PREH is a German company, with Chinese capital, which has been in the automotive sector for more than 30 years and has a presence in more than 100 locations in 30 countries, with more than 50 thousand employees around the world. It is one of the 30 largest global firms in the automotive supply chain industry.
Mérida, Yucatán, (October 15, 2021).- During a meeting with Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal, executives of the German company PREH, from the automotive sector, expressed a possible interest in establishing themselves in Yucatán to take advantage of the knowledge and talent of Yucatecan professionals in that area, a statement reported.
As part of the commercial mission that Vila is leading through Europe to reactivate investments and attract new development projects for the state, Vila Dosal is in Germany after a working tour in Italy, where he held a meeting with the CEO of the German company, Zhengxin Charlie Caí and the executive directors of Development Process, Jochen Ehrenberg and Electronic Development, Norbert Baue.
He agreed with them that in the coming weeks they would visit Yucatán to learn about the quality of the state’s universities and the level of graduates.
The project is to establish an engineering development center for the automotive sector in the state, which would be the first of its kind in Southeast Mexico, in which 300 sources of employment for engineers would be generated, which would start gradually.
According to what has been proposed, the project is of great interest because it does not focus on technical workers, but on designers of artificial intelligence and electronics to apply in advanced new generation vehicles.
