El Paso, Texas, March 19, 2013 – The Tecma Group of Companies recently announced that Irving, Texas-based company ”Christmas by Krebs” has contracted to double the size of its operations under the Tecma’s Mexico Shelter Manufacturing Partnership (MSMP).

Krebs made its initial foray into Mexico in 2010 by occupying fifteen thousand square of industrial space in Ciudad Juarez, and by employing a workforce of nine direct laborers. Given the positive results that have been achieved, the company will double the space that it currently occupies and concurrently boost the number of workers at its Mexico shelter manufacturing facility to twenty permanent hires.

Staffing will ramp up to one hundred and twenty to meet seasonal demands.

Christmas by Krebs is a leader in the ornament industry. The company produces glass, shatterproof and custom decorative items for the holiday season. According to Walter Krebs, CEO, “Because our initial experience in Mexico has been a positive one, we have decided to expand our relationship with The Tecma Group of Companies. Tecma and its services help us to increase and maintain our competitive edge by making cost savings achievable, as well as by enabling us to free additional time and energy resources to produce better products.”
