Arteche has opened a new factory in Mexico, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of its arrival in the country. The new plant, which occupies almost 10,000 square metres and employs more than 400 people, reaffirms the group's commitment to Mexico.
The new plant has required an investment of close to 45 million pesos (more than €2,000,000) and the dedication of the entire Arteche team. Its opening represents a significant increase in production capacity and makes it possible to incorporate important technological improvements in key processes, as well as the use of automated systems.
Alex Artetxe, CEO of the Arteche Group, emphasised in his speech the effort made by the company in the country in R&D “in many projects undertake here, in collaboration with CFE, with the INEEL, or with the CIMAV.”
This new plant is capable of producing medium and low voltage instrument transformers, reclosers, low voltage banks and filters, and capacitor banks and harmonic filters for medium and high voltage under the highest quality and control standards.
This inauguration is part of an entire project, given that its opening has freed up a lot of space in the plant where the High Voltage instrument transformers are designed and manufactured. The event coincided with the anniversary of the acquisition by Arteche, 25 years ago, of the company Transformadores Y Tecnologías, founded 35 years ago.
The Governor of the State of Hidalgo and the Municipal President of Tepeji del Rio attended the opening ceremony, along with the valued clients of Arteche and a number of its employees.
