Optimas Solutions, a manufacturer and distributor of fasteners, has announced it will open a cold form manufacturing plant in Monterrey, Mexico, in the second half of 2024.

The Mexico production center will complement the company’s manufacturing facilities in Wood Dale, Ill., and Droitwich Spa in the United Kingdom, as well as continue the company’s near-shoring efforts to minimize supply chain risk, officials said.

“More than ever, resource availability has given way to accessibility in the form of regionalization,” said Daniel Harms, CEO of Americas. “Our expanding localization strategy enables us to be more agile with our manufacturing and sourcing capabilities for industrial customers and suppliers.”

Optimas Solutions is one of a few companies with in-house cold forming in the U.S., UK, and now Mexico, which the company says complements global distribution for fasteners and C-class parts procurement.

“We took great care to design our Mexico facility to mirror our capabilities at our manufacturing operations in Wood Dale so they can effectively play off each other,” said Ricardo Alonzo Rodríguez, vice president and general manager of Optimas in México. “This ensures customers and suppliers have access to the same engineering, tooling, manufacturing and quality processes regardless of where we produce the fasteners.”
