In an official event, the CEO of ABIC Group, Taigo Suto, released the information together with the Government of the State of Aguascalientes, represented by Governor Tere Jimenez, as well as the Secretary of Economic Development, Science and Technology, Manuel Alejandro Gonzalez Martinez.

The new plant will generate a total of 260 new direct jobs, of which 200 will be operators and 60 will be managers and engineers. It is expected to start operations in early 2026.
The company is dedicated to the production of aluminum automotive components such as pipes for thermal air conditioning and heating systems for customers such as Marelli and Tesla.
According to the CEO, the decision to invest in Aguascalientes was made due to its proximity to key customers in the state, such as Marelli, and thanks to the nearby supply of qualified suppliers in the Bajio region.
