The biggest manufacturing hub in Mexico

Baja California and
Border Cities Mexico’s Manufacturing

There is no manufacturing hub in Mexico quite like the border cities of Tijuana, Tecate, Mexicali and Ciudad Juarez. They are their own third space simultaneously Mexico and the United States. The population is largely bilingual and bicultural, the workforce plentiful and well-educated, and the number of maquiladoras in the hundreds. Semitrucks travel across well-maintained highways carrying raw materials and products to and from factories and cross the border at upgraded high-tech commercial crossings that connect directly to the major U.S. highways in the NAFTA corridor. Also known as the CaliBaja Megaregion, the U.S.-Mexico border cities are robust, productive and ready for you.
