ZC Rubber to Build Factory in Mexico

Alongside production, the factory will include a North American warehouse center aimed at enhancing the local distribution.

Zhongce Rubber Group Co., Ltd (ZC Rubber), headquartered in Hangzhou, China, has announced plans for a new factory in Mexico. The company intends to establish a manufacturing facility in Saltillo, potentially covering up to 600,000 square meters. Alongside production, the factory will include a North American warehouse center aimed at enhancing the local distribution network and cost efficiency.

The strategic location of the factory, approximately 250 kilometers from the U.S.-Mexico border, positions it to cater to the demands of both the Mexican and North American markets, the company said. Henry Shen, vice president of ZC Rubber, expressed anticipation for the investment plan, emphasizing the company’s commitment to meeting the region’s increasing demand for quality tires. Shen said, “Our plan to open a tire factory in Mexico demonstrates our commitment to meeting the growing demand for high-quality tires in the region. While we explore this opportunity, we remain focused on our customers’ needs and operational efficiency by setting up a complete local distribution network.”

The new factory aims to adopt the Future Factory concept, prioritizing environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, high automation and overall operational efficiency, the company said.
