On Wednesday, the 15th of May, Superior held a commemorative groundbreaking ceremony in Chihuahua, Mexico for our New Wheel Plant, soon to be Plant 15.
Steven Borick, the Chairman, President and CEO of Superior, the Governor of the State of Chihuahua, and a number of distinguished guests including Mexican government officials, local business dignitaries and Superior staff from Corporate, Arkansas and Chihuahua plants were present at the events.
Mr. Borick gave a rousing speech and recognized the hard work of our Superior team in making this New Wheel Plant a reality. He also recognized Jorge Caballero, who will lead this project for Superior and ultimately assume responsibility as the General Manager once the facility is operational. The Governor, Sr. Cesar Horacio Duarte Jaquez, also gave an exciting speech and toted that, with the startup of this new Superior Facility, Chihuahua will produce the greatest number of aluminum wheels in the world!
After the speeches, Mr. Borick and Sr. Duarte proceeded to the groundbreaking site to ceremoniously place the first brick at the location and then proceeded to mortar the brick in place. The local press took advantage of this important event, taking photographs that were used in newspaper articles and newscasts seen throughout Mexico the next day.
After the groundbreaking, there was an opportunity for Superior employees to meet with business and government officials to discuss next steps in the construction process. It is anticipated that the facility will be operational in early 2015.
With the construction of the New Wheel Plant, Superior continues to affirm its leadership in the global automotive landscape as the premier manufacturer of aluminum wheels, and to ensure a healthy and prosperous future for our employees!
