SRG Global breaks ground on plant expansion in Mexico


SRG Global's Irapuato, Mexico, facility will get a new expansion in a project that more than doubles its size. The expansion is expected to be operational in 2015, according to Dave Prater, SRG Global President and CEO, who made the announcement. The SRG facility is located east of Guadalajara and northwest of Mexico City, in the state of Guanajuato.

The expansion will add 215,000 square feet to the existing 205,000-square-foot facility, providing complete part production capability including injection molding, chrome plating, and assembly. According to Prater, the larger facility will also provide the necessary capacity to offer new products at the site, such as interior trip components, rocker panels, and fog lamp bezels, among others.
