Indo-MIM has opened its first overseas manufacturing facility in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The plant, which cost approximately $30 million to build, is reported to be the most modern Metal Injection Moulding facility to be built in the North American region in over seventeen years.
The new plant is a vertically integrated facility that includes in-house feedstock preparation, MIM primary operations, in-house heat treatment and a number of in-house secondary operations. At full capacity, it is expected to provide approximately 300 jobs to the local community.
With the establishment of a North American presence, Indo-MIM Inc stated that it plans to capture a maximum share of the growing USA MIM market in the coming years, and reportedly plans to cater primarily to the firearms, medical, military and aerospace industries.
