Mexico's Manufacturing Workforce

The workforce in Mexico is well-educated, plentiful and reliable. Graduating 855,731 engineers graduated in Mexico and technical students nationally per year, Mexico produces roughly four times more graduates per capita in the field than the United States.

Close partnerships fostered between private industry and educational system make sure Mexico’s manufacturing workforce is trained in the skills you need now and the innovating technologies of the future. Mexico offers a skilled workforce for your direct labor needs, but also trains management and facility staff for your indirect labor needs.

Globally Competitive Labor Rates in Mexico

In the high growth markets, total labor costs account for approximately 30 percent of total location-sensitive costs in manufacturing and approximately 65 percent of total location-sensitive costs in service operations. Labor costs are lowest in Mexico, India, and China.

Mexican labor rates are competitive and can be the difference between surviving and thriving in your innovation-driven industries.

In the last 10 years Mexico has significantly closed the gap in labor costs compared to its offshore competitor, China. Labor cost in Mexico went from being 200% more expensive than labor cost in China, to an impressive 19.6% difference today.

Adding in transportation, logistics time and costs, manufacturing companies are finding manufacturing in Mexico is dramatically less expensive, even with the growing gap in labor wage.

Bridging Borders: Decades of Enduring Cultural, Economic, and Familial Bonds between Tijuana and San Diego

Strong cultural, economic and familial ties have existed between tijuana and san diego for decades, some would say as long back as when california was still a part of mexico.

With over 59 million northbound crossings from Tijuana to San Diego a year, executives find that the region is not only largely bilingual, but also engrained with many American customs. Additionally, the US Dollar is a widely accepted and used form of currency, especially along Northern border regions and in city metropolises. The US dollar is also the main currency for most commercial trade.
