Visteon opens new technical center in Querétaro
Visteon Corporation celebrated the grand opening of a newly constructed engineering center in Querétaro. The Visteon Querétaro Technical Center is home to highly skilled software, hardware and mechanical engineers responsible for developing advanced cockpit electronics products for North America-based vehicle manufacturers.
These products include digital instrument clusters, infotainment and information displays – and new technologies for connected and autonomous driving. Reflecting a multimillion dollar investment, the new engineering center complements the Visteon’s global headquarters and technical center in Van Buren Township, Michigan (U.S.).
The 6,000-square meter world-class engineering center includes two floors of collaborative workspace, four stories of underground parking and amenities such as a gym, outdoor terrace and on-site cafeteria. The facility is expected to reach full capacity of nearly 600 employees within a year. Visteon’s highly skilled employees support growth with the company’s North America customers, such as Ford, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, General Motors, Nissan and Honda.
Visteon plans to create a complete technology campus and further expand its presence in Querétaro. The company has acquired office space minutes away from new technical center, which will be transformed into a unique laboratory building. The lab will support vibration, environmental and electromagnetic compatibility testing, and it will be a fully capable DV/PV certification testing laboratory with up to 20 testing chambers.
The 2,175 square meter lab will house 35 engineers and technicians, and include a 460-square meter mezzanine for up to another 70 engineers.
Construction of the new lab is expected to be complete in the first half of 2020.
