Dürr de México was founded as early as 1966. The company has since supplied almost all carmakers represented in Mexico with painting technology and other production equipment. For a number of years now, Dürr de México has also participated in handling orders placed by the aircraft industry.
Together with the US company Dürr Systems Inc., Dürr de México constitutes a powerful North America unit. The two companies are run by a shared management team. As part of the global production and engineering network of the Dürr Group, Dürr de México also supports large-scale projects in other regions of the world, such as in China and North Africa.
The construction of the new location in Querétaro in central Mexico is part of a global investment program with which Dürr adjusts its capacities in response to the growing volume of business. From 2009 to 2012, Group sales increased from € 1.1 to € 2.4 billion. Further growth is expected in 2013. Against this backdrop, Dürr plans to raise the level of investments to approx. € 50 million in the current year (2012: € 32.5 million).
At the end of September, the Group commissioned a new mechanical engineering location with over 600 employees in Shanghai. Dürr has also invested in newbuilds or in modernizing locations in Germany, South Africa, Poland, Brazil, and Switzerland. In Japan, a technology center with demonstration facilities is to be built in the near future.
