SRG Global Celebrates Expansion of its Irapuato, Mexico Plant
Warren, Mich., August 24, 2015 – SRG Global, a Guardian company, held an opening ceremony today to celebrate the expansion of its Irapuato, Mexico facility that will support the company’s continuing production of high value coatings on plastics. Company officials were joined by members of the state, local government officials, as well as customer and other community partners to commemorate the occasion.
The expansion added 20,000-square- meters to the existing 21,000-square-meter facility and houses a new state-of-the-art chrome plating line. The line is one of the most modern of its kind for this process, where safety and sustainability have been the driving factors in its design. The new line is expected to push the total number of employees at the facility to approximately 500 people at full production.
“On behalf of SRG Global, I want to thank the local community and the state of Guanajuato for their ongoing support and collaboration on the expansion project,” said Javier Sánchez, Plant Manager of the Irapuato facility.
“The state of Guanajuato has helped make it possible for us to continue creating value for society as well as for the local communities in and around the Irapuato facility. We are equally excited for the opportunity to be able to better support our customers,” said Dave Prater, President and CEO of SRG Global.
The Irapuato facility will continue producing exterior and interior trim assemblies and subsystems for global automakers. Since first starting production in 2012, it has supplied parts for more than 1 million vehicles and is expected to double that figure by end of 2017.
