SSI SCHAEFER Opens New Reusable Packaging Fabrication Facility for Mexico

The Packaging Systems Division of SSI Schaefer Systems International, a leader in reusable packaging systems, has expanded production capabilities with a new manufacturing facility in San Luis Potosi, SLP, Mexico.

SSI Schaefer Packaging, SA de CV, is centrally located in Mexico, and is the newest addition for SSI Schaefer Group headquartered in Neunkirchen, Germany. The San Luis Potosi plant will service existing and new clients located within Mexico. The new 8,500 square meter facility opened March 1, 2017.

“We’re committed to being a long-term partner for our clients located within the region,” said Dave McCulloch, CEO of Schaefer Systems International’s packaging systems division. “Schaefer innovates products for green logistics. It’s only fitting that we also practice sustainability too. The new facility drastically shortens delivery time while reducing logistical delivery costs for our clients located in and around Mexico.  We chose San Luis Potosi for its excellent logistical location for both highway, rail transportation and its proximity to sea container port access,” continued McCulloch.

SSI Schaefer Packaging, SA de CV is one of two companies within Mexico for SSI SCHAEFER HOLDING. The new packaging fabrication plant will provide turn-key packaging solutions servicing the automotive, aerospace, home appliance, electronic, heavy-equipment, and recreation vehicle industries. The significant investment made by SSI SCHAEFER into the state San Luis Potosi will generate approximately 50 jobs over the next several years.
