Attracting Mexican firms to German technology

A total of 17 German machine-tool manufacturers arrived in Mexico recently to establish and cultivate close contacts. The VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association) organised two technology symposia in Querétaro and Monterrey in the first week of December. Around 300 high-calibre customers took part in the events, which proved a resounding success.

Mexican demand for German machine tools has quadrupled since 2010, reaching approximately €372m last year. Germany has thus established itself as the third largest supplier to Mexican manufacturers after the USA and Japan. In addition to organising presentations, B2B meetings and two factory visits, the German companies also spent time familiarising themselves with processes in Mexico’s traditionally strong automotive and aerospace industries.
