M. Holland opens new rail-served terminal in Mexico
M. Holland Co. yesterday announced the opening of a new break-bulk terminal in Tultitlan, Mexico, which will be served by a division of Ferrocarril Mexicano S.A. de C.V. (Ferromex).
Located in a secure industrial park, the new facility features 80,000 square feet of warehouse space, a separate break-bulk and processing building that contains packaging and pulverizing equipment, and headquarter offices for the company's Latin American operations, M. Holland officials said in a press release. M. Holland is a distributor of thermoplastic resins.
"We consolidated two separate facilities in the Mexico City area into one highly efficient and perfectly located operation with ample room for our projected growth," said Xavier Lebrija, director general of M. Holland Latino America. "In the process, we tripled our resin pulverizing capacity and doubled our bagging capacity."
The new terminal will unload two rail cars at a time indoors and can accommodate up to 12 cars on a rail spur within the industrial park. Additional track storage is available in an adjacent yard with daily switching. Ferrovalle, a division of Ferromex, will provide the rail service.
"Our mission is to be to be a trusted partner to both suppliers and customers, many of whom need reliable supply chains in a global marketplace," said M. Holland Chief Executive Officer Ed Holland. "We're making the necessary investments to be that reliable channel to market."
