Pacific Insight shifts production work from Canada to Mexico

Pacific Insight, a Vancouver-based manufacturer of electronic components and lighting solutions for the automotive industry, announced it will shift some production work from its plant in Nelson, British Columbia, to another plant in Monterrey, Northern Mexico. 

As part of the decision, there will be some layoffs at the Nelson facility, but the company declined to provide a precise figure, according to reports by local media.

Kristine Walczak, vice president of corporate communications at Pacific Insight’s parent company Methode Electronics, said layoffs are related to the company’s automotive production, and that about 100 people will stay on at the Nelson facility to work on commercial vehicle production.
