New Sites in Aguascalientes, Mexico, Detroit and Nashville
North Canton, Ohio (August 1, 2019) –Surgere today announced its new Latin American subsidiary located in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The company also announced plans for expansion in the United States, including expanding their U.S. Headquarters, adding a new site in Detroit, Michigan later this year and Nashville, Tennessee in 2020 — with the possibility for additional development elsewhere in the U.S. over time.
The opening officially launched Surgere subsidiary, Technologias Avanzadas Surgere de Mexico S. de R.L. de C.V. “Our members have been fervently waiting for us to get boots on the ground in Mexico,” said David Hampton, Surgere’s VP of International Operations. “We’re expanding with the purpose of providing tactical, localized support for the implementation of Surgere’s technology globally.”
Surgere’s new location in Aguascalientes, Mexico is full of potential for the company — over 1,300 suppliers and automotive plants are within two hundred kilometers. Newly appointed general manager, and Aquascalientes native, Javier Lomeli will lead the charge. Javier brings more than twelve years of expertise in automotive, manufacturing and sensor-based technology solutions to the Surgere team.
“This is a good challenge for us at Surgere. Mexico desperately needs to support their supply chain with enhanced visibility. Surgere de Mexico is the mountain peak of this technology. We look differently at the challenges Mexico’s supply chain faces and we’re excited to see our impact.”
By making this international move, Surgere is able to increase the ease at which clients can benefit from the AutoSphere community. Surgere’s efforts in providing customers with unequalled levels of visibility and control coupled with advanced analytics support the AutoSphere members ability to greatly reduce costs and increase productivity throughout their supply chain. “Central Mexico is the automotive hub for Latin America — making it a natural progression — and a welcomed challenge for us,” said Hampton.
Typically, in Mexico, the automotive industry experiences large drop offs in visibility due to international borders, variances in customs regulations, changing work processes and, even more recently, transportation policy changes between NAFTA members. “Our AutoSphere members are relying on us to provide visibility in what has been, historically, one of the most challenging places to get consistent information,” said Hampton.
Surgere’s Aguascalientes location is projected to have a full contingency of employees by the end of this year. These skilled workers will help deploy and ensure the integration of Surgere’s technology meets the highest standards throughout the region.
“We’re staffing up and finalizing our infrastructure requirements over the next few weeks and, as always, we’re focused on delivering unprecedented ROI and visibility across the supply chain for our members,” said Hampton.
Founded in 2004, Surgere’s role in the evolving i4.0 supply chain reality is to provide their clients with advanced asset visibility, data analytics and control through each segment of the Automotive Supply Chain — Packaging, Transportation, Yard, Finished Vehicles, Plant and Cross-Global.
