ASPINA's Mexico plant supports U.S. automakers with excellent location and automated assembly lines
8 Sep. 2022
Lockdowns and supply chain disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic are affecting the operations of automakers. This makes the localization of component procurement a big issue for global OEMs. Localization brings several benefits; if within the country, effects from exchange rate fluctuation can be cut, and even if among neighboring countries, transportation lead time and logistic cost can be saved and depending on conditions, customs duty as well.

Automated manufacturing lines for high productivity and quality
ASPINA manufactures several products for automotive and medical applications at our Mexico plant, and the main product, our seat ventilation blower, is manufactured in automated assembly lines. The automation not only improves productivity, but also stabilizes product quality. For example, vibration and noise levels of our seat ventilation blowers are reduced to low levels. The equipment for this automated line is manufactured in-house, using our advanced process engineering capabilities.
Procurement localization with ASPINA’s Mexico plant brings benefit to U.S. customers
The COVID-19 pandemic caused supply chain disruptions, and shortage of containers not only delayed logistics but also rose transportation costs. Our Mexico plant solves these problems and greatly supports U.S. customers by supplying products from Mexico. Also, with shorter lead time, less inventory is in transit, and the easier it is to maintain quality and respond to customer demand in a timely manner.
