Phillips Industries announced today, Jan. 22, that it has expanded its Electrical Harness Division (EHD), located in Saltillo, Mexico, to meet increased industry demands for its products, which include trailer harnesses and associated components for van, reefer and cargo semi-trailers, as well as smaller trailers utilized for recreational vehicles, boat and utility trailer towing.
Phillips says its Sta-Dry Modular Harness System, produced in Saltillo, is the most spec’d trailer electrical wiring harness system in North America today. Phillips says it moved the Electrical Harness Division to Saltillo in 2007 because the increased demand required the company to seek larger, more efficient manufacturing facilities.
In 2008, Fili Coello joined Phillips as general manager of EHD, focusing on continuous improvement to further increase capacity and reduce lead times. “We’ve made some incredible enhancements to our operation in Saltillo, which is evidenced by our service levels and excellent quality performance,” says Rob Phillips, director of operations for Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based Phillips. “We appreciate the hard work and commitment of everyone involved.”
