Since it was established in late 2015, LISI Automotive’s operations in Monterrey have grown rapidly to meet a significant increase in needs of the automotive sector in Mexico for technical plastic parts and multi-material assemblies.
A brand new 5,600 square metre factory was commissioned 3 km from the old factory. The fitting out of the factory (creation of offices and social premises) was completed in 4 months.
In just 5 weeks the equipment and stocks were transferred from the old site and production was completely restarted. The layout of equipment, storage areas and circulation lanes has been deployed in full respect of LEAN from the outset.
The new LISI Automotive Monterrey has expanded both its production capacities and its areas of expertise. Monterrey has integrated machining, assembly and control of cold-forged mechanical safety components to produce electric parking brake mechanisms in order to meet the growing demand for these products in North America.
