Keep reading to know where and how these companies work.

Baja California: A Place for Manufacturing

In the last couple of decades, economic development in Mexico has allowed for established and new industries to flourish thanks to investment in infrastructure, education, and international cooperation for global trade. For example, electronics manufacturing in Mexico has grown immensely, particularly in Baja California, thanks in part to the USMCA (United States, Mexico and Canada Agreement) free trade agreement. This treaty allows companies to establish in Mexico under the IMMEX Program, where companies can temporarily import goods.

These conditions, along many others, such as high-skilled labor, logistical facilities, and a privileged location right next to California, turned this state into the #1 exporter of flat-screen TVs; #2 exporter of computers, and most of all, allowed some of the most recognized names in the electronics fields to be located there for manufacturing purposes. Names such as Foxconn, Samsung, and Panasonic are just some of them.

Baja California’s Capabilities and Music Equipment

What musical products are produced in Mexico? Particularly speaking of music equipment manufacturers, several first-class companies installed a big part of their production in Baja California, such as Harman, Paradox Effects, Penn Elcom, Poly, Bose, Skullcandy, and JBL, among others. What’s interesting about this list is that we not only find big international corporations such as Bose or Harman, but also smaller companies like Paradox Effects, which means there are opportunities for different-sized companies.

What makes Baja California such a strategic location for this is mainly local talent and its logistics facilities. The state has a highly-skilled work base of engineers trained in high-level local universities, and also with a lot of experience as many of them have worked in music equipment manufacturing at some point. About the logistical facilities, Baja California has over 120 industrial parks; a seaport near San Diego and Longbeach’s seaport; 5 ports of entry to the USA; and many companies dedicated to international trade and transport.
