In 2006, Horst Engineering established its first international presence with the introduction of a Mexican maquiladora. Horst Engineering began a new era by producing products in Nogales, Sonora with the support of a Mexican shelter partner. The Sonoran culture is exemplified by its talented and hardworking people. In 2009, Horst Engineering de Mexico moved to a larger plant in Guaymas, Sonora.
