The Miguel Caballero Survivors Club is a great initiative that collects and shares the stories of people who, thanks to our protective garments, have managed to survive different threats and have obtained invaluable benefits.
This idea arises to strengthen our commitment to the safety of the people who trust in Miguel Caballero, because our customers are the greatest testimonials of how our garments comply with each of the requirements of our customers.
