Following production site, antenna manufacturer Kathrein opens office in Mexico
Antenna systems manufacturer Kathrein just opened a new office in Mexico City to steer future activities in Latin America. The opening was celebrated at an inauguration ceremony with business partners, customers and Kathrein employees, according to a press release.
“The new office is part of a strategy to expand the company’s presence in regional markets,” said the Germany-based company in the statement.
“The new office space in the north-west of Mexico City provides the perfect setting for our team to offer optimum service to our customers in South and Central America,” said Anton Kathrein, CEO of the Kathrein Group.
The new office offers two conference rooms and a multi-functional room, which can be separated flexibly as required. “This provides ample space to present new solutions or conduct trainings for our customers and partners,” explained Rafael Rojo, CEO of Kathrein Latin America. There is also a small lab for carrying out tests and diagnostic inspections. A Kathrein RFID system ensures access control throughout the entire office space.
The new office was opened in Mexico because the country is one of the most important markets in Latin America. The location in the capital city is in the immediate vicinity of important customers from the mobile communications sector.
Last year Kathrein inaugurated a new production location in the state of Tlaxcala.
The 13,000 square meters state-of-the-art production facility established in the Tetla industrial park manufactures antennas for mobile communication. The new location created around 400 jobs in the region.
