Mr. Arturo Parra Zapata
50 years’ experience in the plastic industry
Advisor for the Herdez group in the plastic factories
Pet containers factory
Injection factory for caps
17 years ago herdez group initiated with an important investment on machinery  and equipment in order  to reduce cost and to have a safe and reliable supply for the different PET containers mainly containers for spices , squeezable ,juice hot filling, tea hot filling, gallon, and half gallon.
All the equipment used for this propose are Japanese last generation, and so are the molds, at present time in our factory in zumpango we produce 25 million containers per year,
And at the cap factory at San Luis Potosi produces 300 million caps with Canadian equipment.
My function in the group has been to advise and help them decide about acquisition of equipment, initiate operations of the factory, preventive and corrective maintenance  for all the equipment and supervise all the new containers and caps development.
Supervise the day to day production and advice personal with any current problem.
The resins used are PET for the containers and POLIPROPILENE for the caps.
The factories work 7 days a week with programed maintenance.
Our five containers lines and four caps lines work totally in automatic mode so that nobody touches the products in the whole process, this way we guarantee the innocuousness of our products.
