DENSO expands Apodaca plant and establishes new HAMADEN MEXICO facility.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. ― DENSO Corp., today announced that DENSO MEXICO S.A. DE C.V. (DNMX) will expand its plant in Apodaca, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, to increase production of transmission components for its North American customers. The expansion represents an investment of $53.8 million, which will add 8,826 square feet (8,200 square meters) of space and 500 jobs by 2018. The plant will begin production in December 2015.
 
In addition, HAMANAKODENSO Co., Ltd., a DENSO Group Co., established a new facility in Salinas Victoria City, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, to produce solenoids for engine and airflow control units for its North and South American customers. The new facility, HAMADEN MEXICO S.A. DE C.V. (HDMX), represents an investment of $35.8 million and will employ about 340 people when full production is underway in 2018.

This investment is part of DENSO’s expansion plan to invest nearly $1 billion in North America – more than $750 million in the United States – to strengthen and expand its product development and manufacturing capabilities across the region.
 
DENSO opened its Apodaca Plant in 1996, which manufactures instrument clusters, air conditioning control panels and variable cam timing (VCT) systems. In addition to the Apodaca Plant, DNMX also has plants in Guadalupe City, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and Silao City, Guanajuato, Mexico that manufacture sensors, car air conditioners and radiators.
