Sierra Aluminum, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., Ltd., plans to expand its extrusion, anodizing, and painting capacity. The company will construct a greenfield extrusion facility in Mexicali, Mexico, as well as making new investments in its existing facilities in Riverside and Fontana, California.
“We’re very fortunate to have long-standing relationships with many committed customers and have sometimes been challenged to keep pace with their growth due to capacity constraints,” said Victor Toscano, president of Sierra Aluminum. “With our new, state-of-the-art facility in Mexicali and additional extrusion capacity in California, we’ll be able to expand and meet customer demand with a long-term solution.”
Sierra Aluminum will break ground on the new 300,000 sq ft facility in Mexicali, which will be located three hours from the company’s current operations. The facility is expected to be complete in 2023.
Both of the California facilities will also have a new extrusion line installed. These investments will enable Sierra to support the growth plans of existing customers throughout the U.S., as well as providing the opportunity to build new business relationships.
“Since acquiring Sierra in 2018, we have worked to modernize facilities and enhance our competitive advantage,” stated Colin Osborne, president and CEO of Samuel. “These new investments will allow us to expand customer relationships and introduce ourselves to new customers in the U.S. and Mexico.”
