GF Division leaders host grand opening of Mexico facility


GF Machining Solutions (GFMS) and GF Piping Systems (GFPS) hosted a grand opening celebration for the 75,000-square-foot  Apodaca, Mexico, joint headquarters begun in 2019 and recently finished.

Manufacturing and community leaders joined the early May celebration to tour the state-of-art facility, see the sales and service support team in action, and meet GFMS and GFPM leaders.

The new headquarters’ location in Apodaca was strategically selected to provide current and future customers in Mexico and Latin America streamlined sales service and shorter delivery times.

“Our plan for the facility has always centered on our customers,” said Chris Jones, president – head of market region North & Central America. “The grand opening reinforces our commitment to the region’s manufacturers by maximizing access to GF’s broad range of high-quality machining and piping technologies.”

“Whether OEM, engineering firm, or distributor, we look forward to showcasing the new facility,” said Horacio Pena, managing director, GFMS, Mexico, S.A., C.V. “Its size provides them with a unique space for increased stock capacity, training, customized pipe applications and machining prototyping.”
