Mexicali, Mexico, November 20, 2012: TT electronics today announced the expansion of its North American operations in Mexicali, Mexico with a new state-of-the-art production facility for the company’s portfolio of variable and passive components serving the defense, aerospace, medical, transportation, energy and industrial electronics markets.
The new facility underscores TT electronics’ commitment to its Mexicali operations, which has provided manufacturing services for more than 32 years. The addition of the approximately 68,000ft2 facility, along with a 33% expansion of the existing factory, will bring new production lines to the campus, and will allow the company to significantly increase its local employee base during the next year.

The team has a track record achieving the quality performance and cost competitiveness that will position the division for sustainable growth and profitability.”
Mexicali is an ideal location for the TT electronics Mexico campus, situated in close proximity to major customers as well as the supply and distribution channels in North America. In addition, with three local Universities, Mexicali has an educated and talented workforce.
Jorge De La Torre, Site Director at TT electronics’ Mexicali campus said, “The team in Mexicali is thrilled with the expansion of our campus. We have worked very hard to grow and support our customer base in North America, and look forward to developing our team.”
