The HNI Corporation confirmed that it will open a new office furniture plant in Saltillo, Coahuila, for which it will be generating an investment of 18.5 million dollars.
This financing is due to the high demand for office seats in North America, and will be generating around 250 direct and indirect jobs. It should be noted that the products that are being manufactured in Mexico will be to supply the five distribution centers that the company has in the United States.
The plant will be located in the Mencorsa Industrial Park and is expected to start operations in the first quarter of 2022 with a capacity area of 160,000 square feet.
Max Sánchez Armas, director of operations in Mexico, thanked the support of the state authorities for being able to facilitate the arrival of the North American company to Mexico, for which he reaffirmed that with this investment a long commercial relationship and several projects will begin.
Likewise, he explained that the decision to have chosen Coahuila is due to the proximity that the state has with the United States, because of the logistics and communications infrastructure, as well as because of the qualified workforce, security and labor peace.
