Paulo Expands Monterrey Division to Support Automotive Industry
Paulo’s newest division in Monterrey, Mexico began full processing operations in 2018. The location was chosen to provide services to one of Mexico’s most prominent manufacturing hubs, and the need for precision heat treatment in the area is continuing to grow. The facility was opened with 50,000 square feet of processing space, and Paulo has just announced plans to double it in size to meet strong demand from the automotive industry for the heat treatment of brake components in passenger cars and trucks.
The expansion will include the addition of four new furnaces, which will create significantly higher capacity for ferritic nitrocarburizing and stress relieving. It will also create job opportunities for several positions including operators, maintenance, and general plant labor.
“With this expansion, our strategic plan to eventually double the Monterrey division in size is coming to fruition,” said Will Rassieur, Paulo’s VP of Sales. “It’s great to see the automotive sector bouncing back and we are proud to be able to support it.”
This full-scale expansion comes in addition to the recent launch of Vacuum Heat Treating and Brazing capabilities, to support tool and die, automotive, and aerospace customers.
Aldo Rodriguez, General Director, added, “It is very encouraging to see this strong growth in 2021 and beyond, only 2 years after we started operations in Mexico. The outlook of the business is very positive and we are ready to take on this challenge with such a brilliant and professional team.”
Construction on the new expansion has begun, and the new furnaces will begin production in the third quarter of 2021. For more information on how to partner with Paulo, please contact us.
