Employees and their families came together for a joyous graduation ceremony in September at the Acuña, Mexico, manufacturing campus of Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC (Bendix). Newly graduating team members accepted diplomas for completing the internal education program offered by Bendix Acuña. Twenty-six graduates represented the 18th consecutive graduating class of the program, which supports employees who previously did not have the opportunity to complete traditional schooling.

Since the program’s launch in 2005, 387 employees have completed their primary, middle, or high school studies. In addition to the education program, Bendix Acuña team members benefit from multiple other opportunities to support their personal and professional goals, including university scholarships, English language instruction, and leadership training.

“We have long been committed to investing in our people,” Jacqueline Perez, Bendix managing director of operations in Mexico, said. “They are the heart of our company’s future. We couldn’t be prouder of our latest class of graduates and all who preceded them. These team members — who are diligent and dedicated in pursuit of their goals — embody our core values of knowledge and growth, which are integral to everything we do at Bendix Acuña. It’s wonderful to come together with the graduates and their supportive families to celebrate their achievements.”

Bendix develops and manufactures active safety, air management, and braking system technologies for commercial vehicles, and opened its original Acuña plant in May 1988. The campus now consists of three state-of-the-art facilities and a logistics center, employing more than 1,800 workers and encompassing 412,000 square feet. Construction is nearing completion on a fourth production facility, which will produce two emerging, next-generation technologies: Global Scalable Brake Control (GSBC) and Global Scalable Air Treatment (GSAT).
