Jatco Mexico Plant 1 builds its 10 millionth CVT transmission
Jatco Mexico Plant 1, located in Aguascalientes, celebrated production of its 10 millionth CVT transmission, twelve years after it started operations as the first Jatco manufacturing facility outside Japan in November 2005.
The company established JATCO Mexico in 2003 as its first overseas manufacturing base, and has been producing Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) since 2005. In 2014 the company opened its second plant in Aguascalientes after a US$ 220 million investment. JATCO Mexico’s current annual production capacity is 1.7 million units.
Efrain Hernandez, director of Nissan Mexicana A1 plant, said Jatco has been distinguished for being a company in constant growth and innovation, so that it has positioned itself as the first supplier in the global scope of CVT technology for a large part of the automotive industry.
Hernandez emphasized that all transmissions in cars assembled in the plants of Nissan in Mexico come from this company.
