New plant in Querétaro (Mexico) near completion
GOTEC builds another plant in Mexico – the 16th worldwide.
The new plant in Querétaro, Mexico is nearing completion. In May 2020 this almost 6,000m2 large plant will start production. It is located in Parque Industrial Aeropuerto Querétaro – the centre of the Mexican Automotive Cluster industrial area. This strategically chosen location allows short supply chains and fast reaction times of products and services for all of GOTECs customers.
Mexico has long been a popular location for the international automotive industry. Aside from American producers many European producers are committed to this area and contribute with their highly efficient plants. The free trade agreement recently signed with the US and Canada will reinforce this locations competitiveness for many years to come.
GOTECs 16th plant will not only provide the established GOTEC coating process like chain-on-edge coating, round table coating, roll coating and dip&spin coating, but will also offer the production of stamped metal parts. The production will start with up to 400,000 parts per day and will be expanded in the coming years. For the pre-treatment of materials GOTEC offers processes like shot blasting, alkaline degreasing, phosphating as well as Bonderite NT-1. In the course of 2020 GOTEC will add the ZnNi coating process and plans to start the production of injection molded plastic parts in 2021.
In addition to the new production plant GOTEC carefully selects employees and offers professional training to them to guarantee the usual high quality of GOTEC products and services. More than 25 years of experience in personnel planning and training pays of repeatedly for GOTEC. The full use of all production capacities requires approximately 300 employees spread over divisions like production, administration, quality management and delivery.
With this new plant GOTEC will become an important employer for this region. We want to establish ourselves as a reliable partner for all our future employees, for example by investing into social programs. The plant is constructed according to the latest work related insights and offers optimal working conditions for all employees. This includes spacious social environments with a bright and friendly design to make sure everyday work is shaped as pleasant as possible.
