Information by Guanajuato’s Ministry of Sustainable Development revealed that the Company will employ 60 people in the first stage.

The company currently has presence in the United States, France, Germany, Thailand, China, India and Indonesia.

“The plant in Silao is the company’s first in Mexico and third in North America; construction is expected to be completed by February 2014, to start operating the following August”, Franco Herrera Sanchez, Deputy Secretary, Investments Attraction with the Ministry of Sustainable Development, pointed-out.

Mr. Herrera further said that in the current Administration 21 investment projects have materialized, representing investment for over US$1 billion.

Usui’s arrival strengthens Guanajuato’s automotive cluster, one of the most dynamic and fastest growing in America.

Ground was broken last Tuesday in a ceremony attended by Usui’s executives and State Government officers.

Usui started operations in 1941 in Nagasawa and they are devoted to producing several automobiles components.
