CIENEGA de FLORES, Nuevo Leon, Mexico — ArvinMeritor held a ceremony here earlier this week to celebrate the opening of a new $30 million manufacturing facility.
The new 400,000 sq.-ft. plant will initially be used to produce bevel gearing and front non-drive steer axles for US and Canadian truck OEM assembly plants, ArvinMeritor announced. It features the latest manufacturing technology which will allow the component maker to produce high-quality parts in an efficient manner, according to the company.
“We have designed this facility the first, all-new commercial axle manufacturing plant in 19 years with a variety of breakthrough technologies, which will help establish ArvinMeritor with a world-class capability in gear-cutting and axle assembly. It will also provide a competitive edge by increasing our production capacity, enhancing the quality performance, and giving us greater flexibility in the manufacturing processes,” said ArvinMeritor’s Commercial Vehicle Systems president, Carsten Reinhardt.
