Nicolas Platonoff Batrak was born on October 2, 1904 in Poltava, Ukraine, in a peasant family, in which he lived a happy childhood that left him a deep impression of values and virtues, which had an effect along his whole life.

When he was 20 years old, as the process of change in his land started, he decided to immigrate in China, where he lived several experiences, which he overcame, considering them a clear manifestation of the lord. After that he travelled to America, boarding a ship, and then going through a 40 days trip, he arrived at the port of Manzanillo in Colima. He stepped off the ship, without being able to speak Spanish, carrying a big trunk with clothes, and only some coins in his pocket, but being highly motivated to start a new life. He stumbled upon good people, who lent him a hand, and helped him out without any other intention than to be useful, and believing that god was always with him. Later, he arrived at Mexico City, where he settled, starting a life in the business of construction. His business slogan was: “House construction BBB”. BBB stood for Buenas, Bonitas y Baratas (in English: Good, Beautiful and Cheap Houses). When he had already spent 10 years in Mexico, he married Mrs. Luz Manzanares Cardenas, who remained his inseparable and unconditional mate, along his whole life, and living together with her, he carried on working for his lifespan, struggling, with generosity, fulfilment and difficulties mixed with easier periods, which he could surpass, thanks to his deep love, tenderness, and big faith in god.

His three children always occupied the first place in his heart, while he always gave them what was most convenient for their lives as members of a society and children of god.

He was a hardworking man, always working together with people. He always liked everything to be well done; he always demanded in all work, a good finishing, up to the last detail.

A straight-arrow Mexican, without behaviour deviations for the sake of convenience, grieving and helping our deficiency in different ways to overcome them, never did anything that could harm the country, even if it meant sacrificing not travel abroad in times of crisis to not take money from the country.


Live passionately activities of the company doing business based on our principles and values, providing benefits to all involved in our business and acting as a socially responsible company.
