Major Trujillo shared with the audience a speech in the form of a scroll, which he later placed in a box made for the occasion and which contained phrases such as: “Dreams save us. The Diamond Foundry is a great dream that has been brought to our land by the tip of a gale of fresh air and hope.”
In the same way, the said box collected newspapers of the day, books and special things both for the present authorities and for some neighbors who even at this time had the opportunity to deposit a box of memory, which will remain forever in that land. Dehesa of the Labradors After the chest was buried, the powers went to the tabernacle, full of people, in which they revealed their “excitement and joy” before such a heavy day.
For his part, Roscheisen began to mention the synthetic diamond factory that is now in the first phase of construction “will be one of the most innovative, thanks to new technologies and will allow electric vehicles to become much more efficient.” In the same way, he points out that “there is no more suitable place than Trujillo for this workshop that will make history.” He also commented that “it will be good to accept the installation of a new factory within two years”.

Crystalline to be used as an electric vehicle element
The Trujillo artificial diamond factory, the first for a Diamond Foundry company located outside the United States, will produce parts that will be used primarily in the automotive sector.
