Mérida, Yucatán, (January 12, 2022).- Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal inaugurated the second plant of the Chinese company Woodgenix, in Kanasín municipality, after an investment of 15 million US dollars, which contributes to the generation of 400 new sources of formal jobs for Yucatecans across the state.
The international company Woodgenix, dedicated to the manufacture of ready-to-assemble integral kitchens, reaffirms its confidence in Yucatán with the opening of its second plant, in Kanasín, in which 15 million US dollars were invested and that will allow the generation of 400 sources of employment.
In the Sky Park industrial park of this municipality, the new plant of this Chinese capital firm was inaugurated, whose whole production is exported to the United States, and in this context, it was announced that, soon, it will open its third factory, in the municipality of Seyé, which will continue to bring job opportunities to the inhabitants of the state.
Recognizing the support and facilities granted by the State Government for the establishment of this project, the president of the Board of Directors of Woodgenix, Yinan Li, assured that, starting today, the challenge is to develop a production chain related to the Sustainable wood supply, which will provide more jobs and economic development, to continue improving the living conditions and quality of life of Yucatecan families.
“This plant is capable of processing 6,400 sheets of plywood daily, so collaboration is necessary, not only from our workers but from the entire state of Yucatán; we are committed to developing a new industrial cluster, related to the wood industry, which could increase the economic benefit in the state, by 58 million US dollars a year ”, Yinan Li said, in the presence of the Director of Operations of Woodgenix, Guillermo Mena Rodríguez.
In his message, the Governor stressed that one of the priorities of his administration has always been to decentralize employment options for people from all over the state territory. So they do not have to move to Mérida in search of a job opportunity, therefore, with the establishment of firms like these in the different Yucatecan municipalities, men and women can have a well-paid job near their homes and close to their families.
Likewise, Vila Dosal recalled that the generation of first-rate industrial parks, like this one, makes world-class companies see Yucatán as a good option to invest, in addition to the fact that, here, we have legal certainty, respect for the private initiative, joint work and we are, by far, the safest state in the entire country.
Previously, the Governor toured the new plant, accompanied by company executives, where he verified some of the materials and tools used for the production of furniture.
On August 26, 2020, Woodgenix opened its first factory in Yucatán, generating at that time a total of 490 jobs, especially for people from the interior of the state.
