Haitian International officially inaugurated its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Mexico, inviting official representatives of the state of Jalisco, the municipality of Acatlan de Juarez, top management of Haitian Group and 400 invited guests to take part in a formal ceremony.

Representing a total investment of around $50 million, the new site covers a total of 92,000 m² (990,000-ft2) for manufacturing, sales and administration. Within that, around 27,000 m² (290,000 ft2) is production space with functions such as metalworking, assembly, and customer service. To date, more than 100 machines have been produced and delivered to regional customers. A Haitian spokesperson told Plastics Technology that for now, this new manufacturing center will be supplying machines to Central and South America. Eventually, and potentially by end of 2023, it could also be supplying servo-hydraulic machines to North America through Absolute Haitian, Haitian’s distribution partner for that region.

The new facility is in Mexico’s Centro Logistico Jalisco, an industrial park in Acatlan de Juarez, a municipality in the Guadalajara metropolitan area. This location provides easy access to the fast-growing industrial areas in central Mexico while also being close to the seaport of Manzanillo. Haitian has been present in the Mexican market since 1999.

In May 2019, Absolute Haitian opened a 116,000-ft2 plant Moncks Corner, South Carolina. This facility provides domestic assembly of Haitian International’s molding machines for the U.S. and Canada.
