A new plant in Querétaro, Mexico, could help GW Plastics Inc. (Bethel, VT) serve its Latin America–based customers with growing industrial needs. GW provides injection molding for precision tooling, components, and assemblies.

“We already supply to Northern Mexico customers from our plants in San Antonio, TX, or Tucson, AZ,” says Ben Bouchard, vice president of marketing. “This will let us better serve customers in Central Mexico.”

The facility is ISO 9001:2000 certified. Querétaro, a city of 1.5 million people, lies northwest of Mexico City. The plant was built in a new industrial park with state-of-the-art infrastructure, transportation logistics, and aesthetics.

Initial operations will have 25 conventional and insert molding machines. It also has room for value-added assembly operations and the expansion capacity to accommodate 40 machines.

The facility has space for a Class 100,000 cleanroom that will serve the growing medical industry in that region of Mexico.

“We believe this plant is an excellent place to support our customers in Mexico City, Toluca, and Guadalajara,” says Bouchard.

GW also has molding facilities in Bethel and Royalton, VT, San Antonio, and Tucson.
