Variosystems Expands in Mexico


Reading time ( words)

Variosystems is constantly looking for new ways to provide complete flexibility to its customers. With the 2020 pandemic, the tariffs on China products and the high intercontinental transport costs, it became clear that there was a need for a North-American high volume facility able to support labor intensive assemblies. 

Juarez, Mexico was selected as the company's 7th production facility. This new addition is a great opportunity for customers to bring production closer, minimizing tariffs and reducing lead times, while keeping an aggressive cost structure.

This 70,000 ft2  facility will support electronic assembly, system integration and potentially wire harness production. Harmonization being at the forefront of our long term vision, all processes, software tools and critical equipment will be identical to our other facilities, providing redundancy and ease of product transfer.

The production is expected to start by Q3 2021 and will employ over 250 skilled operators, engineers and supervisors by 2024.
