Soul, heart and wisdom
Eulogio Peña García (Seville, 1933-2003) was an admired visionary and Sevillian entrepreneur. Andalusian with an Asturian mother, he founded the Meupe firm (Mecanizados Eulogio Peña) as part of the third generation of his family of professionals dedicated to the mechanic sector. He started to develop his profession in the public company Hispano-Aviación, currently Airbus Military. There, in the old factory of war airplanes, he befriended German Wilhem Emil Messerschmitt, creator of the legendary Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter. In 1957 he left the Hispano-Aviación company to embark on the project of his life: Meupe, a business based on his genius. In the creation of this company, dedicated to the production of aeronautical parts, he poured in his soul, heart and all his engineering knowledge.
His love for aviation brought him to become a civil pilot during his leisure time. He was member of the Aeroclub of Tablada and he participated in the first Vuelta Aérea de Andalucía on board a biplane. Eulogio Peña achieved a great recognition in his homeland thanks to his contribution in the fields of aeronautical engineering and mechanics. But, above all, he was distinguished by his personality, for being a humble man and being concerned for all those who formed part of his life.
