SILAO, Mexico— Pirelli Neumaticos S.A. has passed a production milestone — the 5 millionth unit produced ahead of schedule at its plant in Silao, Mexico.
The plant passed the milestone June 18, just three years after production at the facility was commissioned.
To celebrate the occasion, Pirelli invited Miguel Marquez Marquez, governor of Guanajuato, and Guillermo Romero Pacheco, secretary of economic development of Guanajuato, to a ceremony at the plant.
Pirelli Neumaticos CEO and Managing Director Thomas Grávalos and Fernando Madeira Toledo, industrial director, hosted the event along with other executives and staff of the plant.
The tire maker did not say how far ahead of schedule the plant is, but did say the achievement reflected the “important work and ability of Pirelli's partners to implement high quality technology, production processes and productivity.”
