Kuka's Mexico plant

MONTERREY, Mexico - Kuka Home has doubled the size of its upholstered furniture manufacturing plant in Monterrey, Mexico.

The expanded facility will allow for shortened lead times and increased capacity. 

Furniture Today reported that the facility originally opened in June 2020 to focus on special orders for the North American market. Around 650 employees work at the plant.

The plant was initially 130,000 square feet. Kuka hopes to expand it even more, with an eventual goal of 750,000 square feet. 

The company is headquartered in China and runs five manufacturing plants there. It also runs another Monterrey facility and two new plants in Vietnam.
