Paulo announces new plant in Monterrey, Mexico
Paulo has begun construction on a greenfield facility in Monterrey, Mexico. The new plant will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017 and processing of heat-treatment will begin in the first quarter of 2018. Paulo will initially occupy 50,000 sqft with expansion up to 110,000 sqft. Monterrey was chosen for its robust manufacturing community with close proximity to major providers of Automotive, Agriculture, Aerospace and other industrial components.
Paulo will continue to add equipment throughout 2018. Initially the plant will serve the Automotive industry, processing parts manufactured in Mexico with the same repeatable and traceable performance customers receive from our existing facilities through the use of our proprietary Production Information and Customer Service system. The Monterrey plant is currently being staffed with local leadership and will be supported by our corporate engineers, metallurgists, quality and operations staff. Paulo will also leverage automation with multiple robotic loading cells to improve safety in material handling while leaning production steps.
Paulo is an industry leader in heat treatment, plating, and coatings. This new plant fulfills a strategic objective to become an international service provider while upholding our mission to help our customers succeed.
