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.

a family business, which included shipping agencies, customs
agents and boat services. The main office is located in Puerto
