Oberkirch, September 20, 2021 - PWO AG's Mexican site is heading for a new phase of high growth. In order to realize this while maintaining process safety and efficiency, a new logistics hall with more than 1,200 square meters of space is being built. A groundbreaking ceremony just held marks construction commencement. It is scheduled to go into operation in the first quarter of 2022.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, our Mexican site has performed very successfully in recent years. In the first half of 2021, revenue was already significantly higher than in the first half of 2019. At the same time, a high volume of new orders has been acquired in recent years - in the first half of 2021 alone, new business significantly exceeded the total revenue of 2020 and of the pre-coronavirus year of 2019.

The new hall will increase the logistics space at the Mexican site by around fifty percent, securing the future start-up and ramp-up of new series productions. At the same time, the material flow at the site, which is already operating at high capacity, can thus be significantly improved in order to gain additional space in the production areas.

The additional space will be used to increase cleaning capacity for metal components, likewise by around fifty percent. This will be achieved with state-of-the-art technology that is both efficient and environmentally friendly, helping to reduce energy consumption and the use of solvents. Undesirable aerosol formation can also be prevented.

Carlo Lazzarini is optimistic for the future: "With the new logistics hall, we are investing in growth from definite new orders. At the same time, we are fulfilling our responsibility for the environment and the production of future generations' living conditions: Growth with increasingly environmentally friendly production processes. This is at the heart of our self-image."
