Taiwanese electronics manufacturer, Quanta Computer, has set its sights on Mexico's northern state of Nuevo Leon, with a whopping $1 billion investment plan.
The announcement, made by Governor Samuel Garcia in an exciting video shared on Twitter, promises not only a massive boost to the local economy but also the creation of 2,500 new jobs. The investment builds upon Quanta's existing presence in Nuevo Leon, where the company has already invested nearly $500 million and generated 2,500 jobs.
It's worth noting that Quanta Computer is a key supplier to renowned electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla. This investment in Nuevo Leon aligns with Tesla's plans to establish a $5 billion factory in the city of Monterrey, signalling a collaborative effort to propel the region's electric vehicle ecosystem.
In an intriguing twist, Governor Garcia also held a meeting with executives from Taiwanese electronics giant, Foxconn, a prominent supplier to Apple. Teasing a "big announcement" on Twitter, Garcia revealed discussions focused on electric vehicle development opportunities in Nuevo Leon. While no concrete details were shared, this meeting hints at potential future collaborations and exciting prospects for Foxconn's involvement in the state's growing electric vehicle industry.
With these significant investments from Quanta Computer, Nuevo Leon is rapidly positioning itself as a vibrant hub for electronics manufacturing and an increasingly influential player in the electric vehicle sector.
