Learn the Advantages of Manufacturing in Mexico

There are many, many advantages to manufacturing in Mexico; below are a few of the advantages of manufacturing in Mexico with NovaLink.

Some Advantages of Manufacturing in Mexico

Production is closer to the U.S. border; faster time to the consumer market than shipping across the Pacific Ocean, which can take weeks.   Lower transportation, trucks and trains as opposed to ships and the abundance of warehousing make Mexico a cost-effective solution.   The Mexican government is very friendly to foreign business and investment, as demonstrated by their 44 trade agreements with countries around the globe.   U.S.-made parts and products are used by Mexico Manufacturers up to four times more than China; this is a tremendous benefit to suppliers in the United States.   The U.S. and Mexico share similar cultures, have a minimal language barrier, and comparable time zones. In addition, English-speaking middle management in the Mexican workforce is plentiful (as opposed to China where speaking English is actually discouraged) alleviating the need for language translators.   Mexico enjoys lower medical costs for its workforce as compared to the U.S., allowing companies to hire additional employees with minimal expense for medical benefits.
