The German automotive group BMTS Technology has opened its new plant facility Planta Ramos Arzipe in the Mexican state of Coahuila. After more than a year, the construction of the new plant is now completed; the official operations start-up date is foreseen by September 17. The project represents a 100 million US dollars investment.

BMTS Technology manufactures turbochargers for passenger cars, commercial motor vehicles and off-highway applications. With the new location in Mexico and thanks to the support of the local government, an increase in production up to two million turbochargers can be expected; says CEO Gunter Semeja. The South American and the North American markets (especially the US market), are going to be served by this.

Both the company and the region will benefit from this investment:  500 new jobs will be created through this project. Also, workforce specialization will be promoted thus increasing productivity. According to the Coahuila Government, the settlement of BMTS Technology is a critical step towards consolidation of the regional automotive industry.
