Canadian automotive parts molder Mitchell Plastics is expanding into Mexico, with the construction of a new manufacturing facility in Queretaro.
The new Queretaro operation, when completed in March 2014, will have 155,000 square feet of manufacturing space for injection molding and painting. Kitchener, Ont.-based Mitchell Plastics expects to create 350 new full-time employment positions when full capacity is achieved. Initial shipments to existing customers begin next spring
"We are very excited to be expanding into Mexico as a result of our continued growth in North America," said Peter Gibb, the company’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The new facility in Queretaro is in an ideal location and will allow us to improve our support to our current customers while opening new opportunities for future growth in Mexico."
