Mexico constitutes a major production market within NAFTA and is the second largest supplier of products to the USA. With production sites of ten OEMs and numerous tier-1 suppliers, the automotive industry also holds a strong position in Mexico. In order to more optimally meet the needs of its customers, Frimo Group GmbH, Lotte, Germany, is opening a new production site in Puebla, to add to its European locations, and locations in the Detroit area (USA) and in Shanghai (China).

Until now, Frimo Inc. in Wixom, Michigan, USA, has covered all service activities for the Mexican market. After the foundation was laid in September 2015, a new building featuring a 2,000 m² production hall and 700 m² of office space was completed in record time. The location has already begun operating and will grow to a total of 35 employees over the course of this year, who will produce, refurbish, and maintain tools and systems for the automotive industry. Furthermore, experienced technicians provide emergency services with even quicker response times.

The new Frimo site is located in Puebla, in the heart of Mexico, where a VW plant established in 1964 represents one of the centers for automotive production. The new production site will be established under the direction of Frimo Inc. (Wixom, MI, USA), and is primarily intended to concentrate on local service and expanding the production capacities of the Wixom location. The entire range of Frimo technologies will be available: tools, systems, and complete production solutions for PU processing, flexible trimming, punching, pressing, forming, thermoforming, lamination, edge folding, and joining. Local management will include general manager Sascha Gehrmann and production manager Wolfgang Kleingünther.
