The firm Bendix, producer of driving control modules (DCM), allotted US$4.6 million to expand its manufacture lines at its plant in Acuña, Coahuila. This, with the objective of increasing its capacity in order to make 60,000 units a year, which shall be installed in heavy vehicles.
The modules will satisfy the demand from Navistar, that is going to use them in class 8 trucks, as well as military vehicles. John Kamer, Vice President of Bendix, comments that this re-structuration and investment represents the next step to drive the module production business forward, as it strengthens the commercial relation with Navistar, who will benefit, too, from the proximity of the factories, by establishing the “just in time” model for its deliveries.
