For several years, manufacturing companies in Baja California have provided significant growth and have been one of the economic foundations of the region. Tijuana cannot be left behind, as it is the major contributor to this success due to its manufacturing environment and logistical benefits.
One of the reasons Tijuana is the number one location for the industry is because of its strategic location, close to the United States but with competitive costs provided by government programs and the skilled workforce.
In addition, it is connected to main seaports and international airports, making it a gateway to the global market. As Mexico’s first manufacturing export base, Tijuana’s growth is undeniable, and the long-term forecast is promising. However, we consider some sectors have received the best results, so we listed the top three.

Regarding Medical Device manufacturing in Mexico, Medtronic, DJO Global, and Thermo Fisher are some of the most notable companies.
