Germany’s Kern-Liebers, a manufacturer of highly complex strip and wire parts and assemblies has expanded its Mexican production plant in Guadalupe, Nuevo Leon, with an investment of US$10 million.
A press release said that the plant will produce 50 million high-precision parts for the automotive, medical and consumer goods industries, from seat belts and lifelines to tape measures and window springs. The expansion will also create some 300 jobs.
Kern-Liebers has been present in Nuevo León since June 2019, when the first phase of this plant began operating. Due to the growing demand from customers in North America, the company has added 3,387 sq mt of surface area, an expansion of about 50%. Timm Jenisch, senior vice president for North America, said that it is important for Kern-Liebers to be present in North America, the largest commercial market in the world. “We are convinced that Nuevo León is the ideal location to be in this region, due to its geographical location, excellent connectivity and favorable conditions for the industry.”
The company has plants in the U.S. and Mexico that manufacture springs and wires, as well as other products. The ceremony was attended by local officials as well as Dr. Erek Speckert, the company’s CEO and chairman of the Management Board.
