Friedrich Air Conditioning Company announced that it plans to move production of room air-conditioners from its San Antonio, TX, U.S. plant to the company's facility in Monterrey, Mexico. According to Friedrich President and CEO Charles M. Marino, production at the San Antonio plant will end in November.

"After considerable deliberation and assessment of our business, the decision has been made to cease production in our San Antonio plant," Marino said. "This extremely difficult decision was made for competitive reasons and to ensure the future of our business."

When asked why Friedrich selected Monterrey as the site for its new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, Marino explained that Monterrey offers a unique combination of assets. "The city of Monterrey was selected because of its skilled, stable work force, strong supplier base, and strategic location near the San Antonio headquarters," he said. "In addition, keeping production in North America will allow us to be closer to our customers and to get products to market faster. Ultimately, this will result in better customer service."   

Although Friedrich production is being moved to Monterrey, the company has announced that all administrative functions, including engineering, service parts, and warehousing, will remain in San Antonio.
