Trelleborg opens automotive facility in Mexico


Trelleborg A.B.'s sealing profiles operation has inaugurated a manufacturing facility in Queretaro to supply to automotive customers and serve as a Central American hub.

The site, which covers about 13,500 square feet, will produce high-performance extruded sealing profiles, such as control cable protector tubes and other critical automotive sealing components, the Swedish rubber group said in a news release.

The production site is part of Trelleborg's long-term strategy to invest in markets with "favorable growth potential," and is expected to supply to Tier 1 automotive customers in both North and South America.

"Querétaro was carefully selected for our manufacturing site as it is one of the fastest growing automotive clusters in Mexico," Hector Angeles, manager of the Mexican facility, said in a statement.

The Trelleborg Group has a number of facilities and sales offices in Mexico—in Aguascalientes, Monterrey, Mexico City, Querétaro, Silao and Tijuana. The company employs about 500 at its Mexican locations and generated about $316.5 million of revenue in 2017.

Trelleborg's sealing profiles operation, part of the Trelleborg Industrial Solutions business unit, is a supplier of extruded profiles to the construction and automotive industries.


One of the services American Industries offers, for international companies, is Site Selection in México. Some key factors to consider, for regional Site Selection, are: proximity to customer base, business and political environment, labor and demographics, academic infrastructure, quality of life, geography and climate, infrastructure, accessibility and connectivity, and supply base.
