To further strengthen its customer support in Mexico, Seco Tools, LLC has recently opened a new facility in Querétaro. Led by Curtis Hassan, the new Seco Tools de Mexico will provide customers with access to the company’s range of tooling, training programs and engineering services.

The Mexican manufacturing sector has rapidly matured in recent decades, with new factories featuring the latest in state-of-the-art technology. Seco Tools de Mexico is now able to provide support and services for these customers locally. In the past, Mexican customers and channel partners had to visit the North American headquarters in Troy, Michigan, for training. With a location in Querétaro, Seco Tools can perform tool failure analysis and provide engineering consultations to those customers locally.

The new facility features a microscopy lab for the analysis of used or damaged tools, as well as a dedicated aerospace applications expert and a manufacturing process engineer for customers with highly specialized needs. It also includes a variety of spaces for conducting Seco Technical Education Program (STEP) training sessions and consultations regarding process optimization with its Engineered Solutions team. The company says that the new office has enabled shorter delivery times, reduced costs and local technical support that its customers want.
