The 4900sq.m office, which is located in the state’s capital city of Guadalajara, includes office space and service workshops.

Officials said it opened the location to strengthen its presence for Mexican clients, an area experiencing steady growth.

“The development of these new facilities reflects our confidence in the growth of the mining business in Mexico, which is demonstrated by the strong demand for products and services experienced by mining companies operating in the country,” Sandvik Mining president Gary Hughes said during a recent inauguration ceremony.

Sandvik Mining Americas president David Gardner highlighted the company’s 150-year industry history.

“[It demonstrates] our confidence, not only in the local mining industry but also in the Mexican economy’s growth possibilities and stability,” he said.

“[W]e hope that from here we will continue together on a journey of success and growth for many years to come.”

Mining is one of Mexico’s largest employers and is also the country’s largest private investor.

The ceremony in Guadalajara was attended by Swedish ambassador to Mexico Jorgen Persson as well as Tlajomulco de Zuniga municipality president Alberto Uribe Camacho.

Also present were Jalisco business development secretary Jaime Eduardo Martínez Flores and Sandvik Mining Mexico clients’ workers and representatives.
