Rivulis Expands Global Footprint with New Factory in Leon, Mexico
The new factory reinforces Rivulis’ commitment to making micro irrigation accessible globally by manufacturing the most extensive line of micro irrigation solutions and products in Mexico, for Mexico.
Gvat, Israel & Leon, Mexico – Rivulis, a global micro irrigation solutions innovator offering the broadest portfolio in the market featuring the industry’s most recognized product brands, including T-Tape and Ro-Drip, announced today that it is expanding its global footprint with the establishment of a new, state-of-the-art factory in Leon, Mexico.
Located in the Parque Industrial Advance Puerto Interior in the city of Leon, the new Rivulis factory is set to become the largest drip irrigation factory in the Americas and started manufacturing operations earlier this month. By the end of 2019, the factory is expected to reach an annual capacity of half a billion meters of drip line and drip tape with room to expand in the future.
“This multi-million dollar investment in the heart of Mexico’s agriculture zone highlights our long term commitment to the Mexican market and allows us to better serve the region we have operated in for the past 25 years,” says Richard Klapholz, CEO of Rivulis. “We have an outstanding business partner ecosystem here and chose this location in the center of Mexico to help our business partners grow beyond their business expectations.
The new Rivulis factory in Mexico is central to the Rivulis business and global footprint strategy and applies the same high quality standards and manufacturing techniques and processes as Rivulis does for all of its 15 factories around the world.
“This is an investment in Mexico and for the Mexican grower’s community. I am also particularly proud of the fact that the factory is managed entirely by a local Mexican team,” says Fabien Kelbert, President of the North America Business Unit. “We provided the team with an intense training program to ensure we continue to provide the same high quality products Rivulis is known for around the world. The Mexican team members who have joined us at the Leon facility are truly outstanding world-class engineers and technicians.”
In addition to the new Mexico facility, Rivulis has manufacturing and distribution facilities in Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, India, Spain, Turkey and the United States of America.
