Graham Packaging

Graham Packaging Mexico, a subsidiary of the global leading company for plastic packaging solutions, shares its parent company’s vision to offer innovative products to top brands known worldwide in categories such as: food & beverage, automotive fluids, personal care & household and other chemical products. Some of Graham’s best-known clients include Nestlé, McDonald’s, Procter & Gamble companies, CocaCola brands, Arizona Tea and also domestic brands. In 2011, Silgan Holdings acquired Graham Packaging for approx. $1.3 billion.

                  Graham Packaging ventured into Mexico in 2001. The subsidiary’s workforce currently employs more than 1,000 workers in its manufacturing facilities in Tlalnepantla, Pachuca, Irapuato –the farthest distance between any of these cities in the center of Mexico is barely more than 200 miles- and the remote, strategically-located plant in Mexicali, Baja California, border with the United States. Also, Graham Packaging offers the convenience of on-site manufacturing for dedicated operations, amounting to 30 percent of its clientele.

                  There are plenty of important factors conditioning the packaging industry, such as freshness, expiration dates, best consumption dates, resistance to possible mishandlings as well as a demand for reusable, recyclable, environment-friendly packaging solutions. Such conditions result in Graham Packaging constantly developing new materials, having PET bottles replacing polypropylene, and patenting oxygen-absorbing material such as CPTX.

                  Graham Packaging’s Vice-President for Mexico and Central America is Mexicali native Martin Cueva. Cueva is an industrial engineer with postgraduate studies in Industrial Organization. Cueva was first hired as plant manager for the Mexicali facility, where he turned the plant into a global benchmarking site for Graham Packaging; soon after he was named Operations Manager, which resulted in Cueva relocating to the Bajio zone of inner Mexico, where he could supervise the company's plants. Before Graham, Cueva's experience in other industries took him to learn about the lean manufacturing principles he implemented with ease into Graham Mexico.

                  "The importance of my lean manufacturing training has become an important background during my career," shared Cueva.
