The entire California and Baja California is known as the “CaliBaja Mega Region” with the manufacturing hub of Tijuana boasting an over 50 year-old history in manufacturing activities.
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
CPI to host a one-day tour of Tecate and Tijuana, Baja California's near-shore border cities where the attendee has an opportunity to experience Mexican manufacturing operations in action and get first-hand access to Mexico’s workforce, productivity and their commitment to quality standards and certifications.
SAN DIEGO: In today's dynamic manufacturing environment, companies have several attractive options to consider when expanding, relocating or simply starting a new manufacturing facility. Mexico and in particular the Baja California region, provides the best combination of assets for establishing a manufacturing operation.
Now that a poll-leading presidential candidate for one of the two main political parties has signaled he would violate and even walk away from the North American Free Trade Agreement, it’s time to review what NAFTA is.
On Friday night, Donald Trump told a rally in Oklahoma City, “The problem with free trade is you need smart negotiators on your side. When you have stupid people like we do, free trade’s no good.”
According to an Associated Press article, Trump told CBS’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday, “We will either renegotiate it or we will break it.” He called NAFTA “a disaster. The “stupid people” who negotiated NAFTA? It was the administration of President George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s. His U.S. trade representative initialed the negotiated deal in a San Antonio ceremony in 1992.
“Checklist” white paper, prepared for the American Medical Device Summit, finds that near-shore Mexico is a better choice than China, Costa Rica.
SAN DIEGO: Mexico Solft Landing Company, Co-Production International (CPI) is releasing a white paper, “Checklist: The Top 7 Criteria for Choosing a Medical Device Manufacturing Location”, at the American Medical Device Summit 2015 that will be held in Chicago on September 21-22, 2015.
As a Manufacturing Expansion Expert, CPI provides a range of site selection, construction management, staffing and administrative services to manufacturers. With more than 35 years of experience, CPI developed this “Checklist" white paper to help medical device manufacturers assess the cost/benefit value of locations.
The Checklist white paper reviews such factors as:
When discussing the wine of the Americas we first think of the United States, Argentina or Chile, even Brazil or Uruguay, but certainly not Mexico, which is ironic given that it is the oldest wine destination in the Americas. As early as 1554, it was in this country of Tequila and sombreros that the first vines appeared, grown under the leadership of the Spanish conquest. Today, there are great wines made here, especially on the red side. So we went to northern Mexico, to the Valley of Guadalupe, where the Jesuits began to plant vines for the development of their sacramental wine.Read more
Establishing a new facility is a complex process that requires a large investment and detailed analysis of internal production needs, facility features and site location requirements. The first step in this process is to select the country and region that best satisfies manufacturing needs.
Mexico has rapidly become a top destination for medical device manufacturing. Executives and trade organizations cite major cost savings and ease of business processes as some of the main reasons for selecting Mexico.
I sat down with our friends at Co-Production International to gain a clearer understanding of how manufacturers analyze the opportunities available for site location and learned that some of the main factors influencing site assessment are:
I don’t think anyone likes the idea of responding to all of the various statements that Donald Trump makes, but when he says something vaguely – emphasis on vaguely – substantive on an issue, a short response might be of value. New Ford vehicles are seen at a parking lot of the Ford factory in Sao Bernardo do Campo, Brazil, February 12. Donald Trump is right that we need companies to invest in America. But the answer is not to threaten trade wars when companies act in ways that are both profit maximizing and make consumers better off, the author writes. Paulo Whitaker/Reuters In a recent interview with Chris Cuomo, Trump talked about trade policy, and had this to say (starting around the 7:00 mark) about Ford doing some of its manufacturing in Mexico:Read more
