Center for Innovation in Engineering





Specialization in Plastic injection technological innovation   


Annually, Mexico produces 5.8 million tons of plastics: 79% is for national consumption, 21% is for exportation and 70% of moulds and tooling must be imported. Guanajuato occupies the 5th. place in the plastistic production national ranking and given the growing industry, it requires more and more highly specialized personnel.
