Mühldorf am Inn, October 24, 2016 – ODU has opened a new production site near Tijuana, Mexico. This move was prompted by ODU’s increasing success in project-related business involving application and customer-specific products. As in Europe, ODU is aiming to strengthen its business in North America around fully assembled products. The new production plant in Mexico offers the ideal conditions for meeting this objective: With 3,000 square meters of production space and 50 staff members, the Mexican site will be running at full steam by early 2017. Its focus is on cable assembly, yet production can be extended to all other ODU areas as well. The Managing Director of the plant, Doru Epure, already spent ten years managing ODU’s Romanian plant. ODU specialists from the US and Europe will be providing intensive training to ensure that ODU’s high global standards are also fully adhered to at the new production site. In addition, a new stock of merchandise in San Diego, California (USA), will strengthen ODU’s North American sales organization – ensuring faster turnaround times, improved flexibility and product availability. “ODU has been active in the North American region for more than 30 years and generates almost a quarter of its overall annual turnover there. Thanks to the dynamic development of the market, we still see enormous potential for growth – in Central and South America, too,” explains Dr. Kurt Woelfl, Managing Director at ODU, regarding the company’s activities.
