Arizona-based North American Interconnect (NAI), a manufacturer of end-to-end connectivity solutions for high performance systems in industrial, telecom, data and medical industries, has announced the opening of its fourth plant in Hermosillo, Sonora, and the expansion of a current plant.
NAI's new 27,000 square foot Plant No. 4 operation is dedicated to the manufacture of copper cable assemblies and harnesses for segments such as Medical Devices and Industrial Technology (IT) sectors.
The new facility is located two miles away from existing plant operations. Production at this site began March 13, 2017, according to a statement by the company.
Some of the existing production lines supporting medical and IT applications, currently located in other plants in Hermosillo, are relocating to the new plant. The manufacturing projects at the new plant facility will undergo the same strict quality processes that presently exist in other NAI manufacturing facilities.
Additionally, NAI’s current Plant No. 2 operation is expanding with an additional 30,000 square feet. This additional space accommodates an expansion of the company’s fiber optic assembly operations for its growing telecom and data customer base.
The company has experienced significant growth in recent years, and is executing an expansion for a 60% increase in sales for 2017.
The new plant, the company’s fourth in Hermosillo, will allow NAI to accommodate this demand by allowing for an increase in space for its current fiber optic and copper assembly and harness operations at its other three existing plants.
Collectively, NAI now has more than 390,000 square feet of manufacturing space at its four plants in Hermosillo, along with an additional 130,000 square feet in Suzhou, China. The company’s total manufacturing footprint is now over 520,000 square feet.
