Expanding Horizons with a New Manufacturing Facility

At Kurtz Ersa, innovation is in our DNA. Our commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions for the manufacturing industry has driven us to new frontiers. In a significant development, we are on the verge of completing a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, known as Kurtz Ersa Mexico Manufacturing (KEMM). Set to commence operations in April 2024, this facility is set to play a pivotal role in our global journey.

The heart of this facility will be the production of our next-generation reflow ovens, specifically the HOTFLOW THREE series. This marks a significant milestone, as it positions KEMM as our third-largest manufacturing location worldwide, following closely behind Germany and China. Why Mexico, you might ask? Albrecht Beck, President and COO of Kurtz Ersa, Inc., highlights the strategic advantages that make Mexico the ideal location for this expansion: “Mexico´s central border location provides excellent connectivity and access to the strong local markets in the Americas. Additionally, Mexico is home to a pool of highly educated and motivated individuals, ensuring a skilled workforce to maintain our high German quality standards at a state-of-the-art factory.”

The strategic significance of this expansion is underscored by our rapid growth in the Americas. The Ciudad Juarez plant will empower us to serve local customers more efficiently, reducing lead times, lowering freight costs, and reducing our carbon footprint. This expansion doesn´t just offer an additional manufacturing location; it also creates redundancy in our supply chain. We´re looking forward to the launch of operations at the new manufacturing plant in April 2024. The Ciudad Juarez facility will join our existing service and logistics hubs in Plymouth, Wisconsin (USA), and Guadalajara, Mexico, making it the third major service and logistics hub in our global network. This expansion reaffirms our commitment to delivering innovative solutions to the manufacturing industry.

Our journey continues to be one of investment in cutting-edge technologies, expanding our global reach, and providing unparalleled service to our customers worldwide. The new manufacturing facility in Ciudad Juarez stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to innovation and customer service, solidifying our position as a pivotal player in the global manufacturing landscape.
