As a business owner, you should know that there will always be things to improve in order to keep growing and increasing profits. Manufacturing companies are the same; maintaining them is not easy, considering the competitive global scenario, but with constant work you should be fine. Nevertheless, if you have decided your company needs a change for good, and you’re thinking of starting business in Mexico, there are a few things you need to know beforehand.

Setting Up a Company in Mexico

There is no need to worry: Mexico is a smart option to start a business. What we want to suggest you, nonetheless, is to have all the necessary information regarding your company and the place you are choosing as your destiny.

To help you make a wise decision, here are 5 things you need to know before you set up a business in Mexico:

  1. Location
    Your company should enjoy the advantages of a perfect location, a place that promotes on-time deliveries, shorter distances and connection to the world as contract manufacturing solutions. Nearshoring is becoming an essential condition for companies: all the benefits that arise from being closer lead to savings and an efficient supply chain.
  2. Costs
    Mexico is among the first 25 export economies, with Tijuana as the city with the lowest total cost. This is due to the competitive costs of the Mexican workforce. Manufacturing in China (and other Asian countries) represents the same expenses, but the difference is the quality of the processes and the products, which translates into better finished goods and, hence, a better relationship with your clients.
  3. Infrastructure

Industrial parks, highways and basic services are imperative; otherwise, your expenses will increase and the flow of your company will be forced to slow down.
  4. Workforce
    Perhaps you’ve heard it before: Mexico is known for its globally admired workforce. The talent and skills that people provide are the key to high-quality products and efficient manufacturing. Also, the local universities prepare the youth to study careers in Engineering, International Business, Technology, Administration and more.
  5. Government relationship
    Companies should have a close relationship with the government, or at least a link that helps them be in contact with each other and know the incentives that industries can achieve. As experts in the manufacturing field, we’ve found that the city of Tijuana, Mexico, has all the requisites industries look for when searching for a place to grow.
