Schneider Electric opened its first smart factory in Mexico, a showcase for customers and partners to witness how digital transformation can help them make informed, data-driven decisions that bring about improved profitability, asset management performance, operational efficiency and a smarter productive workforce while keeping the operations secure, agile and environmentally sustainable.

Schneider Electric integrates its EcoStruxure solutions spanning connected products into its manufacturing operations to show the value of transitioning to a smart factory and how easy it is to start its digitisation journey. Smart Factories form a core component in its own Tailored Sustainable Connected 4.0 supply chain digital transformation within its global supply chain organisation, where it leverages digitisation to deliver end-to-end integration and visibility across its supply chain operations to enhance overall performance.

Enrique Gonzalez Haas, Country President Schneider Electric Mexico and Central America, said, “At Schneider Electric, we continue to bring the digital transformation to the Mexican economy, so the new smart factory in Monterrey, as an innovation showcase, is an example of how manufacturing facilities can be more efficient, profitable and sustainable with the use of technology, and a look at the new era of Industry 4.0.”
