Savaria's proximity to the US market hopes to reduce lead times and freight costs, as well as adding overall capacity to meet revenue growth.
LAVAL — Savaria Corporation, a manufacturer involved in the accessibility industry, recently hosted a grand opening celebration of its new 95,000-square-foot factory in Querétaro City, Mexico.
Strategically located to try and serve the growing demand of the Savaria US-based dealer network, the new building was constructed over the past seven months in Querétaro City, Mexico. The facility is modelled after Savaria Huizhou (China), Savaria’s operation providing subassembly services. The proximity to the US market will reduce lead times and freight costs, as well as adding overall capacity to meet revenue growth.
A grand opening celebration was held on November 12 welcoming employees and their families. Savaria is hiring additional staff with a goal of 100 employees by the end of 2023. Production of the Savaria Multilift, a vertical platform lift for home and commercial applications, is already underway.
“This marks another great achievement for Savaria, and I thank all the employees who participated in the preparation and opening of our new operation,” commented Sébastien Bourassa, Operations and Integration Vice President.
With the addition of the Mexico operation, Savaria has over one million square feet of distribution and production space over 17 facilities. Optimization of all facilities is continuous in order to improve global reach and increase efficiencies across the corporation.
