Absolute Haitian delivering machines to U.S., Canada from Mexico

May 13, 2024
The shipments from Juarez are expected to avoid supply chain disruptions, skirt 25 percent tariff on machines imported from China.

Absolute Haitian announced that the majority of injection molding machines (IMMs) delivered to U.S. and Canadian customers will ship from Haitian International’s manufacturing facility in Mexico. Importing machines from Mexico will help shorten delivery times and mitigate disrupted supply chains and uncertain logistics parameters for customers in North America.

Absolute Haitian began importing its Mars Series to the U.S. market from Mexico in early 2024. One additional benefit will be that models shipped from Mexico avoid a 25 percent tariff placed on Chinese imported machinery.

The state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Acatlan de Juarez, in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara, was officially inaugurated in June 2023 with a total investment of around $50 million. “The facility is 27,000 square meters [290,625 square feet],” noted General Manager Xu Biyun. “We are very excited to partner with our U.S. colleagues to provide customers with smart, affordable IMM technology.”
