan origins. Our grandfather, Harry Koulouthros, together with our father, Georges Koulouthros (GE-KO), moved from Greece to Venezuela, with dreams ahead of them and endless ideas. Using their knowledge and the experience they had working with European companies, they founded a fabric and textile products representation company, called Representaciones Georges Koulouthros SRL, aimed at satisfying the market of wholesalers and distributors in Caracas.

1952 – 1982
1983 – 1998


The family business developed, gradually incorporating the three sons. The generational handover process began in 1983, and took approximately a decade to be completed. In 1987, sales began to increase with new customer portfolios in the industrial, manufacturing and household lines, among others. New divisions were included, such as natural fibers (cotton, ramie, linen), synthetic fibers (polyester, nylon, acrylic), man-made fibers (rayon-viscose), plain and textured filaments, elastomers, latex and coated rubbers, regenerated yarns, natural yarns (mainly cotton), natural/synthetic blends and pretended yarns, among others. By 1995 the 3 brothers were fully operational and in charge of the company, while the founders happily retired. In the same year the company began to venture into Latin American markets, specifically Colombia, Peru and Mexico. In 1998 the company was renamed Representaciones GEKO C.A., as a worthy heir of the original company. In 1998 the company also ventured into the Costa Rican market.

1983 – 1998
1999 – 2009


In a decade, we managed to penetrate most of the countries in the region: Dominican Republic in 1999, Ecuador in 2001, Guatemala and Central America in 2005. By 2009, the company reached a volume of more than 350 containers of textile raw material delivered per month, tripling sales between 2000-2009.

1999 – 2009
2010 – 2021


By 2014, international sales covered 70% of the total revenue, thus achieving the challenge of internationalizing the company, so as not to depend exclusively on the Venezuelan market. That same year, the office in Panama was established in order to cover the surrounding markets more effectively. GEKOtex Ltd S.A. was created in 2018, with headquarters in Panama, thus obtaining greater weight and presence as a company of international scope & reach.
