Mexico City — Spanish raw materials producer and distributor Delta Tecnic SA has opened a 4.5 million euro ($5.3 million) plant in Querétaro, in central Mexico, coinciding with the launch of its micromasterbatch product.
The company claims to be the first specialist in color concentrates for automotive cable to open a manufacturing operation in Mexico. It has two other plants in Sant Celoni, its home base near Barcelona.
According to an Oct. 7 news release, the micromasterbatch pellet is smaller than normal and thus "improves dilution when extruding cables."
"Our commitment to micromasterbatches is essential to [our] offering a new and sustainable product that can speed up production processes while lowering costs," Delta Tecnic CEO Eric Xirinachs said.
