“Leoni’s presence in Yucatán means new horizons; a presence that confirms that Yucatan can look higher and move forward. Yucatan has always been considered a triumphant land, a land of champions, and that is why we are very proud to host a great world champion of the economy such as Leoni,” said Yucatan Governor Rolando Zapata Bello at the factory’s inauguration.

The inaugural ceremony was headed by the Secretary of Economy, Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal; the vice president of the Cable Systems Division, Ralf Maus, and  Zapata Bello, in the presence of local business leaders and employees of that plant.

During the ceremony, it was explained that the enterprise has a sustainable approach, equipping its new factory with more than 1,500 solar panels, which will provide approximately one third of the total energy. In addition, the location in Merida uses a system of recycled water, which results in a daily reduction of the purified water required of almost one hundred thousand liters.

The plant will manufacture harnesses for passenger cars for customers in the United States and Asia.

Ralf Maus said that they chose Yucatan for their fifth Mexican plant because of the state’s logistics infrastructure, security, education, highly qualified human capital and the government’s facility in negotiations.

This plant will export from the Progreso Port to the production plants of General Motors, BMW and Volvo in Asia, Mexico and the United States.
