Schneider Electric invests US$29 million in Monterrey

NUEVO LEON - Schneider Electric, a firm dedicated to the digital transformation of energy management and automation, announced the investment of US$29 million for a new plant in Nuevo León, which is expected to be fully operational in early June.

Named Planta Monterrey 4, the new plant will specialize in the manufacture of low-voltage electrical distribution boards, essential for hospitals, data centers, digital companies and companies with high energy consumption, the company shared in a statement.

Jesús Carmona, president of Schneider Electric's Mexico and Central America Zone, said that the integration of this infrastructure strengthens its commitment to Mexico and Nuevo León, which will create more than 300 new jobs.

He also added that this will be an Engineer-to-Order (ETO) facility, which will allow products to be manufactured according to the specifications and engineering designs of each user, thus taking customization to another level.

"'Monterrey 4' will implement intelligent technology, consolidating our path towards efficiency, industry digitalization and environmental care, both inside and outside our organization," the executive highlighted.

With an initial area of 183,000 square meters, with the potential to expand to 520,000 square meters, 'Monterrey 4' will increase the number of plants that Schneider Electric has in Mexico to 10.

The new plant will strengthen the company's presence and value proposition in Mexico and allow it to increase its collaboration with an extensive community of partners, integrators and developers nationally and internationally.
