Elgin, IL/Mexico City, July 22, 2016 - Following a record breaking fiscal year in 2015, HARTING North America has expanded by opening a sales office as well as a manufacturing facility in Mexico. “The current economic conditions in Mexico offer enormous potential for HARTING,” said Jon DeSouza, President and CEO of HARTING North America at the Grand Opening in Mexico. “This is exemplified by the country’s expansion of their railway system, which indicates strong growth now and for the future in the transportation and machinery market – incidentally two of HARTING’s largest vertical markets.”
The sales office and manufacturing facility are an important step forward in HARTING’s strategy enabling them to better support their North American customers.
