To support its rapidly growing customer base, Renishaw has opened a new facility in Nuevo León, Mexico. The building, which was formally opened on May 8th, 2019, provides customers with technical support, demonstration and training facilities for the company’s innovative products in metrology, healthcare and additive manufacturing.
Renishaw invested nearly 100 million pesos (5 million US Dollars) in the 3200 m² facility to help manufacturers in Mexico become more efficient and profitable. The new facility has a variety of conference rooms, training rooms, and development labs to allow companies to work with Renishaw engineers to improve efficiency in areas such as metrology, additive manufacturing and motion control. It also has demonstration areas to showcase the latest metrology equipment and process control applications, such as advanced scanning, calibration and gauging systems.
At the inauguration, clients, engineers and press met with Alejandro Silva; Andrew Morris, the British Consulate; Américo García, the Secretary of Industry and Commerce in Nuevo León; and Leo Somerville, President of Renishaw’s Americas region, who all officially opened the facility. After the inauguration, Renishaw hosted a networking event and an Industry 4.0 conference to show visitors how they can collaborate to support industry growth.
Fátima Oyervides, Marketing Manager at Renishaw Mexico explains: “Manufacturing is one of the biggest contributors to Mexico’s economy. We originally opened the subsidiary in 2012 and had five employees. Now, to keep up with industry growth in the country, particularly in the automotive and aerospace market, we have grown to a team of 40.
“As we keep expanding, we will be able to offer more support to local industries. Our facility is not only here to give local support to partners by providing technical help and training; we are also here to educate and support the development of smart manufacturing in Mexico.”
Renishaw has provided advanced manufacturing equipment to global partners in the automotive and aerospace industries for over 45 years. This facility in Mexico is one of many Renishaw subsidiaries that are located across 36 countries.
