In 1998, our Chihuahua Division opened primarily to service customers in Juarez. Since then, the operation has grown to service customers throughout Mexico, the United States, United Kingdom and Asia. Our facility offers 210 000 square feet of manufacturing space, and through recent lean initiatives, the operation is well-positioned for additional customers and growth.
One of the aspects of this division that makes it so unique is its geographic location. We service many U.S. corporations that operate in Mexico who need quality die cast solutions. By providing products to clients who are geographically close, we are able to execute a localization strategy that allows us to manufacture high-quality parts at an affordable cost.
Our Chihuahua Division capabilities include machining, simple drill and tap operations to complex CNC operations. We also offer finishing operations including trimming, deburring, shot blasting, painting, chromating, impregnating and more. Value add services include fully machined and assembled components, providing customers a complete solution. With these capabilities, we serve in the automotive, telecommunications, lighting, electrical and industrial controls industries.
The education assistance provided at our Chihuahua Division is what sets this facility apart. In the past 5 years, we provided assistance to allow 60+ people to earn their High School diplomas, approximately 40 people to earn a Bachelor's Degree and some to achieve a Masters of Business Administration. "An investment in associates is paramount, and that includes a commitment to training and education," said Doug Walker, Executive VP of Operations in Chihuahua.
Our excellent management team at the Chihuahua Division is constantly working to provide uncommon solutions to our customers. Working together with our customers, we can help develop die casting designs that satisfy functionality and castability requirements and exceed expectations.
