Ikano Industry acquires land in Mexico
Ikano Industry has acquired a 78-hectare site in Ramos Arizpe, in the state of Coahuila, Mexico, to start up a factory for the production of foam-based comfort products. The site is located in the newly established Parque Industrial Chuy Maria Coahuila owned and operated by Amistad.
Over the next 3-5 years, Ikano Industry will establish a 200,000 m2 manufacturing cluster for the production of foam-based comfort products. In the autumn 2019, 100,000 m2 of production-, warehouse-, and office space will be built, with scheduled completion in 2020. In the coming years, additional expansion of manufacturing- and warehouse space will be built. Upon completion, the entire plant is expected to employ around 2,000 co-workers.
“Starting up a factory in a fast-growing country like Mexico, and becoming part of the dynamic environment in Ramos Arizpe, is a fantastic opportunity for us. We wish to extend our sincere gratitude to Coahuila’s governor Miguel Ángel Riquelme Solís and his staff, as well as to the mayor of Ramos Arizpe, Jose Maria Morales Padilla, for their strong support in our establishment,” says Mats Håkansson, Chairman of Ikano Industry.
In return, both the Coahuila State Government and Governor Miguel Ángel Riquelme Solís have expressed their appreciation that Ikano Industry, being a stable and financially strong company, will be contributing to the growth of the region, and generate many job opportunities.
“Ikano’s vision is to create possibilities for better living. One of the ways we do this is by working together to create simple and meaningful solutions based on fair terms that bring value to our customers. Here in Ramos Arizpe, we aim to establish a great workplace for employees in an innovative environment that uses the latest technology, optimised processes and high-quality materials. Thanks to this opportunity, we will be able to bring more value to customers with excellent products that exceed their expectations,” says Sebastian Łuczyński, Managing Director of Ikano Industry.
