DQS de México goes ZoomZoom
Just last year, the new Mazda plant in Mexico was formally inaugurated in Salamanca, Guanajuato. This is a vital complex for the company based in Hiroshima, since it will be the origin of the Mazda3 and Mazda2 vehicles (the next generation and with SKYACTIV technology) to be exported to North America, South America and Europe. For an investment of $ 770 million, the plant is scheduled to produce 230,000 units annually, and to employ 4,600 people once it reaches capacity in 2016. By then it will also manufacture 50,000 units of a subcompact Toyota model annually.
