Bendix has opened its new Technical Centre in Monterrey, Mexico, located within an existing building at the Research and Technological Innovation Park (PIIT).
The team – working in tandem with Bendix and Knorr-Bremse engineering colleagues across North America and worldwide respectively – will help advance new and emerging technologies.
The projects undertaken at the Centre will support the entire Bendix product portfolio.
“Our legacy and future are built on the innovation and expertise of our engineering teams that work around the world to maintain a strong and hands-on relationship aimed at bolstering our existing expertise and long-term strategic impact,” said Bendix Engineering and R&D VP, Richard Beyer.
“Mexico, where our industry manufactures more than a third of its commercial vehicle tractors and trailers, has been a vital part of Bendix’s business for 30 years, dating to the establishment of manufacturing operations in Acuna in May 1988.
“Today, through this centre located in Monterrey, we can further enhance our presence in North America and expand our engineering footprint.”
Bendix’s headquarters in Elyria will remain the company’s engineering and R&D leadership hub.
The company also maintains engineering operations in Acuña, Mexico; Irvine, California; Kalamazoo, Michigan; and Vancouver, British Columbia.
