Danfoss Mexico expands its plant in Apodaca

APODACA, NL - Executives from the Danish company Danfoss, together with state government officials, made a special visit to the Danfoss Monterrey plant, located in the municipality of Apodaca, where they are carrying out a 40,000 square meter expansion to meet the growing demand from Mexico's domestic market.

The country also plays a key commercial role for Danfoss, as it acts as a supply center to produce energy-efficient solutions for the U.S. market.

Kim Fausing, president and CEO of Danfoss; Jürgen Fischer, president of the Danfoss Climate Solutions segment; and Astrid Mozes, president of Danfoss regions, accompanied Iván Rivas Rodríguez, state secretary of Economy; César Garza, mayor of Apodaca and Julio Molinari, regional president Danfoss Latin America, on a tour of the plant expansion.

The plant expansion project will be in a position to offer an estimated annual production capacity of 100,000 units of compressors used in HVAC applications, 1.6 million pressure sensors and leak detection sensors A2L, used in many industrial processes.

Julio Molinari, regional president of Danfoss Latin America, said that Mexico is undoubtedly the Latin American country with the greatest growth potential for Danfoss in the short term.

"Today, Danfoss Mexico has the largest presence of any country in the region and is one of the top five countries worldwide for Danfoss in terms of personnel," he pointed out.

Danfoss' business in the country is shaped by megatrends including climate change, urbanization, water and food supply, digitalization and electrification.
