OTR announces opening date for Mexico facility

OTR Engineered Solutions (OTR) has announced that its new facility being built in Mexico is scheduled to commence business operations on August 1, 2024. Located in Apodaca, a city in the Monterrey metropolitan area, the building site was strategically selected to supply OEM customers with products and services such as tire mounting, sequencing, just-in-time supply, and warehousing on a local basis. These value-added services are a specialty of OTR.

In addition to its proximity to strategic OEM customers, the site offers convenient access to main roads and public transportation, helping to attract skilled labor and maximize distribution efficiency.

Construction of the new facility is on schedule. The building has been erected, and tenant improvements are currently being made, including the installation of electric, lighting, compressed air and fire suppression systems, as well as offices.

“We’re eagerly anticipating the August opening of the Apodaca facility so we can begin working even more closely with multiple OEMs operating in the Monterrey area,” said Tom Rizzi, President and CEO. “This move exemplifies OTR’s commitment to customers and dedication to serving our business partners.”

Upon completion, the Mexico location will mark OTR’s 32 nd facility worldwide.
