Visual Merchandising Incorporated expands its Mexico manufacturing footprint
El Paso, Texas, March 12, 2014 – Broomfield, Colorado-based Visual Merchandising, Inc. (VMI) has recently expanded the size of its Mexico manufacturing operations in Ciudad Juarez.
The company will shortly increase the space that it has dedicated to the production of retail display mannequins from 60,552 to 84,312 square feet.
VMI, which currently employs a total of four hundred and eighty workers, will contract an additional fifty employees when its expanded facility is ready for occupation. The company operates its Mexico manufacturing plant under the auspices of The Tecma Group of Companies’ Mexico Shelter Manufacturing Partnership (MSMP).
According to Rich Moran, the company’s executive vice president of operations, “The present expansion is due to a growth in demand for VMI product. An increase in floor space at our Mexican manufacturing facility at this time will enable us to ramp up production in response, as well as to improve efficiencies by re-laying our factory work flow.”
In addition to the present increase in its Mexican manufacturing footprint, Visual Merchandising, Inc., has also extended the period during which it will partner in Mexico with the Tecma Group of Companies for an additional five years.
