León Plant, Mexico
MPE Mexico (whose official name is Materias Plàsticas Y Elastomeros de México, S.A. de C.V.) is a company 100% owned by MPE Srl.
The company, founded at the end of 2008, today represents the last step of MPE internationalization strategy. It was founded in order to catch the great potential of the growing local market for automotive components suppliers.
The main task of the Mexican subsidiary is to support global customers in the NAFTA and South America market region, with the supply of items for lighting, steering gears, transmissions and shock absorbers. The main components are both injected and blown molded products, such as steering gear bellows and CVJ boots.
The plant is located in the city of León in the state of Guanajuato in central Mexico. Within a radius of 600 kilometers 80% of the population, as well as major customers, both OEMs and Tier 1, are covered. Nowadays the Mexican automotive industry enjoys an excellent health and a proof is that several car manufacturers have already directed their investments toward that market, or plan to do it soon.
The León plant, in addition to the production dept. hosts the Management offices, the Quality Laboratory and Metrology, which constantly interact with the Italian headquarter. Like all the other MPE plants also MPE Mexico is certified ISO / TS 16949.
The constant interaction between the headquarter and the subsidiaries is an appreciated added value that MPE offers to its customers. All the experience gained in over 40 years is transmitted to the rather young foreign production sites. In this way, the benefits of localized production, as well as logistics, meet the established industrial tradition.
