Automotive interiors supplier Leon Interiors announced a US$ 1 million investment to add a headliners production line in its Saltillo facility. Around 50 jobs will be created along with this expansion.
The new line is scheduled to start operations by the end of year. Total workforce at the facility will increase to 350 by then, Company officials said to local media.
The facility supplies armrests and center consoles for Ford Motor Co., while the new headliners output will be delivered to GM.
Leon Interiors, a division of Michigan-based Motus Integrated Technologies, operates four plants in Mexico, all of them located in the northern state of Coahuila, two facilities in Ramos Arizpe, one in Saltillo and another in Arteaga.
With a workforce of 3,000 total, the four plants supply parts for more than 50 customers in Mexico and the United States.
Ford Motor Company awarded in recent days its Q1 certification to Leon Interiors Saltillo facility, a recognition the automaker grants to suppliers performing the highest standards in quality and delivery.
This is Leon Interior’s second facility in Coahuila to receive such distinction, after one of the Ramos Arizpe plants.
