voestalpine opens two new automotive plants in the booming Mexican market
The Metal Forming Division of the voestalpine Group supplies the automotive industry with ultra high-strength lightweight and safety components from its more than 30 locations around the world. With yesterday’s opening of two new plants in the growing Mexican market, the division is consistently driving its global expansion in this customer segment. At the plant in Aguascalientes where construction started in 2016 after securing a major contract, production of highly complex body-in-white and structural parts has been recently ramped up to full capacity. Due to the high level of demand, capacity will be extended further by 2019. Production of sophisticated automtovie tubular assemblies at the plant in Zacatecas began successfully at the end of 2017.
