Time To Compete The Cali-Baja MegaRegion:

It’s not often that companies find the mix of benefits that a globally strategic location like Cali-Baja has. As the second-largest city on the Pacific Coast of North America (after Los Angeles), Baja California can give your business a near-shore yet next-door production platform that few places in the world can – especially when we´re next to the second largest city in California: San Diego.

With a time-zone that won´t keep you up at night (Pacific Standard Time), Baja California location means no cross-oceanic flights and no long trips South of the border to solve problems – and you can get your products quickly to your customers – where they need to be, and when you need them.

And provide other, less obvious cost savings, too.. With its moderate climate, your company can avoid the excessive energy costs you´d get in many hotter and more humid (or hurricane-prone) cities in other border locations. Cali-Baja investors also gain from higher uptime with more-advanced infrastructure, low levels of unionization, and state-of-the art industrial facilities.

While some off-shore production locations appear attractive with “lowest-cost” labor, Baja California peso-denominated labor rates provide significant cost-savings and a unique near-shore solution with lower total cost to market – given the region, experienced workforce, productivity, quality, and supply chain strengths.

TIME TO MARKET

One of Cali-Baja’s strengths is its Pacific Rim location – facilitating logistics and getting your products to major markets, combined with a just-in-time production culture that only cities from Baja California critical mass of multinational companies could create. Speeding your time to market means your company carries less inventory, is more nimble with market means your company carries less inventory, is more nimble with market changes, and can better link your entire supply chain – whether your raw materials or products need to come through the Port of LA/ Long Beach, fly out just-in-time via LAX or San Diego, or be shipped via truck or rail across North America.
Proximity has its advantages – not only can you truck your finished products from Baja California and get them anywhere in the U.S. or Canada in one to seven days, but face-to-face communication between your operation and customers or corporate staff is only hours away – which extensive air travel options available via San Diego’s International Airport and LAX. Within one to seven hours you can fly almost anywhere in the U.S. and Canada.

TIME FOR WORLD CLASS QUALITY

Quality is not an act – it´s a habit. And every day in Cali-Baja, a majority of Baja California’s 350,000 manufacturing workers perform this habit at hundreds of companies that have ISO9001, ISO13485, ISO/TSI16949, Six Sigma, 5S, kaizen, and other quality management.
It’s a culture quality – shaped by experience, and reflected in the people working in Tijuana´s high-tech manufacturing operations, in Class 10,000 and Class 100,000 clean-rooms, in FDA- and Department of Defense Regulated facilities, and in QS-certified automotive industry operations.ent certifications or lean manufacturing environments.
