A Tai­wanese man­u­fac­turer of metal com­pos­ite ma­te­ri­als an­nounced Thurs­day it is re­lo­cat­ing a dis­tri­bu­tion fa­cil­ity to a boom­ing New Mex­ico bor­der town.

New Mex­ico Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment Sec­re­tary Ali­cia J. Keyes said the Xx­en­tria Tech­nol­ogy Ma­te­ri­als Co. has pur­chased land for its fa­cil­i­ties in Santa Teresa, New Mex­ico, with a pro­duc­tion plant planned in Chi­huahua, Mex­ico.

Un­der the com­pany’s plan, Xx­en­tria will con­vert a 40-acres (16.19-hectares) site across from the FedEx Ground fa­cil­ity in the West­park Lo­gis­tics Cen­ter in Santa Teresa and an­tic­i­pates start­ing con­struc­tion in 2021.

Keyes said the move was made af­ter she met with com­pany of­fi­cials in Tai­wan last year.

“It’s ex­cit­ing be­cause it’s on both sides of the bor­der,” Keyes said.

“We feel that at­tract­ing com­pa­nies out of Asia like this, we have a real op­por­tu­nity to grow” Santa Teresa even more.

Xx­en­tria is a sig­nif­i­cant pro­ducer of gal­va­nized steel and alu­minum com­pos­ite pan­els for both the trans­porta­tion and ar­chi­tec­ture in­dus­tries.

“Santa Teresa/San Jeron­imo is the fu­ture of the bor­der re­gion.

Es­tab­lish­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing op­er­a­tions in North Amer­ica will al­low us to bet­ter ser­vice our val­ued cus­tomers in the United States,” said Howard Chen, Chair­man and CEO of Xx­en­tria. (AP)
