Coats has opened a new manufacturing facility in Huamantla, Tlaxcala, Mexico, to produce technical threads for the automotive, household and recreation and other industries.

Representing an investment of $9 million, the Huamantla Plant has been built on a site of 12,000 square metres and its supporting infrastructure is based on sustainable standards. It has a dedicated warehouse and distribution centre that will serve both local Mexican and US-based customers.

The plant will be a key supplier to the automotive, personal protection and wire and cable industries and will play a pivotal role in supporting broadband and telecommunications solutions across the Americas. Coats products will be supplied to Tier 1 companies whose products end up in some of the most well-known brands.

Complementing existing operations at Orizaba in Mexico, reduced workflows at the new Huamantla Plant will deliver measurable inputs towards the company’s sustainability and productivity objectives, while also ensuring maximum levels of flexibility to cater to changing customer needs.

“High-quality production is crucial to our success,” said Rajiv Sharma, Coats CEO. “The new Huamantla Plant will allow us to be more sustainable while better meeting customer needs and expectations in a fast-changing world.’
