IDRA GROUP is pleased to announce the approval of the opening of a subsidiary company in Mexico.

IDRA GROUP has already three subsidiary companies located in Germany, Usa and China.

We strongly believe in Mexico, and we want to give a tangible signal of it”, said Riccardo Ferrario – General Manager of Idra Group.

We have decided to open it in Garcia - Nuevo Leon, close to Monterrey. The location has been selected close one of our most important Mexican customers”.

The company will offer local service support to our Mexican customers, with dedicated service engineering team and spare parts stored in its warehouse. Besides, IDRA MX will have the mission of further developing the Mexican market, which is very promising for our business.

Mexico is attracting new investors of the automotive business and has strong and solid infrastructures. Garcia is also the perfect place for better serving the southern Us States and South America.

We can also count on two important partners in Mexico:

  • Automac, our official agent and service dealer based on Queretaro.

  • Artimpianti de Mexico, our new partner.

Artimpianti de Mexico is part of the Artimpianti Group, an Italian leading company for foundry automation, service, refurbishing and commissioning of equipment.

We believe that, together, we can better grow in Mexico. In fact, Artimpianti has great experience in gravity, low pressure and sand technology while Idra is strong in high Pressure Die Casting technology. Together we can cover the whole aluminum and Magnesium foundry business”.

Artimpianti has decided to expand its Mexican subsidiary company and construct a new building, which will also be the industrial site of IDRA MX.

IDRA MX will be operative in the first quarter 2018, when the new building under construction will be finished.

I would also take this opportunity to thank Alberto Botta, founder and owner of Artimpianti, and Ugo Racca, responsible of Artimpianti de Mexico who have given us this great opportunity of synergies. Alberto and I have worked for the foundry business since we were young, both starting our working experience with Teksid Italy in the ‘80s, and it is fantastic to count on friends for our strategic new initiative in Mexico”.
