Our History & Future

The Fokker/GKN project began from Greenfield in May, 2011. It started with the building of the plant and was finished in November of the same year. In March, 2012, we finished equipping the plant and began production activities.

This was the first of 4 stages of the complete project. Our current facilities are 80,000 sq. ft.

Stage 2 is planned to start in 2018, with an extra 80,000 sq. ft.

Stage 3 and 4 will provide a 160,000 sq. ft. area enlargement by 2022 that will give us a total capacity of 320,000 sq. divided in 4 sections.

Fokker/GKN Aerospace Mexico is fully operational company and we have a visionary plan for 2024, which will look like this…

We have a modern plant that incorporates Lean concepts such as manufacturing flow, KANBAN, VMIU, Pull systems, visual control, 6s and all world-class manufacturing techniques and performance excellence processes.
