The average fully burdened Line Assembler's per hour wage in Baja California is $2.52 as compared to California at $13.30, that was an 81% savings just on labor rates! This allowed TODCO to be more price-competitive while increasing their profit margins.

The close geographic proximity of Baja California to Southern California made it an ideal location for Manufacturing. If fact, being in the Baja California region has helped TODCO develop new customers given many of the major automotive manufactures have operations here. This improved process flow helped with TODCO's Lean Manufacturing initiatives and overall manufacturing cost reduction.

Better Margins, New Customers and Process Improvement

Entering Mexico: IMMEX
Shelter Program

Having identified Baja California as the ideal location for TODCO, the next question was how to establish their Manufacturing operation. Under Mexico's IMMEX (Shelter) Program, TODCO was able to quickly establish their Manufacturing operation and begin production. This program allows companies to enter Mexico without any liability and minimal risk to the organization.

Expanding to Baja California, Mexico has been a great strategic move for TODCO, helping them reduce costs and increase their customer base.
