MT. MORRIS TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Rassini S.A.B. de C.V., a Mexican industrial company that designs and manufactures suspension and brake components for the automotive industry, has been awarded a contract for the sixth generation of Ford Motor Co.'s Mustang.
The company said it is supplying brake rotors for the iconic muscle car, with production to take place at its factory in Mt. Morris Township, resulting in a more than 10-percent increase in its workforce in and around Flint, Mich.
“It's an honor and a privilege to partner with our long-time customers at Ford on one of the most iconic and American-made vehicles in the history of our industry,” said Eugenio Madero, CEO of Rassini.
“The continued growth and success of our Mt. Morris Township facility is a result of the hard work and dedication by our employees in Michigan, and we look forward to continuing to work with Ford to meet and deliver upon their needs.”
Rassini, a certified and globally recognized designer and producer of high quality brake components for the automotive industry, will supply 380 mm diameter high carbon brake rotors for the Mustang. The company claimed its rotors for that vehicle “offer precise tolerance to ensure ultimate performance while increasing overall longevity of the parts.”
In addition to operating its Technology Development Center in Plymouth, Mich., Rassini's Mt. Morris Township plant — which opened its doors in 2013 — is the second U.S.-based manufacturing facility for the company. With the addition of a second auto maker supported out of the facility, Rassini said it “is continuing to expand its North American presence, creating additional jobs in Michigan and providing positive economic impact on the township itself.”
