The German group Bosch, manufacturer of automotive equipment, announced its intention to reinforce its presence in Mexico, with the creation of about 3,000 jobs in the short term, said Rene Schlegel, representative of Bosch in Mexico.
He also underscored the potential of this country: it is ranked 7° vehicle producer worldwide and 4° global exporter in the automotive sector.
According to the Mexican Association of Car Producers (AMIA), over 5 million vehicles will be produced in 2020, compared to the 3 million units produced in 2015.
Bosch is planning to invest roughly $102 million this year in its San Luis Potosi and Aguascalientes plants.
