Walbro Expands Manufacturing Operations

By Chad Elmore25 July 2017

Walbro LLC has expanded its North American manufacturing operation with a new aluminum die-casting facility in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. The new facility, co-located with the company’s Engine Management plant, will share management, supply chain and administrative services with the existing operation.

The plant will initially manufacture flywheels for small engines in the first two installed die-casting centers. Plans are already in place to add six additional die-casting machines, said the company. The facility will employ between 60 and 70 additional workers at full capacity.

Based in Tucson, Ariz., Walbro has manufacturing and engineering facilities in China, Japan, Mexico, Thailand and the United States.
