Mexican manufacturer Rassini will supply brakes for new Audi plant
Mexican manufacturer Rassini recently started supplying components to assemble the Audi model Q5. In order to achieve that goal the company invested US$35 million to expand its facilities.
Hector Galvan Venegas, General Director of Rassini, explained to El Economista that nearly 600,000 pieces will be produced each year to serve the Audi plant in Puebla. Galvan Venegas also stated that the factory’s expansion will help to increase the total production, shifting from 130,000 to 200,000 tons per year.
With the new foundry area, new machining and painting lines, 180 new direct jobs were created, in addition to the 1,300 current staff members. Rassini exports 90% of its production to the U.S., Canada and Europe, while the rest is commercialized in automotive plants located in Mexico.
Maserati, Nissan, Ford, General Motors, Volkswagen and FIAT-Chrysler are some of its clients.
