Overseas expansion for Northern Industrial

Blackburn-based Northern Industrial has opened a new operation in Mexico in order to better serve American customers.

The company supplies spare parts, many of which are rare or out of production, and has built a worldwide customer base. Its Blackburn facility holds approximately £10m in stock covering over 200,000 part numbers. It current exports to 146 countries.

The new Mexico City spare parts storage, shipping and repairs facility will be headed up by Alejandro Núñez (pictured) and is the first overseas site to be opened by Northern Industrial. It is hoped that a successful expansion into Mexico could spark the opening of more locations around the world.

David Lenehan, Northern Industrial managing director, said: "Our mission is to help businesses keep downtime to an absolute minimum. While we can offer 48-hour delivery of tested and approved spare parts worldwide from our main facility in Blackburn, our new Mexico City operation will help us keep downtime to a minimum for our customers across the Atlantic.

"If the Mexico operation proves a success, we’re aiming to open further similar operations across the world."
