Feliz Aniversario!

A little more than a year ago, Horst Engineering launched a maquiladora operation, Horst Engineering de Mexico, in Nogales, Sonora. The past year has seen a wonderful progression of growth. However, the ultimate success will be determined down the road because this is a long term investment to expand the company’s capabilities, customer base, and markets. We have experienced many of the usual challenges that any start up operation faces, but after a year, things are really shaping up and our team is ready for the next phase of growth. During the first year, our focus was on developing and scaling our CNC turning and CNC milling processes at the Nogales plant. In East Hartford, we specialized in those two manufacturing processes as well as CNC Swiss screw machining, thread rolling, centerless grinding, assembly, and a variety of other processes.

Mexico is very much a developing economy, but we need Mexico (specifically the manufacturing supply chain in the state of Sonora), to develop further in order for us to benefit from our proximity to the industrial corridor that exists between Phoenix, Arizona and Guaymas, Sonora. Sonora has long been known for its automotive and electronics industries, expecially in the capital, Hermosillo, but in recent years, lower volume/higher precision businesses, like precision machining, have been expanding into Sonora and elsewhere in Mexico.

Our success has been driven by the commitment of our strong team of supportive East Hartford associates, the core team of associats that has developed at the maquiladora in Nogales, the commitment of our supply chain partners, and the support of our customers. This commitment is cemented by the fact that we have a strategy to expand in both the United States and Mexico in an effort to further establish Horst Engineering as a global supplier of high precision components to aerospace and other high technology industries.

Two days of #crawfordnotch views sandwiched with @appalachianmountainclub meeting. Cycling on Rt. 302, #trailrunning on the Crawford Path, and Mount Willard. #newhampshire 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ Sites and sounds from Day 2 @gpgloucester #gpgloucester The fog was burning off by the end of the Cub Juniors 9-14 year old race.

#horstspikes #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross #horstengineering #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa 🇺🇸 It was great to see so many friends at today’s Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race. We all ran the 2-Miler. We couldn’t stay long after the finish, but we did see Kelsey Allen win overall in the 10.5 Mile main event. Hooray! #trailrunning 🏃🏻 Before and after the Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club’s Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race in the #Berkshires I rode (very wet) over from Savoy Mountain State Forest where we camped last night. On the ride along the #DeerfieldRiver I checked out #ZoarGap and then we walked down to the river to see the Tooth. Sadly, the kayakers had already passed through. The foliage turned overnight. #trailrunning #cycling 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ #Cyclocross racing in the morning and downhill #mountainbiking @thundermountainbikepark in the afternoon. We got in two late afternoon runs on rental bikes and are pumped to return for more fun in the future. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #thundermountainbikepark #berkshireeast 🚵‍♀️⛰ 30 kids in the 9-12 year old Race at the #mansfieldhollow #Cyclocross That’s just awesome! @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #crossspikes #crossisboss This image was from pregame, but approaching halftime @uconnfootball there aren’t many more fans than you see here. 35 (Memphis ) to 21 (UCONN) is a lot of points in 30 minutes of #football #uconn This morning I got to hear Warren Rustand, inspirational entrepreneur and fellow @ypoglobal member, speak at a #ypo Connecticut River Valley Chapter meeting. It was fitting that the event was @riverfrontrecapture and literally ON the #connecticutriver I walked from @horsteng via my favorite train bridge. The 10 minute trip back to the plant was ample time to reflect on the #leadership lessons that he shared with our group. @garyrome and I decided that we should memorialize our time with this dedicated athlete, by requesting that he join our photo. #horstengineering #business Fantastic but FRUSTRATING race at The Night Weasels Cometh #cyclocross Was charging hard but punctured with two to go and rode 3/4ths of a lap on my rear flat before getting to my pit bike. I just glued this tubular two nights ago. Grrrr! Gave up more than a dozen spots. This string of bad luck will end and my fitness will pay off. Still not a bad ending to a work day. Onward! #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #nightweasels 🚴🏽 🌕
