Renishaw, headquartered in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, UK, has opened a new facility in Nuevo León, Mexico, which will provide customers with technical support, demonstration and training facilities for Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing, metrology and healthcare products. The company is said to have invested nearly 100 million pesos ($5 million) in the 3200 m2 facility.
With a variety of conference rooms, training rooms, and development labs, the facility is expected to allow companies to work with Renishaw engineers to improve their manufacturing efficiency, and offers demonstration areas to showcase the latest metrology equipment and process control applications, such as advanced scanning, calibration and gauging systems.
“Manufacturing is one of the biggest contributors to Mexico’s economy,” explained Fátima Oyervides, Marketing Manager at Renishaw Mexico. “We originally opened the subsidiary in 2012 and had five employees. Now, to keep up with industry growth in the country, particularly in the automotive and aerospace market, we have grown to a team of forty.”
“As we keep expanding, we will be able to offer more support to local industries. Our facility is not only here to give local support to partners by providing technical help and training; we are also here to educate and support the development of smart manufacturing in Mexico,” she concluded.
