Nissan to Build $2.0B Manufacturing Complex in Aguascalientes, Mexico, Grow Capacity in the Americas
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced plans to invest up to $2.0 billion USD for an all-new manufacturing complex in Aguascalientes, Mexico, to support the company's Americas growth strategy. The facility, which will complement Nissan's two existing Mexican factories, is scheduled to begin operations in late 2013. During the initial phase of its development, the new complex will support production of up to 175,000 units annually of Nissan's 'B' platform products. Further expansion of the site will be considered in phases as product and capacity needs are formalized.
The new complex in Aguascalientes will allow Nissan's existing and future operations to share critical resources. An all-new supplier park also will be built on the site.
