LONGUEUIL, Que.: Héroux-Devtek Inc. is building a plant in Mexico to be near Bombardier and other aerospace OEMs.
The aerospace and industrial products company based in Longueuil, Que. is constructing a 47,200 square-foot facility in the Querétaro Aerospace Park in Mexico that will be equipped with state-of-the-art machinery for the production of aerostructure components.
Construction is to begin during the second quarter of the year, and Héroux-Devtek said the plant should be ready to produce its first components early in 2012.
This first phase involves a $20 million investment over the next three years, but the company expects to eventually expand to 150,000 square feet, allowing additional production of landing gear systems.
The plant will produce detailed parts for Bombardier’s commercial and business aircraft in line with a contract announced in February, but the company said it will also be providing components to other aerospace OEMs located in the park.
