Engineering giants Renishaw have opened a new facility in Mexico.

Located in the state of Nuevo León, the new building was formally opened back in May.

It includes conference rooms, training rooms, and development labs.

Andrew Morris, the British Consulate, Américo García, the secretary of industry and commerce in Nuevo León and Leo Somerville, President of Renishaw's Americas region, officially opened the new building.

"Manufacturing is one of the biggest contributors to Mexico's economy,” explained Fátima Oyervides, marketing manager at Renishaw Mexico.

“We originally opened the subsidiary in 2012 and had five employees. Now, to keep up with industry growth in the country, particularly in the automotive and aerospace market, we have grown to a team of 40.”

“As we keep expanding, we will be able to offer more support to local industries. Our facility is not only here to give local support to partners by providing technical help and training, we are also here to educate and support the development of smart manufacturing in Mexico.”
