CLINTON, Tenn., October 3, 2016 – Techmer PM announced it will open a production facility in Mexico to provide local service to the growing number of its customers with operations in Mexico and Latin America.
The facility is expected to be operational in the second half of 2017 and will have sufficient capacity to service Mexico and key Latin American markets. It will also enable Techmer PM to support the expansion of automotive companies with operations in Mexico as well as other strategic growth areas.
“Techmer PM has built a strong presence in Mexico over the years as an exporter, and we are excited about the opportunity to further existing customer relationships as well as cultivate new business opportunities locally,” said Ryan Howley, president of Techmer PM.
The Mexico expansion project will be headed by Guillermo Quijano who was recently hired as general manager for Latin American operations. Mr. Quijano has over 20 years of materials design experience in Latin America and will be responsible for establishing the Mexico site and overseeing operations in Mexico and Latin America. His experience includes the successful opening of a greenfield compounding plant in Mexico as well as leading a team as general manager.
“Guillermo’s professional background sets us up well to grow new business and create a best-in-class operation in Mexico,” said Howley.
More details about the location, equipment, and new hires will be communicated later in the planning process.
