“Viva México!” – HARTING celebrates success in Silao

Facility almost quadruples in size in a mere six and a half years: The HARTING Technology Group has just opened in its new production site and offices in Silao/Mexico.

It’s only six and a half years since the opening ceremony for the company’s first production facility in Silao. Since then, the HARTING Technology Group’s subsidiary in the west-central region of the state of Guanajuato in Mexico has seen many developments. It all started for the national subsidiary in 2016 with a site measuring 1,200 square metres and accommodating some 50 employees. The sales team also moved into an office complex in the capital Mexico City. The objective was to expand the company’s market position in North and Central America, focusing on its proximity to customers.

Celebrating the official opening of the extension: Ramón Alfaro Gómez, Secretary of Sustainable Economic Development, Pedro Gutierrez, Plant Manager HARTING Mexico Manufacturing; Andreas Conrad, Operations Director at the HARTING Technology Group; Diego Sinhue Rodríguez Vallejo, Governor of Guanajuato, Jon DeSouza, CEO HARTING Americas, Florian Stützel, COO HARTING Americas and Silao’s Mayor Carlos Garcia Villaseñor (from left to right).

“The anticipated potential for growth was confirmed and leading automakers and automotive suppliers in Mexico also opened their own production plants. This meant we had and still have our finger on the pulse of these vital markets to us at a local level”, explains Andreas Conrad, Operations Director at the HARTING Technology Group.  “We are now systematically pursuing this successful strategy in Central America.” The figures speak for themselves. The family enterprise from Espelkamp now guarantees the winning quality and reliability of the HARTING brand based on a facility offering 4,300 square metres of production plant and office space with 255 employees.
