Thermoplastic resins supplier M. Holland opens facility in State of Mexico
M. Holland Company, a distributor of thermoplastic resins, announced the opening of a new break-bulk terminal in Tultitlán, Mexico, near Mexico City.
Located in a secure industrial park, the facility features 80,000-square-feet of modern warehousing space, a separate break-bulk and processing building containing packaging and pulverizing equipment, and newly built headquarters offices for the company’s Latin American operations.
“We consolidated two separate facilities in the Mexico City area into one, highly efficient and perfectly located operation with ample room for our projected growth,” said Xavier Lebrija, Director General of M. Holland Latino América. “In the process, we tripled our resin pulverizing capacity and doubled our bagging capacity.”
The facility can unload two railcars at a time indoors and accommodate up to a dozen railcars on a secure rail spur within the industrial park, with significant additional track storage in an adjacent railyard with daily switching. The amount of investment required for this expansion remained undisclosed.
Its three pulverizing lines have combined annual capacity of about 12 million pounds. It features two bagging lines, including a new high-speed “form, fill, and seal” (FFS) line, with combined capacity to bag up to six railcars per day.
At a grand opening attended by over 200 people, Steve Armstrong, M. Holland’s Global Sales Director, said, “This expansion demonstrates our commitment to Mexico and Latin America. The location allows us to service both domestic and international suppliers and a hub to reach both Mexican and export customers.”
“Our mission is to be to be a trusted partner to both suppliers and customers, many of whom need reliable supply chains in a global marketplace. We’re making the necessary investments to be that reliable channel to market,” added M. Holland CEO Ed Holland.
