Banner Engineering has announced the opening of its new production plant at Millennium Industrial Park in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, which is projected to generate approximately 150 to 200 new jobs when fully built out.
According to Banner Engineering, the new facility features 30,000 square feet of production space and 10,000 square feet of office space. It is designed to accommodate future growth with the ability to expand to 60,000 square feet.
Banner first began operations in Mexico in 2010 in San Pedro Garza Garcia in Nuevo Leon, and has since established regional sales offices in Mexico City and Queretaro, with a distribution center in Monterrey.
“Our continued investment in superior manufacturing and customer service operations will better serve the growing Mexico market, the Americas and Banner’s global support network,” said Andy Barnauskas, vice president of operations at Banner Engineering. “A commitment to future growth in the manufacturing and industrial automation industries allows our distribution and sales team worldwide to deliver unprecedented service with increased product selection and fast turnaround.”
The grand opening of the San Luis Potosi production plant was held on Feb. 9. The new facility in San Luis Potosi will manufacture several of Banner’s industrial products, including lights, safety, sensors and others.
