Geprom continues to strengthen their activity in the Mexican market with the completion of the first digital transformation projects in the Audi and Volkswagen production plants. The new projects and the recent opening of the technical office in Puebla represent a boost in Geprom’s commitment to the Aztec country.
The Audi plant in San José Chiapa (Puebla), established in 2016, has a production that reaches 150 thousand units per year, and has become a benchmark of engineering 4.0, having an automation level greater than 85% and more than 700 robots involved in the production line, which makes it one of the most modern in the world.
On the other hand, Volkswagen, which has been established in the Mexican country for 65 years, maintains a plant near Puebla where more than 10 vehicle models are produced, including Golf, Polo, and Tiguan. Its processes are already mostly automated but now they seek, with an investment of 4,000 million in digitalization, to have full and digital control of the entire plant.
Geprom will carry out, in these two pioneer factories, Smart Factory projects, through the development and integration of their MES system and other digital platforms for monitoring, controlling and managing production in real time. The goal of integrating these solutions is to achieve more flexible and efficient processes, increasing the OEE and reducing production costs.
Geprom recently opened its subsidiary in Mexico to reinforce quality and proximity in customer service. Likewise, Geprom has opened a technical office in Puebla to develop digital transformation projects in a more personalized and solid way with their clients in the country’s central corridor, which is where most of the Mexican industry is located.
For this expansion project, Geprom has had the support of ICEX Spain Trade and Investment, through the ICEX NEXT program. Within the program, which supports Spanish SMEs that want to start or consolidate their international business, ICEX has accompanied Geprom in all phases of the internationalization project, especially in the international promotion stage.
