Located east of Tijuana, Tecate’s manufacturing industry is stable with 135 manufacturing facilities and over 10,000 manufacturing personnel.

Major Manufacturers in
Tecate, Baja California, Mexico

Though smaller than its sister manufacturing cities of Tijuana and Mexicali, Tecate Mexico Pueblo Magico (Magical Town) makes it ideal for manufacturers looking for less traffic and the hustle and bustle of a big city while still having access to services, modern infrastructure, and a dedicated border crossing. Tecate has an abundant and skilled labor pool that is said to have a less transient workforce resulting in lower turnover.

Tecate’s manufacturer mainstays show the strength of this city for successful operations while manufacturing in Mexico. Rockwell Automation employs 4,000 people at their Tecate plant and Schlage Locks employs 720. Main industrial parks include Parque Industrial Tecate (“Tecate Gateway”) and the new Parque El Bajio.

Co-Production International currently operates a branch office out of Tecate to serve the growing manufacturing industry. The Tijuana International Airport is located a mere 30 miles east of Tecate, providing easy travel for business and management teams.
