In the first quarter of this year, El Marques Industrial Park attracted four new companies, mainly from the automotive sector, which meant a total investment for US$9 million and the generation of 150 direct jobs.

According to Edmundo Diaz Saenz, Director, this year is being more thriving and dynamic than 2013 for the industrial complex, since the consolidation of several companies that decided to invest at the state some years ago is expected.

He added that compared to the previous year, in 2014 there have been a larger number of visits from companies that want to establish at Bajio Region.

“The first quarter of the year is an interesting indicator because it has two effects: first, the consolidation of many projects coming from the previous quarter, at year-close; and second a hint of what is to be expected in this new cycle”, he said.

Five more companies are expected to arrive to El Marques Industrial Park before the year is over.
