The new Tijuana plant, which began operating last month, uses state-of-the-art technology to produce folding carton packaging solutions including boxes and trays. Smurfit Kappa has operated in Mexico for more than 40 years.
“The inauguration of this important operation reflects the Smurfit Kappa Group´s long-term commitment to Mexico and its confidence in the growth of the country´s economy and its markets,” said Eduardo Rubio, VP of packaging for Northern Mexico. “We are confident that this plant and the high-quality products we produce will contribute to the growth of our customers’ business in this region.”
The new Tijuana plant is the third of its type in Mexico, where Smurfit Kappa already operates one folding plant in Cerro Gordo and another in Naucalpan.
