Shure Opens 2nd Manufacturing Facility in Mexico

Members of Shure’s board of directors and executive staff who traveled to Juarez, Mexico, for the opening.

Members of Shure’s board of directors and executive staff traveled to Juarez, Mexico, to formally open the second Shure manufacturing facility there.

In the 1980s, founder S.N. Shure personally selected the city of Juarez as the location of Shure’s first manufacturing facility in Mexico. Production began on Oct. 1, 1984, with only 10 associates in a rented building. Shure moved its operations to a new Shure-owned facility in 1990, and, in 2004, it expanded the plant space by 15,000 square feet. The expansion continued to 21,000 square feet in 2006.

With the continued growth, Shure said it decided it was time to open a second facility that allows for even greater product manufacturing capability.

More than 130 associates from both plants gathered at the facility’s opening ceremony, which began with an introduction by Monse Luna, Juárez HR manager. Chris Schyvinck, Shure’s president and CEO, and Juventino Herrera, the Juárez plant manager, delivered a welcome speech and a brief overview of the project.

Jamie Griffin, senior VP and chief supply chain officer, emphasized the importance of the facility and its impact on the company and to the region.

“We have a long and successful history here and we want to continue to leverage this legacy as we support our customers,” Griffin said. “The team in Juárez is an incredibly important part of the Shure family and with the addition of this new facility, the Shure story will continue here for many years to come.”

Within the next decade, Shure expects to ramp-up the new facility to add up to 500 new associates.

“By expanding our presence in Juárez, we can enhance our global supply chain, ensuring that our products reach the hands of our valued customers swiftly and seamlessly,” Schyvinck said. “This additional manufacturing capability will allow us to meet the growing demands of our customers, no matter where they are located.”

The brand’s popular SM58 Vocal Microphone is manufactured in Juárez, as well as its Microflex and Beta lines, the 55SH and many wireless products like ULX-D, QLX-D, Axient Digital and more.
