Plastic Injection Molding Industry in Nogales, Mexico

In the early 2000’s plastic injection molding became a core competency for many of the manufacturing plants in Nogales.  Companies such as Badger Meter, MTD and Chamberlain have vertically integrated and included plastic injection molding processes in Nogales. Along with this advancement came the challenges of developing a workforce suited for this work.

As a result, the industry worked side-by-side with local academia and donated equipment and machinery, so that the Instituto Tecnologico de Nogales (the largest 4-year engineering university in Noglales) could develop the Plastic Injection Molding minor in their mechatronics engineering degree.  This ensured a skilled and educated workforce to help support this industry.
