Fabrication machinery company Trumpf has opened a new sales, service, demonstration and production facility in Monterrey, Mexico.

The facility will use Trumpf equipment and manufacturing techniques to produce frames for Trumpf machinery.

“A new production building built in the Apodaca Technology Park is a testament to the long history and bright future of Monterrey in the Mexican metal industry,” said Claudio Schutz, general manager of Trumpf Mexico. “The project shows Trumpf’s long-term commitment to the local growth and success of customers in Mexico.”

The company has invested more than $10 million dollars in the advanced manufacturing facility, and sales and application center, which is open to Mexican fabricators and manufacturers for technology demonstrations and tours. Trumpf equipment is used by manufacturers and sheet metal fabricators to make products for the automotive, aerospace, agricultural, medical, electronics and other industries.

“We plan to share our knowledge and expertise with the local fabricating industry with the hope that they too will benefit from the productivity and competitiveness created by our technology,” said Schutz. “High-end technology is an economic multiplier that creates new business opportunities and jobs - not only for our company but also for other companies in the region.”

“This new facility in Mexico strengthens our position in North America. The production facility also gives our Mexican customers the confidence that we are here and will remain here in the long term,” said Peter Leibinger, vice chairman of the Trumpf Group managing board and head of Trumpf’s laser and electronic division. “Trumpf Mexico is part of the Trumpf Group’s international manufacturing operations and, accordingly, is held to the same quality requirements and world-class standards.”
