Meet Reinel Antonio Posada from the Bochica production center, a native of the municipality of Supía, Caldas. For 30 years his hands harvest colored flowers that travel by boat around the world. A man with caramel skin and black eyes, opened his heart to navigate through the stories he has been writing since 1991. “I started in Los Geranios, I remember I was very young. Since that moment I began a long journey through the company that today is called Flores El Capiro, which was previously located in Las Palmas”. His first job was in the production area, until one day” I remember that Doctor Alirio Ramírez came up to me and said: Reinel, is it true that you are from Supía, Caldas? and I told him that yes, I was from that region and he immediately told me that we were compatriots. He asked meif I would like to learn to harvest and I said yes, and that is when the journey began.
Reinel lived in a humble place near Las Palmas and every day he got up early to walk to the company, which today he remembers fondly. The caramel-skinned man has travelled the land where Capiro has left a mark, he has passed through the production center of Llanogrande, Padua, Valley, Plantas Madres and Bochica, and now is currently working at the harvest area, a job he has carried out with respect and love for 10 years.
“I got part of my house with Capiro, thanks to my savings and stability. I recently organized it with a loan I took out from the Employees’ Fund” . Reinel tells people who are starting to work with Capiro, that it takes a lot of perseverance, sacrifice and honesty to reach 30 years in a company. “Here they give me stability and pay me correctly every time. In the 30 years that I have been here they have never failed to pay us, not even when the dollar was bad as we say… and even less now that we are in a pandemic. Capiro is a very stable company”.
Today we would like to thank Reinel for his commitment, loyalty and for helping us to deliver smiles through flowers. We want all the people who read this story to realize that behind the whole process of a flowers we have people with golden stories, stories that inspire us and allow us to continue creating special moments with our collaborators. Congratulations Reinel for navigating in the company of opportunities, we are very proud to celebrate with you and your family your 30 years in our company.
