To support a nearby Hyundai/Kia facility, Michigan-based fluid systems giant TI Automotive recently opened a new plant in Monterrey, Mexico, creating approximately 100 local jobs at full production capacity to supply key vehicle components.
The 53,000-square-foot facility produces brake, fuel and clutch parts and will also be engineered to handle water,
oil and vacuum tubes, transmission lines and pipes for exhaust gas reduction.
"Mexico is a growing automotive market for our customers and this new facility supports our global growth strategy of going where our customers need us," TI Automotive Chairman, CEO and President Bill Kozyra said. "We have enjoyed a great partnership with Hyundai/Kia all over the world for many years and we look forward to mutual continued success here in Monterrey."
TI Automotive already has nine plants in Mexico, located in Mexico City, Puebla, Reynosa and San Luis Potosi. With the addition of the Monterrey production site, the company is geared to increase production in anticipation of staying at the forefront of fluid systems technology.
