Arburg opens new building for its Mexican subsidiary

Germany-based injection moulding machine maker Arburg recently inaugurated a new building to relocate its Mexican subsidiary to Querétaro, in central Mexico, in one of the emerging regions of the country, with a growing industrial infrastructure and a high standard of living.

These factors played a significant role in the selection of this city for construction of the new building to house the subsidiary. The new site is also located in close proximity to many customers and is well connected to other parts of the country and to Mexico City via motorways. Querétaro offers all the comforts of city life, without the traffic and cost issues of the huge metropolis that is Mexico City.

Construction work began in early December 2012, and the company was able to move into the new premises in April 2013 in preparation for the inauguration celebrations. The showroom, with a floorspace of some 215 sq m, offers space for five Allrounder injection moulding machines. In addition to presentations of the latest Arburg technology, mould prototyping and training will therefore pose no problems. Thanks to a flexible partition wall, the training area can be opened up in order to seat around 30 people. Moreover, the 620 sq m of usable floorspace also includes a well-stocked spare parts store, a workshop, offices and a canteen.

The staff has grown from six employees in 2008 to 14 today. By the end of the year, the team will count 16 members and will then be complete. The steady growth of the customer base is continuing. Many companies have grown significantly – particularly those which produce for the automotive industry or manufacture technical parts. Demand for injection moulding machines and services has risen accordingly. At first, the industry wanted only basic machines without special equipment. Today, faster and also more energy-efficient Allrounders are in demand. And half of these are equipped with robotic systems.
