The global supplier of advanced engineered safety products for automotive and non-automotive markets, announces it has commenced production in a carbon fiber trim factory at Valle Hermoso, Mexico.

The new operation specializes in producing high quality carbon fiber exterior and interior components with ultra-premium styling themes. This investment serves as an improvement to the business model where the value chain previously relied upon products imported from Italy.

KSS has already booked several programs with multiple OEM’s that will serve as the start-up platform for the new factory. The Mexican operation has been modelled after the company’s existing KSS Italia factory in Tregnago, Italy. That factory currently supplies customers such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari and Maserati.

“The carbon trim capability and investment reflects our new level of commitment and presence to the North American market”, said Tony Nardone, President KSS Specialty Products division. “Having more accessible capacity to offer design flexibility will better serve our customers looking to differentiate their products.”
