TRUMPF has opened a new sales, service, demonstration, and production facility in Monterrey, Mexico. The 6,400-sq.-meter production building uses the company's state-of-the-art equipment and manufacturing techniques to produce frames for its machinery.
The company has invested more than $10 million dollars in the advanced manufacturing facility and sales and application center (including a 420 sq. meter showroom), which is open to Mexican fabricators and manufacturers for tours and technology demonstrations.
"We plan to share our knowledge and expertise with the local fabricating industry with the hope that they too will benefit from the productivity and competitiveness created by our technology," said Claudio Schutz, general manager of TRUMPF Mexico. "High-end technology is an economic multiplier that creates new business opportunities and jobs—not only for our company but also for other companies in the region."
