LAKE FOREST, Calif., May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynacast International opened a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tijuana, Mexico on April 4, 2016. The Tijuana plant will be an extension of the 115,000 square foot Lake Forest, California plant. Dynacast intends to move secondary operations including CNC machining to the Tijuana plant. The new facility will immediately free up valuable footprint in the Lake Forest plant for complex operations and highly skilled jobs.
"This new initiative is a first for Dynacast in creating a Center of Excellence for secondary operations. By utilizing the experienced management team in Lake Forest and employing a shelter service provider to operate and manage the Tijuana plant, the combined Lake Forest-Tijuana business model will be leaner and more competitive than ever before. This has a tremendously favorable impact on our ability to win new customers and grow existing partners. It's a win-win for Dynacast and our Partners," says Thinh Pho, General Manager of Dynacast Lake Forest and Tijuana.
Dynacast continues to grow and improve their manufacturing footprint—now with 23 plants in 16 countries.
