(IMI), one of the leading global manufacturing solutions experts, today announced that revenues for the full year 2017 hit a record high of US$1.09 billion, rising 29 percent from 2016.

In Mexico, revenues expanded 29 percent to US$84.2 million, as numerous projects for North America customers entered new product introduction phase throughout the year.
