KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Haldex has announced it is moving manufacturing from its Iola, Kansas facility to its expanding Monterrey, Mexico plant.

The company said its Monterrey facility is well suited for the expansion since it has been its primary brake actuator production facility since 2002. Haldex recently expanded production there by moving into a new 200,000 sq.-ft. facility.

“The investment in the Monterrey facility will significantly increase operational efficiencies and enable Haldex to better meet our North American commercial vehicle requirements,” said Jay Longbottom, executive vice-president and head of Commercial Vehicle Systems.

The transition will take place in the third and fourth quarters, the company announced.
