Geprom will be present during the strategic trade mission in México, organised by the Generalitat de Catalunya through ACCIÓ –Agency for the competitiveness of businesses– in collaboration with CIAC (the cluster of the automation industry of Catalonia). The goal of this business trip, which will take place from the 11th until the 16th of March of this year, is to present the opportunities that this market offers, as well as getting in contact with the main manufacturers of the country.
During the trade mission, Geprom will present their technological solutions in the industry 4.0 and industrial automation environment, with the purpose of bringing closer companies with products and services that will allow them to improve their processes in order to successfully face the forth industrial revolution.
In the setting of the connected industry, practical cases will be presented, showing the development and integration in real time of the Legato Sapient system, one of the most globally implemented MES systems. Likewise, our automation engineering services will be presented, which go from solutions in maintenance and logistics, to control systems and surface treatment.
The companies that will take part in this trade mission are: Cepicat, Enertika, Idasa, MMM, Tapla, Zanini, E. Vila Projects, Geprom, Campus Motor Anoia, Tecnomatrix, Trigo Group, Ingedetec and the technological centre Eurecat-Leitat.
During the trip, the business delegation will meet with established multinationals in México, like Bosch, Volkswagen or Mazda. There will also be encounters with representatives of the INA (Industria Nacional de Autopartes), the main representative body of Mexican companies dedicated to the manufacture of automotive components; the Automotriz Cluster, which brings together more than 70 companies in the sector and 130 suppliers; and Ciateq, an organisation of advanced manufacturing centres throughout the country.
The automotive sector is the main industry in Mexico in generating jobs, transferring technology, attracting investment and developing human capital. From January to June 2017, it accounted for 30.8% of total Mexican exports and 9.3% of the manufacturing industry.
With this mission, Geprom strengthens its commitment to internationalisation in the Mexican market, already started with the completion of several technological consulting projects at the Audi factory in Puebla.
