BOGE Rubber & Plastics Group is further expanding its global presence. On 20 October 2017, the automotive supplier officially opened its new plant in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, in the presence of high-ranking guests from the worlds of politics, business and society. Among the guests of honor was Juan Manuel Carreras López, Governor (Prime Minister) of the State of San Luis Potosí.
At this location, BOGE Rubber & Plastics will produce products from all product lines which include chassis and powertrain suspension mounts for vibration technology chassis and powertrain as well as in the field of plastics components for the automotive industry.
Daimler and the VW Group are among the first customers. Orders amounting to double-digit millions in annual sales have already been received up to the year 2029. Start of series deliveries will be in summer 2018.
With its new location in Mexico, BOGE Rubber & Plastics is closing a gap in its production network, thus increasing its competitiveness for the customers when it comes to awarding the contracts to supply global platforms. Customer proximity is a decisive criterion for the automotive supplier with headquarters in Germany. With the plant in San Luis Potosí, BOGE Rubber & Plastics is now able to support their TOP customers with their know-how and their service on the spot. In addition, we have set the course for the future with the new plant in this very fast growing and now one of the largest automotive manufacturing countries worldwide. With its location in Mexico, BOGE Rubber & Plastics is present worldwide with currently 11 production sites in 8 countries on four continents.
In this first step, a good five million euros were invested in the expandable new plant. The production hall covers approximately 5,700 square meters, of which 1,200 square meters are provided for plastics and 3,600 square meters for rubber-metal technology. Over the next few years, approximately 150 to 200 employees will be employed here in the medium term, depending on the production starts and the product mix.
The plant of the BOGE Rubber & Plastics Group is located about 400 kilometers northwest of Mexico City in San Luis Potosí (state San Luis Potosí). The company operates under BOGE Rubber & Plastics Mexico S.A. de C.V.
