Bendix Monterrey, Mexico technical center marks five years

The center now has 80 engineers and roughly three dozen administrative employees in a facility expanded to more than 25,500 square feet.

Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems is celebrating five years of its Technical Center in Monterrey, Mexico. Having opened in 2018 with 34 employees – 32 of them engineers – in a 7,800-square-foot space, the center now has 80 engineers and roughly three dozen administrative employees in a facility expanded to more than 25,500 square feet, Bendix says.

“The Monterrey facility – designed to help expand Bendix’s global engineering capabilities – was aimed at growth from the start, and it has more than delivered for the company and our customers,” said Claus Beyer, vice president of ADAS/HAD North America and chief engineer at Bendix. “It’s an invaluable contributor as we bring Bendix’s expertise to bear in the introduction of emerging technologies, from vehicle electrification to automated and autonomous vehicles.”

After holding steady on the forecast since last July, ACT Research has pushed 2024 Class 8 production and sales expectations up in February, as published in the latest release of ACT's North American Commercial Vehicle Outlook.

“In addition to an improving economic outlook, the decision to boost the forecast, despite near-term inventory risks, reflects the industry’s ability to more aggressively sell into Mexico and export markets, while maintaining strength in domestic vocational,” said Kenny Vieth, ACT’s president and senior analyst. “The 2024 market is atypically bifurcated: considerable strength remaining in U.S. and Canadian vocational markets and Mexico helps offset otherwise weak demand in U.S. and Canadian tractor markets, LTL excluded.”
