Cummins lures suppliers to shift production work from Brazil, India and China to Mexico
Indiana-based diesel engines manufacturer Cummins is on talks with suppliers from Brazil, India and China aimed to bring more manufacturing operations and, subsequently, more regional content to Mexico in order to meet new criteria from the NAFTA replacement, USMCA.
Vicepresident of Cummins Latin America, Ignacio García, revealed in a recent interview to Notimex that those three countries supply most components that come from outside the North American region.
The executive added that although both Canada and the United States seek to attract these new investments, Mexico remains the most viable option.
From Brazil, the company imports machined forgings, crankshafts, castings, cylinders, among others, while components bought in China and India include steering wheel covers, pistons and rings, among others.
