NAI announced the opening of a new manufacturing plant in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. This facility will produce interconnect devices, including cable assemblies, harnesses, and box builds.
The primary purpose of this new facility in Saltillo is to provide local support to NAI’s existing and new customers in the nearby region, as well as to improve logistics with closer proximity.
An equally important purpose of this investment by NAI is to create manufacturing flexibility in Mexico, including the ability to create dual capacity in multiple plant locations. This new dual sourcing capability offers customers an alternative to maintain continuity of supply during challenges such as the Covid-19 pandemic.
According Jon A. Jensen, President and CEO of NAI, “NAI has a strong track record of supporting our customers with local manufacturing and engineering support around the world. We are uniquely able to offer flexibility and dual capacity with our manufacturing locations, as well as make investment decisions and deploy new initiatives quickly. Global supply chains are changing rapidly due to the recent pandemic. We recognize our customers’ demand for stable and continuous supply.”
The new Saltillo plant is located in La Angostura Industrial Park at Carretera Saltillo Zacatecas Km 4.5, Saltillo, Coahuila 25316, and will occupy nearly 38,000 square feet, with an option to double capacity.
The products that will be produced in this facility serve our core markets of industrial, medical and telecom providers. Several hundred SKUs will be initially transferred to this Saltillo plant and set up for immediate production. Operations are scheduled to begin on February, 2021.
Mr. Jensen also said, “We welcome our new teammates to the NAI family as the Saltillo facility ramps up with production operators, engineers, managers and other support staff.”
