The Fasemex Group will invest 3 million dollars to install its metalworking plant called Lidell in Monclova, and promote the economic development of the Central Region of Coahuila.
This investment will generate at least 300 jobs for the production of hoppers.
Likewise, the expansion was announced by the Freightcar America company, which will invest 60 million dollars for the production of train wagons at its Castaños plant.
During the event, the first stone of this megaproject was laid, which already employs 900 people, a figure that could increase with this injection of capital thanks to the growth they will have.
For his part, Miguel Ángel Riquelme Solís, governor of Coahuila, recognized investors for their great effort in times of pandemic and promised to provide them with all the tools for their consolidation, such as a qualified workforce, job stability and well-being for the workers.
Jesús Meyer, president of corporate Freightcar America, said they have managed to build the 1,000th rail car, which highlights the highly talented and specialized human capital they have.
“This is a sample of the growth we have had in the manufacturing field, I have worked for nearly 40 years in this field and I can realize that the Castaños plant is world-class in quality and personnel,” concluded the manager.
