The NovaLink Advantage

NovaLink is committed to the philosophy that transitioning to Mexico shelter manufacturing services should be an easy, rapid and cost-effective process.  We offer the following advantages in Mexico industrial manufacturing to enable our customers to succeed.

NovaLink can initiate a manufacturing relationship with a floorplan as small as 5,000 square feet. Once the relationship has been established, and proven successful, customers can scale up to 100,000 square feet or more. It also permits larger customers to scale down if the customers’ business experiences a need to reduce overall capacity.

NovaLink client’s are not required to enter into any long-term lease obligations or purchase new equipment (if currently owned). Furthermore, the client’s equipment can be shipped to NovaLink’s facilities in stages as production ramps to ensure quality control.

With our proximity to market, short lead times are met with turns from order placement as short as five days.

Mexico has made large strides in developing a world class labor market. NovaLink has positioned itself and helped develop a geographical market of labor that is pro-business resulting in lower than normal turnover rates.

NovaLink offers a variety of pricing models to accommodate unique client needs. These range from fully loaded hourly rates to a full package model where NovaLink provides the raw materials and equipment.

NovaLink can accommodate your operations within our current facilities, or if you prefer your own facility, assist in site selection, secure all permitting requirements and coordinate this effort with a builder or landlord.  Many of our customers have dedicated suppliers in place, but for those that do not, NovaLink will source materials and provide cost estimates.


Patagonia looked into manufacturing companies in Mexico in 1996 as they wanted to adjust their global supply chain due to long transit times for US materials and finished goods and high duty rates on foreign materials.  Although NovaLink only manufactured Patagonia’s polar fleece products at the beginning of the partnership, our portion of the business has grown as a result of our quality, speed to market and deep understanding of Patagonia’s products.
