LIMA, OH - MetoKote Corp. has opened its newest facility in San
Luis Potosí, Mexico. This is the eighth facility in Mexico for MetoKote, which
has a total of 38 facilities across North America, South America and Europe.
MetoKote located the facility in the San Luis Potosí area
because of the rapid growth in this region and the strong demand for coatings. This
central region of Mexico, referred to as Bajio and Altiplano areas, is within a
two-hour radius of industrial cities such as Queretaro, Aguascalientes
Irapuato, Leon and Silao.
The plant currently operates one high-production electrocoat
monorail line with a part envelope of 36” x 48” x 72”. The line is designed to coat small-to-medium-sized
parts with a turnaround time of 24 hours or less. The facility also offers
light assembly, special packaging for automotive spare parts, labeling and
inventory tracking of customer parts. When at full capacity, the company will
employ approximately 50 employees.
