Toshiba Opens Service Center in Mexico

Taking advantage of a "reshoring" trend.

Another indicator of the growing importance of Mexico to North American plastics manufacturing is the recent opening of the first Mexican service center by Toshiba Machine Co. America, based in Elk Grove Village, Ill. Located in the Nippon Express Guanajuato Logistics Center in Puerto Interior, Silao, Guanajuato, the new facility offers local service and support to injection molding and die casting customers throughout the country. Mexico has benefited from the “reshoring” trend as a competitive counterbalance to manufacturing in the Far East. “This is a thriving market for us,” says Toshiba Machine America general manager Tom McKevitt. Manager of the new service center is Robert Kinzel.
