Mexican Steel producer Simec recently announced an investment of $600 million in a facility in the state of Tlaxcala. Steel produced there will be utilized in the Mexican automotive industry and is based on the relative scarcity of this vital raw material in Mexico. Simec will develop its steel production to supply automakers in the state of Puebla, as well as other manufacturers located throughout the Mexican republic. Such new production source will decrease the need for importing automotive steel and will strengthen the Mexican automotive industry generally.
