Multinational company offers 250 new jobs in Yucatán
Mérida, Yucatán.- Falco Electronics, a manufacturer of transformers and electronic components for the energy industry, has opened a plant in Umán, Yucatán, which will help generate 250 jobs.
From the Bodeyuc Industrial Park in the municipality of Umán, Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal and the company’s Operations Director, Justo Fonz Paullada, cut the inaugural ribbon and unveiled a plaque for the opening of this new factory, which would be the company’s sixth plant.
More than 100 million pesos were invested in the factory and the company provides jobs for almost one thousand people, 85% of whom are Yucatecan and 70% are women.
The company, which mostly employs people between 25 and 30 years of age, has a catalog of more than 414 products, which it ships to more than 10 countries around the world.
This company has a presence in China, India, and Italy, and chose the State, specifically the municipality of Umán, for its anchorage in Mexico.
“It is of no use for us to have technological universities and schools if everyone finishes and has to come to Merida, or has to spend every day on transportation and food; therefore, having these companies set up outside Merida helps us a lot and, above all, helps to create a state that is much more equal, much more egalitarian,” said the Governor.
