Large North American Manufacturing Company Opens Additional Facility in Mexico

February 21, 2024

MONTERREY, Mexico – Cadrex Manufacturing Solutions, one of the largest manufacturing partners and mechanical solutions providers in North America, is expanding its footprint in Mexico. The company opened a new 150,000-square-foot facility near its existing site in Monterrey. This addition gives Cadrex 405,000 square feet of manufacturing space in Mexico, making the combined sites the largest operational location in the company. Members of the Cadrex Executive Leadership joined local leaders for a grand opening ceremony at the new facility on February 20. It is located near the existing space in an office park in Juarez, part of the Monterrey metropolitan area.

The new facility will serve as an extension of the current space, which has sheet metal fabrication, sheet metal stamping, welding, and plastic injection molding capabilities, as well as assembly and testing. Site leaders plan to set up these processes at the new facility in the next few months based on the needs of upcoming projects.

About 800 employees work at the existing Cadrex Monterrey facility, and Cadrex leaders hope to add hundreds of new employees over the next few years in Mexico. The location serves clients primarily in the data center infrastructure; network, compute, & storage; fiber optics; 5G; and semiconductor markets.

“This is a time of growth for our company, particularly in Mexico. Monterrey’s manufacturing industry is booming, and it is a geographically ideal location. It is close to our network of sites in the U.S. while allowing us to branch across North America and support regional supply chain demand,” says Cadrex CEO Brian Steel. “We look forward to expanding in Monterrey. Not only are we investing in our company’s growth, we are investing in the community and tapping into its pool of incredible talent.”

Cadrex acquired custom mechanical solutions provider Tenere in 2022; the company opened a site in Guadalupe in 2016 before moving the facility to its current space in Juarez in 2021. The site became 255,000 square feet after undergoing an expansion in 2022, and it houses more than 50 state-of-the-art machines.

Cadrex now has 22 facilities located in the United States and Mexico, each with unique capabilities. The company’s locations work cohesively to complete projects, solve problems, and quickly move products through the supply chain. Cadrex has hundreds of active customers, including more than 40 Fortune 500 companies.
