Milacron, a global supplier of plastics-processing technologies and industrial fluids, announced yesterday (Apr 1) the starting of operation for its Milacron Plastics Technology Center in Queretaro, Mexico.
The Service Center brings together Milacron’s Uniloy, Extrusion, Ferromatik, the US Injection Machinery, SERVTEK and Cimcool businesses all under one roof for optimal efficiencies. Centralizing the businesses in this larger facility is a real benefit to customers. The new operation enables Milacron to combine technical and analytical talents, enhance machinery services to customers as well as expand customer training.
Service offerings include the rebuild, retrofit and remanufacture of processing machines. This will make it easier for customers in the region to have their equipment serviced or upgraded quickly and cost effectively. Rebuilding used equipment locally represents a lower-cost solution for many customers requiring additional capacity. And the enhanced retrofitting capabilities will provide performance upgrades without the expense of new capital equipment.
The Queretaro facility will serve as the Mexico center for all local service, parts and manufacturing needs and will be the support base for the extensive sales, service and technical support network.
Prior to this move, several of Milacron’s businesses operated out of a smaller technical center in Mexico City facilitating sales, technical service, support and training which they have now outgrown. While the main operations are relocating, Mexico City remains an important market for the company and a local network of service and technical support for all Milacron machinery technologies will remain in the area.
