Haldex Commercial Vehicle Systems will further expand the Monterrey, Mexico, facility by moving all production activities from the Iola, Kansas, manufacturing facility.
Monterrey is well-suited for this expansion since it has been the primary brake actuator production facility since 2002 and recently expanded production by moving into a new 200,000-square-foot facility. The Monterrey plant is located in a region of increasing significance for the North American automotive industry and has recently undergone an investment program.
“The investment in the Monterrey facility will significantly increase operational efficiencies and enable Haldex to better meet our North American commercial vehicle customer requirements,” said Jay Longbottom, Executive Vice President and Head of Commercial Vehicle Systems.
The relocation of production will occur during the third and fourth quarters of this year without service interruption. This action results from the need to consolidate and improve activities that have been brought into Haldex through past acquisitions. Investing in one site utilizes capital and human resources more effectively.
Haldex customers will be notified regarding the transfer of production between facilities.
