Q: What unique qualities set ESON Multiwin apart from other companies and enabled it to establish partnerships with industry leaders like Tesla?
A: Basically we are experienced company in plastic molding and metal stamping, painting and assembly process and have more than 9 years in the automotive business in Tijuana Baja California Mexico.
Have about 56 injection molding machines (from 80Ton to 3000Ton) and approximately 80 metal stamping and die cutting machines (from 30Ton to 2000Ton). We have many years of experience in mold design and manufacturing, including in our subsidiary in China. As a result, we can provide support by designing molds and producing parts in our plants in Tijuana, Baja California, and new plan in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon near to our customers in USA, Mexico and Latinamerica.
ESON Multiwin was established in Tijuana in 2009 and has grown steadily since then. Our main customer manufactures electrical automobiles but we also serve other clients in the electronics industry, including major brands of TV parts. We also sell marine equipment, mainly radars, antennas, fish finders and systems for sports fishing boats. In addition, we have also expanded our services to include internet servers. Moreover, we are working with new customer that are involved in the production of famous internet modems. Alongside with customer that manufactures circuit break contacts.
We expanded into the automotive industry in 2012 and we are looking to venture into the aerospace field but first we are in process of some certifications. We have been members of the Baja California Aerospace Cluster for several years and actively participate in its events, which has allowed us to identify potential suppliers and customers.
Q: How is ESON Multiwin leveraging its strategic position in Mexico to capitalize on nearshoring opportunities?
A: We started building a plant in Monterrey last year that will be finished by the end of 2023 but will start operations in about a month. This plant will allow us to provide clients the products and services they require and the attention they need first-hand.
Q: What is the anticipated impact of the upcoming Tesla plant in Mexico on ESON Multiwin’s operations?
A: The impact will be significant because our automotive customer already buys our products for its plant in Texas and the new plant in Nuevo Leon will only drive demand higher. That is why we built a plant, purchased equipment and are hiring skilled labor in Monterrey.
Q: What other partnerships are you interested in?
A: We want to create synergies with other companies. We are working with other customer, which produces jet skis and snowboards, and we are exploring projects with other companies that are working on drones and similar technologies. Our capabilities range from molding small buttons to pieces that are 50-60m long, which require a 3,000-ton machine. We are also experienced in metal stamping and can stamp pieces up to 2m in length using a 2,000-ton machine. We can support any company that needs either large or small parts.
Q: What challenges do you face when trying to expand your business?
A: Sometimes, it is challenging to deliver to clients located in some areas of the country, although not impossible. Our location in the north of Mexico makes some difficulty to deliver some products to center of Mexico or to the Bajio region. We are studying strategies to form alliances to meet the needs of our customers in those areas.
Q: What are ESON Multiwin’s plans and priorities for 2023?
A: We experienced a slow start to 2023 for commercial business but we are working to be competitive in terms of productivity, customer satisfaction and quality. Automotive business demand is stable and would like to increase it. We expect production to start picking up again by May. Due to lower demand at the beginning of the year, we had to make some changes to maintain productivity. We expect our commercial area of electronics parts will be more active by May, which is when those products often see increased demand. We will add new products and expect to boost communication Server parts, marine parts and the electrical breakers in June and July. Our primary goal is to remain competitive by offering quality products that ensure we retain our customers’ trust and that our suppliers receive our orders and provide us with the necessary products. We are determined to move forward that our customer keeps a confidence in our company.
