Why Manufacturing in Mexico should be your first option

If you are currently manufacturing or sourcing your products in China, and selling to the United States or Canada, you might want to think about manufacturing in Mexico.

There are several advantages to moving your production to Mexico, including:

1. Proximity to the United States - which means decreased transportation costs

2. Lower labor costs overall

3. Access to highly skilled workers - many who speak English

4. The majority of Mexico is on Central Standard Time, which enables you to get things done the same day, instead of the waiting a day for your Chinese manufacturer to respond.

5. Faster turnaround time

Mexico is home to manufacturing for many important companies – Whirlpool, Samsung, Victoria’s Secret, Callaway Golf, Volkswagen, just to name a few. Did you know that the majority of TVs sold in the US are actually manufactured in Tijuana, Mexico (over 20 million!)?

Manufacturing in Mexico is a great choice for companies of all sizes. Whether you are just starting out and need someone to help build a prototype of your product, or you are a well established multi-national, Mexico can cover all your needs.
