OTR, Birmingham Fastener Expand In Mexico


Georgia-based OTR Engineered Solutions’ (OTR) new facility being built in Apodaca, Mexico is scheduled to begin operations on August 1. The Monterrey metropolitan-area site was strategically selected to supply OEM customers with products and value-added services such as tire mounting, sequencing, just-in-time supply and warehousing on a local basis.

Located on a 9.75-acre lot, the 152,738-square-foot building is comparable in size to OTR’s facilities in Rome, GA and Fort Worth, TX. In addition to its proximity to the company’s original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers, the site offers convenient access to main roads and public transportation, helping to attract skilled labor and maximize distribution efficiency.

Construction of the new facility is on schedule. The building has been erected, and tenant improvements are currently being made, including the installation of electric, lighting, compressed air and fire suppression systems, as well as offices.

“We’re eagerly anticipating the August opening of the Apodaca facility so we can begin working even more closely with multiple OEMs operating in the Monterrey area,” said Tom Rizzi, President and CEO, OTR. “This move exemplifies OTR’s commitment to customers and dedication to serving our business partners.”

Upon completion, the Mexico location will mark OTR’s 32nd facility worldwide.

OTR Engineered Solutions specializes in off-the-road tire, wheel and track solutions for OEMs and aftermarkets. The firm has strategic partnerships with OEMs covering construction, lawn & garden, power sports, agriculture, forestry, mining, material handling, and specialty vehicle markets. OTR has 31 facilities and warehouse locations throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia, serving customers globally.
