“The new facility signifies our ongoing dedication to making a positive impact on customers in this market.” The speaker is Ross Anderson, president of Milacron’s Machinery Technologies in North America. The market is Mexico, and the new facility is Milacron’s just-opened Plastics Technology Center in Queretaro. Anderson stressed that the company, active in the Mexican market for 25 years, is committed not only to serving its existing customer base but also to expanding with new customers.
The Center includes Milacron’s U.S. and Ferromatik injection machinery, Uniloy blowmolding technology, Extrusion Systems, plus its Servtek and Cimcool businesses, all under one roof with what Anderson calls best-in-class equipment and expanded aftermarket services, training being among them.
The Center’s service menu includes rebuild, retrofit, and remanufacture of processing machines, which it says will let regional customers receive these services quickly and cost effectively. It says that rebuilding used equipment locally is a lower-cost solution for adding capacity, and that its enhanced retrofitting capabilities can upgrade performance without the capital cost of new equipment.
Prior to this, several of Milacron’s businesses offered sales, technical service, support, and training from a smaller technical center in Mexico City. Even though the main operations are relocating to Queretaro, which will be the Mexico center for service parts and support, a service and technical support network for all types of Milacron machinery technology will remain in the Mexico City area. —[email protected]
