Bosch will invest 100 million euros in a new plant in Celaya (Mexico). The company plans to build a new smart factory for electronic components in the central Mexican city by 2020. The goal is to create more than 1,200 additional jobs at the new location in Celaya in the coming years. “We are planning to make the new manufacturing facility in Celaya a smart factory with state-of-the-art, intelligent production lines – Stefan Hartung, member of the Bosch board of management, said -. For example, the plant will employ a manufacturing execution system (MES), which automatically collects data and shares production information in real time. This makes possible both preventive maintenance of machinery and higher product quality. The system also digitally connects the plant to the Bosch Group’s global manufacturing network”.
