Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas has broken ground on a new production facility in Houston, Texas, US.

The new facility will enhance the company’s production capabilities to better meet the rising demand for electric lift trucks and warehouse products in the country.

Situated at the Houston headquarters campus of Logisnext, the new facility will enable the production of key electric warehouse items across the Jungheinrich, Mitsubishi forklift trucks, Cat lift trucks, and UniCarriers Forklift product lines.

It is seen as a significant investment in the company’s long-term electric growth strategy, aimed at providing better support to its customers across North America.

The facility will have a total floor area of 73,000ft² and will serve as a dedicated space for in-house welding and painting of masts and frames.

Furthermore, it will leverage advanced technologies and techniques such as Mixed Model Line Design, Industry 4.0 process monitoring, and the one-piece flow methodology.

“We’re committed to investing in our manufacturing capabilities and new product development to ensure we continue providing our customers with the most advanced, yet sustainable, electric products and solutions in the future.”
