TactoTek is partnering with the Prolamsa Group to develop the Mexico IMSE market.

For many global OEMs, operations in Mexico are evolving from being, primarily, a manufacturing destination, to including product design and engineering. "Many automotive, home appliance, and medical equipment OEMs and their suppliers have committed to Mexico for mass production," observed Claudia Garza, TactoTek Business Development, Mexico; "a more recent trend is the growing role of these operations in innovative product design and engineering, skills for which Mexico is being recognized globally, and that matches well with opportunities supported by TactoTek IMSE technology."
TactoTek's expansion into Mexico is an important part of the company's growth strategy: "Increasingly design and engineering projects are truly global in participation," according to Sami Hyyryläinen, SVP Field Operations for TactoTek, "we need to find and support those projects locally and having an experienced team in Mexico puts us on that path."
