Sona BLW Precision Forgings, also known as Sona Comstar, has opened a new manufacturing facility in the Fipasi Industrial Park, Silao, Mexico.

As a leading global manufacturer of differential assemblies for BEVs, Sona Comstar acknowledges the importance of North America, which contributes about 40% to its revenue, making it the largest market. The strategic placement of this new plant in Mexico will likely boost the company’s supply chain efficiency and its ability to meet customer needs in the region.

V Vikram Verma, CEO of Driveline Business at Sona Comstar, stated that the company has achieved continuous growth by meeting the changing needs and expectations of its customers. He emphasized their dedication to innovation and cutting-edge technologies, which established them as a leading partner for global automakers. With the opening of a new plant in Mexico, they plan to strengthen their position as the top provider of driveline solutions in North America. This expansion highlights their ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction and their strategic approach to growth, especially with the increasing demand for electric vehicles.

The advanced manufacturing technologies in the new facility in Mexico adhere to the highest standards of quality and safety. This will boost Sona Comstar’s production capabilities, create numerous jobs, and make a significant economic contribution locally. The company’s efforts reflect its commitment to sustainable and environmentally responsible manufacturing practices.

Additionally, Mexico continues to attract significant investments from the global automotive industry, as evidenced by several key developments this year:

In January 2024, Rane Madras from India launched a new plant in Aguascalientes, Mexico, marking its entry into global markets. This facility will produce steering and suspension products and light metal casting components for passenger vehicles.

In February, Posco International authorized construction of a second facility in Mexico. This plant will serve as a crucial production hub to supply motor cores for Hyundai Motor Group’s Metaplant America and meet the production needs of other North American clients.

Yokohama Rubber Co announced in March 2024 its plans to establish a passenger car tyre factory in Mexico to boost its capacity to supply tyres to North America. This plant will produce up to 5 million tyres annually, with a capital investment of $380 million.

In August 2023, Magna initiated a $17 million expansion of its lighting division in Querétaro, Mexico, following multiple awards from various automakers for rear lighting projects.
