ABIC invest in new plant in Aguascalientes
AGUASCALIENTES – ABIC Group, the Japanese auto firm, has unveiled plans for a fresh infusion of $11 million to establish a plant for manufacturing aluminum parts in Pabellón de Arteaga, Aguascalientes. This marks ABIC Group’s second manufacturing facility in Mexico, following the establishment of a plant in Salamanca, Guanajuato, back in 2015.
In an official ceremony, ABIC Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Taigo Suto, made the announcement in collaboration with the Government of Aguascalientes, represented by Governor Tere Jimenez, and accompanied by Manuel Alejandro Gonzalez Martinez, the Secretary of Economic Development, Science, and Technology.
ABIC operates as a Tier 2 supplier with over seven decades of experience in the automotive sector. The company maintains three production facilities in Japan, two in China, and one in Guanajuato, amassing an impressive annual revenue of $40 million. The forthcoming plant is projected to create 260 fresh job opportunities, encompassing 200 operator roles as well as 60 managerial and engineering positions. Commencement of operations is anticipated to take place in early 2026.
The firm specializes in the fabrication of aluminum automotive components, including tubes designed for thermal air conditioning and heating systems. Among its clientele are prominent names like Marelli and Tesla.
According to the CEO, the decision to invest in Aguascalientes was primarily driven by its strategic proximity to key clients within the region, notably Marelli, and the availability of skilled suppliers within the Bajio locale. Additionally, this move aligns with ABIC Group’s commitment to fortify its presence in the thriving automotive market.
