At its inception, the draw for foreign manufacturers was its low-cost labor rates, today the manufacturing landscape is much different; Mexico has attracted global corporations from the manufacturing sector that go far beyond simple assembly. It is now common to find companies that design, develop and manufacture some of the most complex products in the marketplace for a variety of industries.Learn More About Us
The belated awakening of Mexico's new-vehicle marketplace is a big deal. It's good news all around, something that ought to put smiles on the faces of everybody in the global auto industry.
Certainly the biggest smiles are in Mexico -- new-vehicle owners, automakers, suppliers and dealers -- after 2015 sales there jumped 19 percent to 1.35 million and finally broke the record set in 2006. But the recovery in Mexico's sales is ultimately also good for auto industry employees in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere.
For the past decade, Mexico has been out of balance when it came to automobiles. On the production side, it's been great. Light-vehicle manufacturing has boomed. Between 2005 and last year, output more than doubled to 3.5 million vehicles as several automakers expanded capacity or opened assembly plants.
Tijuana, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO. Co-Production International (CPI) announces this summer’s first manufacturing industrial tour set for July 28th. Enthusiasm and excitement abound as US firms seize the opportunity to see what hundreds of manufacturers have been taking advantage of for decades. This is the first kick off tour in CPI’s “Summer of Nearshoring” programs. While nearshoring production to Mexico isn’t new, CPI offers this tour, as well as customized agendas for manufacturers seeking a first-hand experience of the quality labor force, cost savings and potential of the United States’ southern neighbor. Mexico is a manufacturing powerhouse and the time has never been more right.
Mexico’s efforts to develop its economy have made it one of the world’s top 10 car-exporting nations. NAFTA was one of those efforts. A worker screws a wheel of a car in a Nissan factory in Aguascalientes in 2014. Ginnette Riquelme - MCT
While nations can untangle themselves from past international trade pacts, it is as impossible to return a previous “normal” as to unscramble an omelet. A nation can return its own laws to the exact legal situation that prevailed before some treaty, but it cannot change policies on the other side of the agreement.
Nor can it undo actions taken by private businesses in reaction to a newly renounced pact. In economic terms, it is just as impossible to return fully to what diplomats call the “status quo ante” as it is to reconstitute bits of scrambled yolk into an egg.
Readers have asked what will happen if the United Kingdom actually exits the European Union or if the United States repudiates the North American Free Trade Agreement. The answer is that laws can revert to what they were, but the economies will never be the same.
Leading French tyre manufacturer Michelin has announced to add a new manufacturing location on the globe and come up with a plant in Mexico.
This new manufacturing in the Latin American country will be the tyre maker’s 69th around the world and its 21st in North America. Michelin has proposed to establish the new plant in Leon, in the state of Guanajuato in Mexico. The plant would be producing premium tyres for high-end cars as well as light commercial vehicles.
The new manufacturing facility will see first products coming off the assembly line in 2018 and will be sold in the Latin American market. The facility is built over an investment of 510 million dollars and will see the work getting commenced in a few months’ time from now. The company has a projected production volumes of 4-5 million tyres every year, seeing the high demand of the north American market.
The North American Free Trade Agreement is one reason a 65-year-old Phoenix manufacturing company is increasing its revenue.
Family-owned Allied Tool & Die uses NAFTA to invest capital and grow in Phoenix while also generating business with a Mexican manufacturing branch.
“I do not take jobs away from Phoenix just because I have a plant in Mexico,” said Bill Jordon, Allied’s third-generation company CEO. “The plants complement each other and the Mexican operation allows me to make capital investment in Arizona.”
Allied has 95 employees in its south Phoenix multi-building location and 13 workers four hours away in Mexicali, Baja, Mexico. The plants, according to Jordan, serve different purposes.
Baja's Valle de Guadalupe has been dubbed the "the Next Napa." So why has it been so hard for its wine to gain a foothold in the U.S. market?
In the last few years, this relatively young, rapidly expanding region, which produces an estimated 90% of the country's wine, has become the critical darling of luxury food, wine and travel enthusiasts. Yet despite wide acclaim for the quality of its boutique bottlings and reputation as a chic gastronomic destination, sketchy brand awareness and an erratic distribution system have persistently hampered the success of Baja's wines.
Those promoting it say they're met with one of two questions: "They make wine in Mexico?" Or, "Why is it so hard to find Mexican wine?"
