To meet increasing customer demand for copper and copper alloy products in the region, Wieland is opening a new facility in Juarez, Mexico. Production at the 92,000-square-foot facility is expected to begin this month.
The new facility will offer slitting and warehousing of red metals products at the location.
The aim is to provide customers with even more all-round technical expertise in order to further drive their growth in the region. Juárez is located near the main transportation vein that links the United States and Mexico, and therefore brings opportunities for expansion beyond current capabilities in the Querétaro area in central Mexico. The location opens cross-border sales and quickens the turnaround time for orders – all while bolstering productivity, the company claims.
“We are excited to expand our Mexico footprint to Juárez and support the growth of our customers. This expansion complements our existing footprint in Querétaro, and expands Wieland’s geographical reach throughout North America with our vast product portfolio,” says Greg Keown, president, Wieland Metal Services.
As the new site offers room for expansion, there is potential for other complementary Wieland Group business units to also begin production there in the future.
