More Roads in Town and Stan, Inc.
By Antonio De Jesús Aguado
The new road to Alcocer will benefit more than 3,000 families, setting the tone for construction of another road from Alcocer to carretera a Querétaro.
Governor Miguel Márquez and Mayor Mauricio Trejo cut the ribbon for the improved 4.2 kilometers of road to go from El Caracol to Alcocer, offering alternative exits for families in neighborhoods like Los Santos, Insurgentes, Itzquinapan, and rural communities such as Alcocer. The federal government made an investment of 12 million pesos for the road, whose improvement started in December 2012, when the access from El Caracol to it was constructed. It will have an impact on those families that previously had only the exit to the boulevard de la Conspiración. Mayor Trejo announced that now that the works on this road have ended, he will start the process to get resources for construction of a new road from Alcocer to the traffic circle of the Conspiración (in front of the city hall).
The work for improving the road to Corral de Piedras began on the same day. The investment will be 11.5 million pesos. More than 8 kilometers will be restored on the road, which connects with the road to Querétaro and crosses near the industrial zone.
Miguel Márquez announced during the inauguration of this event that the first company in industrial park, for which construction began last month, has attracted more than 100 million US to be invested in its construction.
Stan, Inc., said the governor, will occupy more than five hectares in its first phase and will generate the employment that San Miguel needs with 600 jobs. Márquez said in addition that in three years the park will be totally constructed. According to its web page, Stan, Inc. is a recognized world leader in the design and manufacturing of Vapor management systems, fuel delivery systems, thermal management systems, and engineering services. As a leading manufacturer of closure caps, on-board vapor recovery components, and engine and transmission cooling components, Stan, Inc. has cultivated its market-leading position by capitalizing on its wide-ranging experience and capability to provide its customers with innovative solutions for challenging applications. The company focuses on three markets and three product line segments: automotive OEM, industrial, and after market.
Márquez remarked that his next commitment in San Miguel is to finish the construction of the Community Center of Cuevitas. On this topic, Trejo commented that once the audit of the construction of the new slaughter house is ended, the current slaughter house will leave the current building, and there will be more space for it.
