El Paso, Texas (PressExposure) May 06, 2013 -- Viasystems, recently participated in a manufacturing project aimed at making Japan's nuclear power industry safer. The goal of the effort was to create a fail safe source of back up power for the country's reactors.
The company manufactures mechanical-electrical systems integration frames for uninterruptible power systems. The work was done at Viasystems' 200,000 square foot production facility located in Ciudad Juarez's Verde Realty Industrial Park. The finished product will be installed at Japanese nuclear facilities for the purpose of ensuring that power plant energy supplies will not experience interruptions during emergency situations or when nuclear power is lost. Viasystems operates its Ciudad Juarez facility under the Tecma Group of Companies' Mexico Shelter Manufacturing Partnership.
According to Viasystems' General Manager, Homero Galindo, "The fact that our company was chosen to be a participant in this important project is a testament to the quality of the work done here in our Ciudad Juarez plant. In addition to an excellent, trained and productive Mexican workforce, our relationship with the Tecma Group of Companies helps us to achieve manufacturing quality. The services that Tecma provides under its Mexico Shelter Manufacturing Partnership eliminates the need for us to commit time, monetary and other resources to issues that have nothing to do with making our product. This allows us to focus fully on the quality of the production that leaves our plant."
