Walbro Expands Die Casting Operation in Mexico

Walbro LLC has announced a major expansion of their North American manufacturing operations with the opening of a new Aluminum Die Casting Facility in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico.

The company held an official ribbon cutting ceremony at the plant with invited guests attending including Javier Lizárraga Mercado, Secretary of Economic Development; Jose Mario Cadena Bórquez, Executive President of Council of Economic Development of Sinaloa (CODESIN); and Alvaro Ruelas, Mayor (President) of Ahome County.

Walbro LLC has announced a major expansion of their North American manufacturing operations with the opening of a new Aluminum Die Casting Facility in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. The new facility, which is co-located with Walbro’s Engine Management plant in Los Mochis, will start production this month and will share management, supply chain and administrative services with the existing plant.

“I am pleased to announce Walbro’s latest investment in precision die casting and the continued expansion of our North American production operations,” said Matthew Riddle, Walbro’s President and CEO. “Our team was able to take advantage of over 20 years of die casting experience from our other locations to design and install a world-class die casting facility in Mexico. This capability allows us to serve our existing North American customers with shorter lead times and a broader range of products, while opening the door for opportunities to serve an expanded customer base.”

The plant will initially manufacture flywheels for small engines in the first two installed die casting centers. Due to strong customer interest, plans are already in place to add 6 additional die casting machines. The facility will employ between 60 and 70 additional workers at full capacity.
