REYNOSA, Tamaulipas — Looking forward to a commercial agreement, officials from the State of Tamaulipas met with representatives of KIA Motors México, this week in Pesquería, Nuevo León.

The Secretary for Economic Development for Tamaulipas, Carlos W. Talancón Ostos, had a meeting with Woo Yoel Park, CEO for KIA Motors México, inside the industrial plant the company has on Pesquería.

Talancón was able to look into the assembling process and took the opportunity to mention the strategic location of the State of Tamaulipas, its infinite resources, qualified workforce, and its infrastructure. He was able to meet with an investment promotion team and first level officers for KIA Motors México.

According to a press release, the idea is to show the elements available for the car assembly company, while hoping to establish a commercial synergy which will help to develop and impulse the region as an important financial and supply chain for Tamaulipas.

In Pesquería, KIA has state-of-the-art technology, with around 600 programmed robots to comply with a variety of actions, but also employees almost 2.000 workers. The company produces almost 900 vehicles per day in that plant.

Talancón said that Tamaulipas is ready to provide support to the auto industry, because of all our competitive advantages for the region.
