TIJUANA: BEST NEARSHORE LOCATION FOR MEDICAL DEVICE
Proximity, Quality of the Workforce and the Ability to Work With CPI
We considered a number of options, including the possibility of opening our own facility or utilizing a shelter company. We considered locations such as Mexicali, Ciudad Juarez, Rosarito, and Tijuana. We chose Tijuana for its proximity to our Irvine, California Headquarters, the quality of the workforce and the ability to work with CPI.
ADVANTAGES OF MANUFACTURING IN TIJUANA
A Cost-Effective, Well-Established, and Mature Industry
The labor force appears to be abundant and capable. Being a finished goods contract manufacturer of medical devices, cost is a huge deal for us, as is proximity to the United States.
ACCESS TO NEW MARKETS & CUSTOMERS
Supply Chain Opportunities and Exposure to New Markets
GETTING SET-UP IN JUST A FEW MONTHS
Working with CPI is the Most Cost-Effective Way to Expand
Aspen Medical Products was very diligent in choosing a shelter services company, according to John Hamilton, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Special Projects. We did extensive research and felt that CPI was the best shelter services company for Aspen in Tijuana and by partnering with them, we were able to minimize our risk of operating in a new country.
