Tijuana: The Medical Device Mecca
Although belonging to different countries, Tijuana (in Northern Mexico) is just minutes away from San Diego (in the U.S.). Due to this, and many more reasons, the experts agree that Tijuana is the medical device manufacturing capital, not only of Mexico, but of North America.
It has more than 30 years of experience building the perfect environment to get infallible results. There are also 50+ medical device firms in the region, which has allowed them to achieve production with no precedent, compared to other countries and states.
According to a KPMG study in 2014, Mexico was ranked as one of the lowest-cost countries among 14 analyzed, and also provided more than 18.7% of cost advantage compared to the U.S. and other countries in South America and Europe. As for Asian countries, Mexico’s costs were slightly higher than, for example, China; despite this, Tijuana’s nearshore location to the U.S. provides better logistics and quicker access to the West Coast, as well as several major international seaports and airports.
