Phillips Industries has expanded its Electrical Harness Division (EHD) in Saltillo, Mexico, to meet increased industry demands for its products, which include trailer harnesses and associated components for van, reefer, and cargo semitrailers as well as smaller trailers used for recreational vehicles, boat and utility trailer towing. The company says its STA-DRY Modular Harness System, produced in Saltillo, is the most spec'd trailer electrical wiring harness system in North America.

The EHD was moved to Saltillo in 2007 because increased demand required the company to seek larger, more efficient manufacturing facilities. In 2008, Fili Coello joined Phillips as general manager of EHD, focusing on continuous improvement to further increase capacity and reduce lead times.
