Sweden-based manufacturer Dometic AB to open a new plant in Mexico by March
Dometic AB, a Sweden-based manufacturer of cooling systems and air conditioners for trucks and recreational vehicles, will open a plant in Mexico in response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade war on China.
The company, which gets 57% of its sales in the Americas, aims to open the Mexico plant in March and is moving some production from China to evade new tariffs, Chief Executive Officer Juan Vargues said in an interview to Bloomberg.
The company will keep its Chinese plants busy by moving some output of goods not on the tariff list from the U.S. to China. The Mexico plant, whose location remained undisclosed, is part of a broader review that the CEO said will lead to closing some of its 28 production facilities worldwide.
