Flextronics, the Singapore-based electronics manufacturer serving the medtech, industrial and automotive sectors, has set its sights on the North American OEM market, with plans to build a major new facility in Mexico. The city of Ciudad Juarez has been chosen for its strategic location, and will complement the company's other Mexican operations, based in Gudalajara and Aguascalientes. Its services will include product configure- and build-to-order and logistics, including distribution. "The new facility will maximise the advantages of Flextronics' low-cost vertically integrated services for OEM customers," said the US$16bn (2005) turnover company. The facility is due to be operational in the first half of 2006.
