Leviton, a leading provider of electrical wiring devices, networking and lighting today announced the expansion of its manufacturing facility in Camargo, Mexico.
The over 80,000 square foot facility will house several new production lines and a distribution center for more efficient operations, as well as areas that benefit employees such as dedicated offices, a cafeteria and recreational center. The new facility will add 300 positions to the Leviton workforce in the region.
“We’ve been manufacturing products in Camargo for over 25 years and are extremely excited to be expanding our footprint yet again in this region,” said Michael Mattei, executive vice president & general manager, Leviton Commercial & Industrial. “As customer needs and dynamics shift, we’re staying ahead in terms of how we meet demand and develop new products. In this new space, we’re adding technology and manufacturing capabilities that will allow us to even better serve our customers.”
The facility will manufacture products for all four Leviton business units and serve customers across the world. Incorporating automation and new technology in the facility will also improve Leviton’s ability to meet capacity demands, improve lead times and bring new products to market in a faster and more sustainable manner.
Focusing on reducing its overall environmental impact and empowering and enabling customers to be more sustainable, Leviton’s goal to achieve company-wide Carbon Neutrality by 2030 (CN2030) will be reflected in the construction and the expansion of the Camargo facility.
“It was important to incorporate our CN2030 efforts in building this facility,” said Jaime Estrada, vice president, Chihuahua Operations. “As Leviton strives for carbon neutrality by 2030, the expanded Camargo facility will adhere to Green Building Initiative standards.”
Leviton expects to complete construction later this year.
