Mexican Sojourn

The second part of my Southwest trip last week was to Horst Engineering de Mexico in Nogales, Sonora. Tucson is the primary gateway city that Horst Engineering associates use when traveling to the maquiladora. This was a short trip to tour the factory, review the recent progress, meet the new second shift associates, and meet with the leadership team of a key supplier. Fortunately my flight to Tucson was only delayed thirty minutes. The delay when I flew from BDL to San Juan, Puerto Rico last month was caused by a mechanical problem, but the short delay leaving Las Vegas was caused by a passenger who got locked in the lavatory prior to takeoff. It took several Southwest Airlines mechanics, a drill, and a crow bar to get him out. He exited to cheers from his fellow passengers who were patiently strapped into their seats.

I was excited to tour Nogales on the Mexican side of the border with two key Horst Engineering colleagues, my parents, Lynn and Stan Livingston. We witnessed the ongoing growth of Nogales and saw several new plants. We were especially pleased to see the pace of expansion in the HEDM plant, which is only matched by the progress at our main plant in East Hartford, Connecticut. Our day trip to Mexico was highlighted upon our return to the US side by a spectacular sunset.

A lovely sunset over two countries.

The Santa Rita Mountains stand out in the distance.

@bentwaterbrewing #bentwaterbrewing #pulpfiction #lynnlynnthecityofsin Overnight with @boyscoutsofamerica Troop 25 at the 4-H Camp in Pomfret. The toboggan run was hairy! I just watched. #boyscouts That moment when @trailrunningmom discovered that our longtime #Christmas Tree 🌲 supplier is a regular student in her #yoga class. They previously hadn’t recognized each other when not wearing #yogini gear. It was great to hear how our farmer has improved her strength and flexibility since she took over the business from her late husband. Note: preparing our menorah for #hannukah takes less work than this! Lovely December day for #Cyclocross at Goddard Park. @nbx_bikes #nbxcx @vittoriaseries #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad @horsteng #crossspikes #rhodeisland Lovely day for more than 130 #BoltonLandTrust members and friends at the annual Walk of #Thanksgiving #bolton #connecticut 🌲 #blackfriday didn’t start so badly! Great day at the #manchesterroadrace @shenipsitstriders #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #thanksgiving 🏃🏻 If I always had the option to commute by train 🚂, I would take it. #multitasking 1h45m each way if uninterrupted productivity and NO driving. I even squeezed in a lap of #centralpark with Tim. 🏃🏻#manhattan #newyork Fir @john.meyerle because I neglected to post earlier: @supercross_cup This video is the Cat 4/5 Men. Great start for @the_ccap boys Nick and Johnny. #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #crossspikes @horsteng #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross
