Japan’s Uchiyama Manufacturing investing $50 million in Mexico

 
Japan's Uchiyama Manufacturing Corp., which supplies plastics products to the automotive, packaging and construction sectors, plans to invest $50 million in a manufacturing facility on Mexico's Yucatán peninsula.

President and CEO Kenzo Uchiyama visited Mexico in July and met with Yucatán Gov. Rolando Zapata Bello before announcing the investment, which will come over five years, the government of the state of Yucatán said in a news release.

Okayama, Japan-based Uchiyama plans to make engine seals and washers at the facility, which will employ 200 workers initially, eventually expanding to 1,000, according to the release.

The Mérida, Mexico, factory will be Uchiyama's second manufacturing plant in the Americas. The company established Uchiyama America Inc. in New Jersey in 1975 before starting manufacturing under the Uchiyama Manufacturing America LLC name in Goldsboro, N.C., in 1997.

Company officials declined to provide more details. Uchiyama supplies the automotive industry with seals and gaskets, the food and beverage industry with packaging materials and polyethylene bottle caps and the building industry with expanded polystyrene and cork insulating materials.

Outside Japan, the company has plants in Portugal, Vietnam, South Korea and China. The company opened a sales office in Guanajuato, Mexico, in 2017.
