Ellison Surface Technologies has announced plans to open a new thermal spray coating and special process facility in Sonora, a state located in the northwestern region of Mexico.
The announcement was made official at a special ceremony at the Farnborough International Air Show. The Ellison facility in Mexico is expected to be in production by the end of 2013.
“We are excited to be a part of the Farnborough Air Show and to utilise this great event as a platform for announcing our plans to open a new facility in Mexico,” said C. Michael Ellison, President and CEO of Ellison Surface Technologies.
“The Mexican expansion is a principal part of our long-term strategic initiatives and we look forward to being an integral part of the growing aerospace and industrial gas turbine manufacturing cluster in Sonora.”
Participating in the ceremony alongside executives from Ellison Surface Technologies were representatives from the State of Sonora and Federal government of Mexico.
Moises Gomez Reyna, Secretary of Economy for the State of Sonora stated, “The investment of Ellison marks a significant expansion of Sonora’s capabilities in aero-engine and industrial gas turbine component manufacturing. The highly complex coating processes to be performed by Ellison will unlock significant new business opportunities for our aerospace machining companies and will open the door to new investments in the area.”
