La Laguna Automotive Cluster under expansion
The development of a regional automotive cluster, from North Coahuila to Durango, will drive the development of local supply chain that has been under continuous growth, according to Jose Luis Hotema, President of the Laguna region cluster. Jose Rodriguez, elected Governor of Durango, established commitments with the purpose of achieving synergy with companies from this productive sector in Coahuila, as it has several competitive advantages, such as better connectivity and good human capital. There is a plan to incorporate companies from Durango into the Laguna cluster, in order to strengthen the hub of companies made up by 25 international firms and over 100 small and medium business, manufacturers or suppliers of services for automotive companies. These businesses are located in the Municipalities of Matamoros, Francisco I. Madero, Torreon and San Pedro, in Coahuila; as well as Lerdo and Gomez Palacio, in Durango.
