Owing to its its constant growth in Mexico, Bosch has inaugurated a new manufacturing facility within its Aguascalientes Campus.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by Martín Orozco Sandoval, the Governor of the State, CP., and Luis R. Martínez Castañeda, the Secretary of Economic Development.
With an investment of more than $16 million for the construction of the 36,000 square metre facility, the Germany based supplier will manufacture the second generation of state-of-the-art technology in automotive brake systems, the iBooster2. The new facility named building 111, will additionally produce other products such as the ABS G9 (Anti-lock Braking System) and ESP (Electronic Stability Programme).
“Mexico is an important region and investment destination for the Bosch Group. We respond to an increase in demand for new products. The company has expanded its manufacturing capacity in all its plants to maintain its leadership as a provider of technology and services,” commented Gonzalo Simental, Vice President of Finance at Robert Bosch Mexico.
“We announce this expansion with great pride. We are celebrating the growth of the Aguascalientes plant focused on the preference of consumers and the attraction of talent in the State and in the country,” said Orlando Ramírez, Plant Manager.
The Bosch Aguascalientes plant was founded more than 25 years ago. Currently more than 1,200 associates work on the site and it is estimated that around 300 new jobs will be generated in the following years.
