Geoffroy Vilbert, representative of the group in Nicaragua, explained to that "The project was decided on in June of this year and we started construction in September, it is an investment in a first part of $2 million and there is a second phase'."

"... The construction of the plant, according to Vilbert, responds to a strategy of the group, because it is a supplier of the Yazaki harness company.  "The strategy of the French group is that they always settle close to their partners.  The group has two plants in Central America, one in Honduras that manufactures the raw material and the Nicaraguan plant is the last phase to prepare the products for the Yazaki plants, which is why they came to Nicaragua, it is a strategic and logistical decision'."
