Nissen Chemitec, a Japanese manufacturer of automotive injection molded parts, inaugurated its first production facility in Mexico, located in the municipality of Valle de Santiago, Guanajuato.
The company, which also manufactures chemicals for the electronics industry, invested US$18 million and opened 200 job positions in order to start operations in the Sendai industrial park.
Total workforce in the facility is expected to reach 380 associates once it becomes fully operational. Overall, the investment planned for the plant will amount nearly US$25 million, according to state authorities.
