Phillips Industries celebrates Electrical Harness Division achievements

Phillips Industries LogoPhillips Industries’ Electrical Harness Division (EHD), located in the state of Coahuila, is celebrating its 10th anniversary of the expansion to Mexico producing Phillips’ electrical harnesses for the global trailer market, according to an announcement.

EHD has experienced 600 percent growth since Phillips made the decision to expand production of electrical harnesses into Mexico in 2008. The EHD facility footprint has increased from 90,480 sq. ft. to its current size of 140,000 sq. ft.

Because of the quality of the products manufactured at the EHD facility, Phillips electrical harnesses are standard on over 50 percent of trailers on the road in North America, the company says. EHD has the lowest standard lead time in the industry and can deliver custom harnesses in just two to three weeks.

In addition to marking a decade of manufacturing Phillips electrical harnesses, EHD also achieved the IATF-16949 quality certification in 2018.

“The successes we have had at EHD rests entirely on people who work here,” says Filberto Coello, Phillips Industries director of Mexican operations. “Our employees are truly invested in this business; committed to the company and to our customers. They are responsible for the quality and greater than 98 percent on-time delivery for our products. Congratulations to everyone on reaching our 10-year anniversary as a significant trailer industry supplier.”

EHD has been recognized by the governor of the state of Coahuila, Mexico, to be one of the best companies to work for in the region, the company says.

“We are not only proud to celebrate 10 years manufacturing our harnesses at EHD, but also proud of the continuous improvement we have seen every year since we established this operation; EHD has completely transformed our business,” says Rob Phillips, president and chief operating officer. “Thanks to everyone at EHD for helping us meet our goals of making Phillips Industries a true leader in the markets we serve.”
