Standard Register Establishes Operations in Mexico
Press release from the issuing company
DAYTON, Ohio, March 29 -- Standard Register has announced plans to establish operations in Monterrey, Mexico, during the second quarter of 2006, as a way to increase customer support to businesses who have manufacturing operations in Mexico.
"We are helping our customers survive in today's competitive global market," said Tom Furey, vice president and general manager of Standard Register's Document and Label Solutions division. "We want to serve our customers, wherever they have operations, so we acted when we saw the opportunity to expand our business in a new direction."
Standard Register de Mexico, a wholly-owned international subsidiary of Standard Register, will have a 30,000-square-foot production and service facility that will provide label printing, warehousing, kitting and digital on-demand printing. It intends to employ approximately 30 employees, including a bilingual support staff.
Furey added, "Not only will our customers have the opportunity to save money through shorter lead times and just-in-time inventory from our Mexico facility, but they will receive the high-quality service and broad-based national support they have come to rely on from Standard Register, at the local level."
Since it is such a new venture, projections on revenue or employee growth would only be speculative, according to Furey. However, this new location is part of Standard Register's effort to support customers around the globe.
