The delivery of just-in-sequence front-end modules for vehicles coming down the A-Class assembly line involves the management of more than 185 individual components and can be completed on three hours’ notice, plant manager Carlos Galan says.
Automotive supplier HBPO opens a plant in Aguascalientes, Mexico, that will produce modular front-end systems for Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedans at a nearby Daimler assembly facility.
The 50,200-sq.-ft. (4,660-sq.-m) plant has 70 employees and is operating on two 12-hour shifts Monday through Saturday, HBPO says in a news release. The factory will have more than 100 employees when full production is reached next year.
