With the output of this branch the company will supply its customers in Mexico, the US, Japan, Indonesia and Thailand. Production is scheduled to start in April 2013.
Governor Márquez commented that with the construction of this company “Guanajuato is being consolidated as the most important automotive cluster in Latin America.” He also said, “Today, Dolores is part of the transformation in the state; for the first time an international company is being sited in this city.” Márquez highlighted that with the attraction of investments such as this jobs and growth are generated in the state.
Yuji Yasui, president of GSW, thanked the state government for its support of the company, which he said will improve the quality of life for families in the region.
