Mondragon Assembly, a cooperative with its central headquarters in Aretxabaleta (Gipuzkoa, Spain) that specialises in the development of automation and assembly solutions, recently received an order for the production of twelve lighting component assembly lines from a well-known multinational in the automotive sector. They will consist of a set of equipment offering the highest performance features in automation solutions, which will allow the client to improve the productivity of their assembly lines dramatically.

One of the singular features of this new project is that Mondragon Assembly's human teams working from various locations will share the assembly line engineering and production tasks. This collaborative work will make it possible to install three lines in an initial phase, which will be manufactured at Mondragon Assembly's plants in China, Mexico and Europe. The rest will be progressively installed up to 2021.

Iñigo Vélez de Mendizabal, Director of the Automation division, noted that “this project represents another step forward in the consolidation of Mondragon Assembly as a global supplier of automated solutions.  Thanks to the multi-site distribution of our plants, we can offer our clients to develop the same project in different regions”.
