Written by Laura Miller

ThyssenKrupp Material Services is investing $37 million to build a new aluminum and steel service center in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, to serve the automotive supply markets. Operations at the new location are scheduled to begin mid-2023.

The San Luis Potosí location and thyssenkrupp’s existing service center 125 miles away in Silao will be the only two locations in the country to offer aluminum blanking services, according to the company.

“The needs and requirements of the industry are changing rapidly. Against the background of the major transformation themes of electro-mobility, sustainability, and supply chain resilience, Mexico is a clear growth market for us. Here we can support customers with our materials as a service strategy precisely in these key areas,” commented Martin Stillger, CEO of thyssenkrupp Materials Services.

ThyssenKrupp currently operates three service centers in Mexico. In addition to the Silao location, it has one in Saltillo and one in Puebla, all near a large number of OEMs and suppliers to the automotive industry.

The new San Luis Potosí location in north-central Mexico will be key for thyssenkrupp to reach the US market.

“With the opening of the plant, we will be able to further expand our unique position in this pre-processing service in the Mexican market,” says Olaf Voss, CEO of thyssenkrupp Materials de Mexico.

Essen, Germany-based thyssenkrupp Material Services operates around 380 locations and 260 warehouse sites in more than 30 countries.
