High-tech components manufacturer SATA Group is set to construct an $114M machine plant in Brownsville, Texas.
The 350-acre development will be located on newly designated Interstate 169 and will include a vertically-integrated machining-foundry-forging operation by 2020.
Further plans include an aluminium die cast operation, a plastic injection molder, a distribution centre and an apprenticeship training centre.
SATA’s USA vice president Pietro Cinotto said: “Our level of quality and superior manufacturing productivity created a global demand for our machined products and services.
“It grew to the point where it made sense for us to enter the North American market and that’s when Brownsville, Texas came into our site selection process. The overwhelming support helped us make the decision to settle in Brownsville.”
The project is expected to create 300 jobs in the region.
