Luvata announces move and expansion of Juarez facility
(14 January 2014). Luvata, a world leader in metal solution manufacturing, heat-transfer technology and engineering and design services, announces the successful move and expansion of its heat exchanger manufacturing facility in Juarez, Mexico.
Located just 1700-feet from the previous facility, the newly constructed prefab plant includes 203,000-square feet, almost double its previous space. The state-of-the-art facility offers lower ceilings with natural sky lighting along with high energy efficiency lighting. The dedicated shipping and receiving docks offer better utilization of the manufacturing space.
“We were land-locked at our previous location. When the owners sold the building, it provided us with the opportunity to select a more modern facility that would better meet our manufacturing requirements,” says Michael Flanders, Vice President of Luvata Heat Transfers Solutions Americas. “We were able to design the interior and place the machines in a way so we can have an optimum flow. Capitalizing on the natural lighting alone will significantly reduce our electricity consumption as well.”
Luvata Juarez produces a wide variety of heat exchangers for use in commercial and residential air conditioning and refrigeration as well as mobile A/C and industrial cooling markets.
