CHIHUAHUA – The Ministry of Innovation and Economic Development of Chihuahua (SIDE) and representatives of the industrial sector inaugurated Expo Wiretech 2023, an electrical harness trade show to be held on October 4 and 5 at the Expo Chihuahua Convention Center.
The event was organized by México Assembly Wiretech, in collaboration with the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (Canacintra), with the objective of promoting the growth and development of the industry, providing exhibiting companies with a platform to showcase their products and services to the national and international public.
The general director of Industry, Leonel Chavira, thanked the authorities for organizing the event and bringing an exhibition dedicated to the harness industry to the state for the third time.
“This type of event contributes to the economic development of the state due to the economic spillover that is generated, and also represents an opportunity for people involved in the industrial sector, because it allows them to learn about the latest state-of-the-art technology in harness manufacturing,” said Chavira.
Chihuahua has more than 300,000 manufacturing jobs and more than 300 maquiladora companies, of which 25 percent are dedicated to the harness industry or something related to this line of business, which is why it is considered “the capital of the electrical harness”.
The event is expected to be attended by more than 2,000 people, including buyers, industry professionals, academics and students. In addition, world-class exhibitors and attendees from countries such as China, Germany, Italy, France and the United States will participate.
The inauguration was attended by the CEO of México Assembly WireTech, Jesús Duarte; the director of industry of the Municipality of Chihuahua, Gilberto Elías; the general director of Feinmetall, Jorge Rodríguez; the director of Industria Nacional de Autopartes A.C., Armando Cortés; representatives of the different clusters of the State, the Export Manufacturing Industry (INDEX Chihuahua), Canacintra and educational institutions.
