Dürr is expanding its capacities in the North American market with a new business location in Querétaro, Mexico, that will house about 280 employees and provide 50 percent more production and office space than the past location.
"The new plant in Querétaro represents a key mainstay to be able to give the automotive industry even more effective support with its expansion drive in North America," says Ralf W. Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG. “In view of growing sales numbers, the automotive industry in the U.S. and Mexico is increasingly investing in new factories and in modernizing existing production plants.”
Dürr de México was founded in 1966, and supplied almost all carmakers represented in Mexico with painting technology and other production equipment. For a number of years now, Dürr de México has also participated in handling orders placed by the aircraft industry.
The U.S. company, Dürr Systems Inc., and Dürr de México are run by a shared management team.
The construction of the new location in Querétaro in central Mexico is part of a global investment program with which Dürr adjusts its capacities in response to the growing volume of business. At the end of September, the Group commissioned a new mechanical engineering location with more than 600 employees in Shanghai. Dürr has also invested in newbuilds or in modernizing locations in Germany, South Africa, Poland, Brazil, and Switzerland. In Japan, a technology center with demonstration facilities is to be built in the near future.
