Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, plans to open a new supply chain office in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico. This new office will strengthen collaboration with key suppliers in a region that is widely recognized as the leading aerospace industry cluster in Mexico.
Beverly J. Gaskin, Rolls-Royce, executive vice president, supply chain management – North America states: "Nearly a third of advanced manufacturing companies in the Mexican aerospace industry are based in the state of Sonora. Locating staff in the center of this cluster will help us improve supplier relationships and performance. Delivering excellence in our supply chain is critical in helping us meet our commitments to customers."
Guillermo Padres, Sonora State Governor says, "The State of Sonora is proud that Rolls-Royce has chosen to locate one of its global network of purchasing offices in the state. It confirms that Mexico is an increasingly important player in the aerospace manufacturing industry and that the State of Sonora is the Mexican hub for aero-engine components manufacturing. The presence of a Rolls-Royce supply management office in Sonora is a significant tribute and will make a contribution to our aero-engine cluster."
The new office will be located in the Parque Industrial Roca Fuerte, which is near several key suppliers to Rolls-Royce. The office will be staffed with six Rolls-Royce employees.
