TODCO announced that its new manufacturing facility in Tecate, Mexico, is now fully operational and serving the needs of the firm's western customer base.
"Opening a new plant to improve our service and value to our western customers gave TODCO the opportunity to design a state-of-the-art truck door manufacturing facility," said Dan Rengert, president. "It was designed from the ground up to incorporate the latest in lean enterprise methodology to produce the highest quality doors in the most efficient manner possible."
Timing is also important. While the current truck market conditions reflect the general economic downturn, the transportation industry has traditionally been ahead of the curve in recovery. TODCO has positioned the new plant to meet the future expansion and growth needs for this region.
