GPV Expands Production Capacity in Mexico


Reading time ( words)

GPV has doubled the production capacity at its plant in Mexico with a new state-of-the-art manufacturing line.

"We have made a good start at our new plant in Guadalajara, where we have seen a rapid growth in demand. Hence, we have a decided to accelerate our plans about an expansion of our production capacity, so that we can meet our customers' demand for implementation of new products along with delivery of series production," explains Bo Lybæk, CEO of GPV.

Yesterday, GPV entered into an agreement with the Yamaha distributor Core-EMT concerning the delivery of a complete SMT-manufacturing line (Surface Mount Technology). This means that GPV soon will have a total of 13 SMT-manufacturing lines at its disposal distributed among its plants in Aars, Denmark, Bangkok, Thailand and Guadalajara, Mexico, respectively. Equivalent to five of the other SMT-manufacturing lines, the latest addition will be based on state-of-the-art Industry 4.0 technology, where every element in the manufacturing line is self-regulatory and interacts with one another.

"The demands for high quality and efficient electronics manufacturing are increasing constantly, and today the complexity is at such a high level that each of the individual memory circuits contain hundreds of legs, which need to be assembled automatically. It requires great precision combined with swift and efficient assembly. Therefore, it is critical that we master the latest technology if we want to be counted among the best EMS-companies," Lybæk continues.

Steen V. Haugbølle, CEO of Core-EMT, is delighted with the prospect of expanding the long-standing partnership with GPV even further. Core-EMT is the sole distributor of Yamaha in the Nordic region, and Yamaha has appointed Core-EMT to be responsible for GPV globally together with its own organization.

"We have had an exemplary partnership with GPV through the years, and we are of course glad to see that our services can be used by GPV in Mexico as well. Yamaha is the only manufacturer that can deliver a complete manufacturing line, and we know Yamaha’s products better than anyone else. We are therefore completely confident in our own ability to design and install a solution such as this," Haugbølle explains.

The two CEOs entered into the agreement yesterday, and the new manufacturing line is expected to be in full service in the first quarter of 2018.
