M. Holland Company Announces New Mexico Break Bulk Terminal, Capacity Expansion

NORTHBROOK, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–M. Holland Company, a leading distributor of thermoplastic resins, today
announced the opening of a new break-bulk terminal in Tultitlán, Mexico,
near Mexico City. Located in a secure industrial park, the facility
features 80,000-square-feet of modern warehousing space, a separate
break-bulk and processing building containing packaging and pulverizing
equipment, and newly built headquarters offices for the company’s Latin
American operations.

“We consolidated two separate facilities in the Mexico City area into
one, highly efficient and perfectly located operation with ample room
for our projected growth,” said Xavier Lebrija, Director General of M.
Holland Latino América. “In the process, we tripled our resin
pulverizing capacity and doubled our bagging capacity.”

The facility can unload two railcars at a time indoors and accommodate
up to a dozen railcars on a secure rail spur within the industrial park,
with significant additional track storage in an adjacent railyard with
daily switching. Its three pulverizing lines have combined annual
capacity of about 12 million pounds. It features two bagging lines,
including a new high-speed “form, fill, and seal” (FFS) line, with
combined capacity to bag up to six railcars per day.

At a grand opening today attended by over 200 people, Steve Armstrong,
M. Holland’s Global Sales Director, said, “This expansion demonstrates
our commitment to Mexico and Latin America. The location allows us to
service both domestic and international suppliers and a hub to reach
both Mexican and export customers.”

Added M. Holland CEO Ed Holland, “Our mission is to be to be a trusted
partner to both suppliers and customers, many of whom need reliable
supply chains in a global marketplace. We’re making the necessary
investments to be that reliable channel to market.”
