Logic PD teams up with Tecma in Mexico
EL PASO, Texas, June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Minnesota-based Logic PD has announced that it will establish a new manufacturing facility in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico under an agreement with the Tecma Group of Companies’ Mexico Shelter Manufacturing Partnership (MSMP).
An extension of the company’s manufacturing facilities in Minnesota, the Ciudad Juarez facility provides Logic PD with the flexibility to meet its customers’ demands for accelerated time-to-market and reduce manufacturing costs while maintaining continuous quality improvement. At the new facility, Logic PD will support its customers with high-mix, low-volume and high-labor content manufacturing, aftermarket services (product life cycle management; repair depot, cost optimization and materials management services) and in-factory provisioning of Internet-connected devices.
“Flexible fulfillment options are critical to the future needs of customers in the digital world,” said Bruce DeWitt, CEO at Logic PD. “Our new facility in Ciudad Juarez will enhance our position in providing competitive and convenient services to our customers that are developing, deploying and managing connected devices.”
The Minnesota firm will occupy industrial space in one of North America’s most industrialized US-Mexico border cities, and anticipates that when the project reaches maturity, Logic PD will require a projected workforce of 50-75 individuals at the facility.
In addition to managing the facility, Tecma will provide support services in areas such as human resources, payroll and benefits management, Mexican accounting, import-export operations and logistics and transportation.
