TECT Aerospace Components Begins Manufacturing In Mexico
TECT Aerospace Components has just begun Manufacturing In Mexico operations that will provide 3 and 4-axis machined and fabricated components for sister company TECT Aerospace of Farnborough, England. TECT’s new component operation is located in Guanajuato, Mexico and is slated to produce ‘work statements’ and complex assemblies for Ft. Worth, Wichita and Seattle customers. Furthermore, after the startup phase is over, the company will begin servicing external customers as well. With the initial phase up and running, director general Ray May of TECT Aerospace Components states that their efforts have included installing new equipment, hiring and training (their) initial workforce, and that they have “begun producing first article pieces on most beginning statement work.”
May also added that “the quality and work ethic of the workforce, and support provided by local and regional governments has been instrumental in the smooth startup of operations.” The new manufacturing in Mexico operations located in Guanajuato is the beginning, according to Kenneth Glass, chairman of UCA Holdings, TECT’s parent company. The company’s future intentions include finalizing and announcing “the launch of the next TECT location outside of the United States by year end,” Glass says. All told, the facility in Guanajuato will employ up to 50 full-time workers once the Guanajuato plant is fully operational.
