Mexico continues to be a country of unique development opportunities, largely the result of impressive business growth in the automotive industry. Mexico has made structural reforms and signed strategic trade agreements that position its economy for strong growth and great potential going forward. Anticipated growth in the auto industry and continued expansion of the Mexican economy in general through 2020 is attracting manufacturers from around the globe.
To prepare for this growth and to ensure that HEXPOL can meet client needs as they grow, HEXPOL continues to invest in Mexico (See Querétaro Open House article). Significant expansion in capacity and capabilities over the past few years at HEXPOL's two campuses in Mexico – Querétaro and Aguascalientes – include the addition of new compound mixing lines that provide a total of 80,000 metric tons per year, including 53,000 from Querétaro and 27,000 from Aguascalientes. That is an impressive 70 percent increase in mixing capacity in five years. As HEXPOL's customers grow, the company is prepared to support their continued success.
