Mexico City — Haitian International has finished construction of a manufacturing plant in western Mexico and is now decorating and equipping the facility, a senior company official said March 30.
The 290,625-square-foot factory will produce Haitian machines for Mexico, Central America and some countries in South America.
José Barroso, a director of Haitian Huayuan Mexico Machinery S. de R.L. de C.V., said the project is on schedule, and an open house is being planned.
According to the Haitian Mexico website, Ningbo, China-based Haitian aims to produce 1,000 injection molding presses with a maximum clamping force of 530 metric tons a year at the plant.
It stands on nearly 25 acres in Acatlán de Juárez, 30 miles south of the city of Guadalajara, and includes a four-story office block. The site was chosen because of its strategic location close to the Pacific coast port of Manzanillo, with rapid access by road to major industrial zones across Mexico.
Once up and running, it will be the first mass injection molding machinery manufacturing factory in Mexico.
In 2019, Haitian celebrated its first 20 years of selling presses in Mexico. It has sold in excess of 3,200 to about 600 customers. It employs 28 service engineers in Mexico and operates four regional service centers in addition to a 24,756-square-foot distribution center in Mexico City.
