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.

Livingston Family firefighters. 🔥 👩‍🚒 🚒 When @trailrunningmom “smoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
From race directing to @thecubscouts directing. Proud day for our son, @trailrunningmom and the rest of #cubscouts Pack 157 Den 5 as they earned their Arrow of Light. Four of her boys are moving to @boyscoutsofamerica #scoutsbsa after five years of fun and learning.
