The event began with a reception and speeches, including by Governor Servién, among others. Following the symbolic ribbon cutting, Dr Kress and representatives from MAPAL Frhenosa took their guests on a tour of the new site. An exhibition was set up in the machine hall showing off the product range. Banners in front of each machine station provided information about the individual manufacturing steps and the range of services from MAPAL Frhenosa. A follow-up lunch rounded off the ceremony.
Subhead Doubling capacity
Currently 35 employees work in Querétaro and a further expansion is planned. “This allows us to significantly improve our reaction times and to meet the increasing demand of our customers,” says Dr Jochen Kress. The prospects in Querétaro are excellent. In recent years, the region has developed into an important industrial centre for the international automotive and aerospace industry. Mexico is also a strategically important location for the MAPAL Group at international level. The country cooperates with more than 60 countries and has concluded free trade and cooperation agreements with them.
Both in Monterrey and in Querétaro, well-trained employees ensure that MAPAL tools are reconditioned. The machine equipment and manufacturing processes comply with the international standards of the MAPAL Group. “The new site is a fundamental step for us to keep up with the growth in Mexico,” says Lazaro Garzo Sr. Around 50 million pesos, or about 2.3 million euros, went into the construction of the new subsidiary.
