MEXICO CITY (AP) — A Mexico-based food products company says that one of its distribution centers near the U.S. border is operating at full capacity after closing due to security concerns.

The Lala Group suspended operations at the Tamaulipas distribution center in Ciudad Mante in May.

CEO Scot Rank said in a statement Thursday the center was reopened and recognized "the efforts of the state government aimed at bolstering security."

Violence in Ciudad Mante was blamed on fighting between factions of the Zetas known as the Northeast cartel and the Old School Zetas.

Later in May, 13 people were wounded after a bus full of factory workers was hit by gunfire in the city of Reynosa.

Mexico's largest Coca-Cola bottler suspended its Guerrero-based operations in April due to violence in that state.
