Visteon Corporation has opened a new automotive technical centre and office facility in Chihuahua, Mexico.

The 5,000-square-metre facility will accommodate vehicle component design activities and administrative operations in the region and will house about 200 engineers, technicians and other employees.

Last February, Visteon announced the construction of its new Mexico Technical Center adjacent to property of the Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM), Chihuahua Campus.

The strategic alliance between Visteon and the ITESM is said to demonstrate the company's commitment to performance and competitiveness in the Mexican automotive market.
