Troy, Michigan — Inoac USA plans to build an automotive interiors and foam plant in the central Mexico state of Queretaro, president and coo Chuck Little said.
In a 12 July speech in San Juan del Rio, 105 miles (about 170 km) northwest of Mexico City, Little said the company had purchased 17.2 acres (7 ha) of land in the municipality and would “probably start construction” of a factory in 2017.
“Right now we are in very preliminary planning for the project, which will be implemented in several phases over multiple years depending, of course, on actual business conditions and success in that market,” Little told UTECH-polyurethane.com by email in response to a request for more information.
Inoac already operates five manufacturing facilities in Mexico, most of them in the Monterrey metropolitan area of northern Mexico.
Troy, Michigan-based Little, who is responsible for Inoac’s business in North America, revealed his firm’s plans for Mexico at the opening of a $45 million injection moulding plant, built in San Juan del Río by ABC Inoac Exterior Systems.
