Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Quanta Computer plans to invest US$1.5 billion in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo León, a region that continues to reap benefits thanks to the trend of the nearshoring.
The investment was announced on Twitter by the governor of Nuevo León, Samuel García, in the middle of a visit to Asia and after a meeting with Quanta executives.
According to García, Quanta, manufacturer of laptops and computer equipment that aims to tap into the electric vehicle market, has already invested about $250 million in the state.
“In fact, they liked our state so much that they are already expanding from $250 million to $1.5 billion. And this is only the investment in equipment, the land, the construction and all the logistics of its expansion are missing, ”said García.
The governor continues in Asia, where he seeks to attract more investment to Nuevo León in the technology and electric vehicle segments.
In different Twitter posts, García hinted that Foxconn and Kia would be making investments in the state and announced that he would soon make a big announcement in reference to Foxconn.
Foxconn supplies manufactured components for iPhone, iPad, Kindle, PlayStation, Xbox and GoPro cameras, as well as the semiconductor and electric vehicle industry.
After a meeting with representatives of Foxconn, the governor said that the company will send a delegation to the state to visit the “Americas Mobility of the Future 2023” summit, which will be held in Monterrey, capital of Nuevo León (in the photo), on 6 and July 7.
The governor also met with executives from Delta, manufacturer of components for electric cars, who will also be visiting Nuevo León, and held a meeting with representatives of Pegatron, manufacturer and supplier of Apple.
