DENSO Integrates ASMO MEXICO Facility Into Mexico Operations

Irapuato Plant integration supports DENSO’s growth in the region.

DENSO, a leading mobility supplier, announced it has integrated its Irapuato Plant, previously part of ASMO Mexico, into its DENSO Mexico operations. The successful integration was celebrated with a ceremony on April 14 attended by the Governor of Guanajuato, Diego Sinhué Rodríguez Vallejo; Irapuato Mayor Ricardo Ortiz Gutiérrez; CEO of DENSO’s North American operations Seiji Maeda (virtually); and DENSO Mexico President Hiromasa Hakamada, among others.

The Irapuato Plant employs more than 640 employees and produces DENSO wipers for customers across North America. Operations there began in 2016 and the facility is located at Parque Industrial Castro del Río in Irapuato, Guanajuato. This is DENSO’s fourth facility in Mexico, with other locations in Apodaca City, Guadalupe City, and Silao City.

In 2019, DENSO fully integrated its consolidated subsidiary ASMO companies in the United States into its North American operations. These integrations, including the Irapuato Plant’s, bolster DENSO’s Long-term plan 2030 to create new value for mobility and society.

The integrations also support Reborn 21, DENSO’s internal initiative to operate more efficiently and flexibly to enhance competitiveness. As part of this, DENSO is focused on creating technologies that are “Green” – acting environmentally friendly – and offer “Peace of Mind” – delivering safe and seamless mobility. The Irapuato Plant advances these efforts and strengthens DENSO’s North American production network.
