Gemco awarded Engineering and Realization for new foundry
BLACKHAWK DE MÉXICO, S.A., from Santa Catarina Nuevo León, México, is a gray and nodular iron foundry that serves clients in the North American market. The company sells its products directly to OEM's and component manufacturers (Heavy Truck, Farm Equipment and other).
Over recent years the company not only increased sales volumes, while maintaining high quality, it also developed the capacity to supply its clients with high value-added finished products, with the inclusion of machine finished products. Blackhawk uses internal resources as well as external suppliers.
As a result for the efforts, in 2009, Blackhawk was awarded the “Plant Engineering Award” as well as the “Metalcaster of the year” by the American Foundry Society. Blackhawk was the first ever metalcaster outside the USA to receive those AFS- awards.
GEMCO’s scope of services includes Concept Engineering, Project Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Project Management. The completion of the project is expected to be complete by late 2013.
