Cloyes Celebrates 15 Years, No Incidents in Mexico

Cloyes Gear and Products recently celebrated 15 years of successful operations at its 20,000-square-foot Aguascalientes, Mexico distribution center, and concurrently celebrated all 15 years without a single lost time incident.

Cloyes Gear and Products recently celebrated 15 years of successful operations at its 20,000-square-foot Aguascalientes, Mexico distribution center, and concurrently celebrated all 15 years without a single lost time incident. Opened in 2004, the distribution center, which also houses a research and development center, serves Cloyes customers in Mexico, Central America, South America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

“Our engaged employees create a culture of safety, teamwork, and continuous improvement for the benefit of the company and the communities we live and work in,” said Dave Haley, senior vice president of operations for Cloyes. “One of our company values is to be fully committed to employee health and safety, and our employees in Aguascalientes have certainly lived up that value since the opening of the facility 15 years ago.”

Cloyes doubled the size of the Aguascalientes center in 2012 and most recently redesigned the center to add an additional 27 percent in capacity. Since its opening, Cloyes has grown its SKU count in Aguascalientes from 800 to 1,600 and today ships more than 1.5 million kits and components annually.

A lost time incident is an on-the-job incident that results in a Cloyes employee being absent from the distribution center for a minimum of one full day work day. The employees working at the distribution center understand safety protocol thanks to the Cloyes’ safety committee. Monthly, each safety committee member completes a safety inspection of the facility. If the members find any issues, those findings are shared with the committee, and action items are identified and addressed. 

“Our entire team in Mexico is very proud of this achievement and we will continue to rely on each other to ensure we are conducting business safely,” said Claudio Del Pozo Cosio, general manager for Cloyes in Mexico.
