NEO Tech, a California-based provider of manufacturing technology and supply chain solutions, officially inaugurated its second manufacturing site in Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico.
The new facility became operational last August and recruited 500 workers for that end. An additional 120 positions will be opened during the coming months for a second stage of operations, totaling 1,300 jobs created between the two Neo Tech plants in the city.
The expansion came as a result of NEO Tech’s business growth as well as increased demand for the company’s low- to mid-volume services in the industrial, medical and aerospace segments. Business growth is fueled by an increase in Nearshoring activity especially for industrial and medical market OEMs.
With the new facility, NEO Tech Agave manufacturing capacity in Juarez will triple, according to company officials. The new Agave 2 location is located only 1.4 miles from the current NEO Tech Agave 1 site. This is the company’s fourth production site in Mexico, as it also operates two facilities in Tijuana, Baja California.
The expanded Agave 2 site enables NEO Tech to deliver expanded value add manufacturing services such as complex box build & systems integration, direct fulfillment and repair and refurbishment services as well as engineering solutions such as failure analysis, DFM & DFT and functional test development from the Agave location. Both Agave 1 and Agave 2 will be certified to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO13485:2003.
