Kostal installs technology and administration center in Querétaro

QUERETARO - Kostal, an automotive electronics company, inaugurated the new Kostal Technology & Administration Center (KTAC), where it will develop electronic components for the four Kostal North America plants it operates in Mexico.

This space integrates 2,000 square meters on four floors, where the company's administrative activities will be carried out, in addition to three laboratories specialized in prototyping, software validation and power electronics development.

The power electronics lab responds to increased market demand, which is reflected in the operation of the Kostal Electro Mobility Mexicana (KEMM) plant that the firm opened in 2023 to manufacture the fourth generation of on-board chargers (OBC).

"The new center is a state-of-the-art facility to promote the creativity and professional development of employees," said Kostal North America CEO Harry Asher.

KTAC will employ 125 engineers at the beginning of its operations, but is expected to employ 135 by the end of this year; it will also house 75 administrative workers.

With this new unit, the company relocates its administration and product development activities in the state, which are currently shared with manufacturing activities at the Santa Rosa Jáuregui plant in the Querétaro Industrial Park, to the Centro Capital Juriquilla building.

According to the company, this new facility reaffirms its commitment to local talent, as well as taking advantage of the state's potential as an emerging pole in the development of technologies for the automotive sector.
