Since 1970, Weston, Wisconsin-based Wise Harness Solutions has assembled wire harnesses, battery cables and control panel assemblies to support its customers’ wire harness needs. The company prioritizes offering high-quality products, delivered on-time, at an excellent value and sees its expansion into Mexico as one more way to deliver upon this promise.
The decision to expand into Mexico came as Wise Harness Solutions executives sought a solution to the ongoing labor shortage plaguing manufacturers across the U.S. The company had found itself struggling to grow its Wisconsin workforce to support the demand from its customers. With more of its competitors moving into Mexico, the company recognized that the lack of a Mexican presence, combined with this workforce shortage, would make it more difficult to provide the highest quality products, on-time delivery, at the competitive price its customers expected.
Michaud adds, “We selected Empalme as the location for our new facility due to its proximity to the U.S. and the availability of an experienced workforce.” Empalme is a mere four-hour drive to the U.S. border. However, it’s location along the sea of Cortez, the second largest port on the Pacific Coast, provides manufacturers with additional options for cost-effectively reaching global customers in a timely manner.
The 25,000-square-foot facility will begin producing complex OEM vehicle wire harnesses, battery cables and control panels by early April 2021. Wise Harness executives expect that the additional capacity this facility affords will help the company to bid on more projects, allowing for additional expansion in product offerings over the next few years.
