The automotive industry in Mexico has grown fast over the past few years and now represents 20% of the country’s manufacturing base. Nowadays most of the main car manufacturers and their suppliers are based in the country because of the lower labor costs and rapidly growing skilled workforce.
Mexico is currently one of the largest car manufacturer in the world and is expected to grow even further in the future.
Because of this K.Hartwall wanted to reinforce its local presence in the Mexican market. We therefore needed an experienced partner. We found it in DYCSA.
DYCSA was set up in 2002 to provide Manufacturing and Automation solutions for different industries such as Automotive, Electronics, Pharmaceutical, Food or Aeronautical industries.
They are a highly respected distributor for Lean Manufacturing equipment. They provide various well-known brands with quality solutions including lean manufacturing systems, visual management, material handling and storage. Their mission is to ensure maximum customer satisfaction, profitability and brand awareness through innovative solutions.
“We both felt like we shared the same values and that K.Hartwall had some innovative products which could bring substantial cost savings to our customers,” says Gustavo Coronado, Managing Director at DYCSA.
Since June 2016 DYCSA and K.Hartwall are official partners.
With the K. Hartwall Lean Logistics solution DYCSA will complete its offering with the well-proven Lean Dolly and Adaptor Pallet concept in addition to the Pallet Size Dolly range of products allowing customers to combine internal & external logistics and improve their workflow by:
