SAF-Holland breaks ground in Mexico

Equipment specialist, SAF-Holland, is building a new site in Piedras Negras, Coahuila.

The approx. 14,647-square-metre facility, located on 9.25 acres of land, is projected to be completed by August 2023 and is expected to focus on fifth wheel manufacturing for the US and Mexico.

Joining the SAF-Holland executive management team for the ground-breaking ceremony was the Mayor of Piedras Negras, leaders of the local economic development council, and representatives of the AMISTAD company, a full service Industrial Real Estate, construction services company in Mexico and Texas.

SAF-Holland production capabilities will include state-of-the-art robotic welding equipment to manufacture its wide range of fifth wheel model offerings including stationary, sliding and top plate assemblies.

“This investment allows us to better meet customer demand, delivering our fifth wheels more quickly to tractor manufacturers, dealers and customers,” said SAF-Holland President – Americas, Kent Jones.

“The additional manufacturing space not only enables us to serve our customers better but provides for future growth.”

In other news, last month, SAF-Holland announced it had exceeded its 2022 sales targets.
