Samuel Expands with New Automotive Processing Plant in Mexico

Written by Tim Triplett

Samuel, Son & Co., Limited, is constructing a new automotive processing facility in Querétaro, Mexico. This new operation, along with an existing automotive facility in Monterrey, will position Samuel as a leading metals processor to global automotive brands and their supply chain partners operating in Mexico, the company said.

Samuel expects to complete construction of the new service center by the end of this year, with full production ramped up in January 2022. The new 140,000-square-foot building will be equipped with a slitter and related processing capabilities.

“Over the last five years, Samuel has invested more than $150 million to extend the capacity and capabilities we offer to automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers across North America,” said Luis Ponte, Samuel’s vice president of automotive. “The automotive industry is rapidly expanding in Central Mexico, and we’re looking forward to being a part of it. Our investment in Querétaro will allow us to deliver a new level of support for the many expanding global automotive programs based in the region.”

Toronto-based Samuel operates an integrated network of automotive-focused metal processing centers across North America. Other recent auto-related investments by the company include the acquisition of a second location in California for its additive manufacturing division, Burloak Technologies, the expansion of its Brantford, Ontario, facility, and the opening of a greenfield automotive operation in Columbia, Tenn.
