Commercial Vehicle Group Inc. is constructing a new wire harness facility in Agua Prieta, Mexico, to serve the construction, agriculture and specialty vehicle markets, according to the supplier company.
CVG said the 140,000-square-foot facility is being built on 14 acres next to its current operation.
It is expected to be completed by the end of the year with capacity for 1,500 employees, according to the New Albany, Ohio, company.
Separately, CVG announced the promotion of two executives as division leaders for the global truck and bus segment.
Greg Boese will serve as senior vice president and managing director for seats, and Dale McKillop will serve as senior vice president and managing director for trim and structures.
The segment president role, formerly held by Patrick Miller prior to his November 2015 promotion to CEO, will not be filled.
“This new organizational structure deploys two of our best proven leaders and allows for an increased focus on our GTB product growth efforts,” Miller said in a statement. “Dale and Greg bring deep experience and market knowledge to these new roles. With their appointment, we are flattening the GTB segment resulting in greater speed and flexibility for our customers and employees.”
