Vertiv opens Mexico plant

In order to create and test thermal management technologies for the local and regional data centre market, Ohio-based telecoms and energy management infrastructure supplier Vertiv established a 40,000m2 facility in Monterrey, Mexico.

According to a statement from Vertiv, the facility, which is being constructed on an 80,000m2 plot of land in the state capital of Nuevo León, will specialise in cooling systems for hyperscale data centre clients and should create “hundreds of new jobs” by 2023.

The plant was just officially inaugurated now but has been running since June when it went active. There have been no specifics on the investments made in the plant.

Engineering operations make up the majority of the new positions that the company is trying to fill for the plant. The company listed these as having personnel with specialised training and experience in rack power distribution and integration, alternative materials and refrigerants development, design of new products to increase energy efficiency, capacity, and footprint, and power distribution and cooling solutions.

The new site in Mexico will help Vertiv continue to grow its market position in the area, according to COO Jason Forcier. Ascenty, Equinix, ODATA, and Scala are just a few of the top hyperscale data centre builders in Latin America to whom Vertiv supplies.
