NovaLink is a best-in-class, outsourcing solution for domestic and international companies seeking to relocate or initiate manufacturing operations in MexicoNovaLink is a best-in-class, outsourcing solution for domestic and international companies seeking to relocate or initiate manufacturing operations to Mexico in a low-cost labor environment with proximity to the U.S. The company has facilities in the border towns of Brownsville, Texas and Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

The History of NovaLink

In 1980, René González and Bill Wolfe began their maquiladora careers with the site development, relocation and servicing of large Fortune 500 companies including General Motors, Magnetek,Mitsubishi, and Trico. Building on this experience, Rene and Bill developed the NovaLink concept in 1988: a vision of providing vertical integration for manufacturers and facilitating the relocation of their operations into Mexico within a model of providing a full service approach focused on small to medium size companies. Over the last 28years, NovaLink has expanded their operations to more than 600,000 square feet for manufacturing and distributing out of Matamoros, and created a world class, diverse client database. In April of 2015 NovaLink partnered with Argenta Partners, a long-term equity investor with an active role toward achieving growth and development. Argenta made a large investment in NovaLink to formalize the partnership and provide capital for growth.
