What Is a Maquiladora?
The term “Maquiladora” refers to a manufacturing solution created in the 1960s to take advantage of preferential tariff agreements between the U.S. and Mexico & to encourage foreign investment in that country. Maquiladoras in Mexico are now referred to as IMMEX (Industría Manufacturera Maquiladora y de Servicio de Exportación). A Maquiladora in Mexico is a factory or plant that is located near the Mexico/U.S. border. It is staffed by Mexican workers, but owned and operated by a U.S. company (although other countries, such as China, can also operate a Maquiladora). A Maquiladora allows manufacturers to operate duty-free and tariff-free. Businesses outsourcing their manufacturing needs can benefit from this approach in many ways. These needs may result from cost competitiveness or the availability of labor to meet demand.

White paper: 5 Reasons Why Nearshore Manufacturing is a Perfect Fit for Mexico’s Textile and Apparel Industry
Mexico’s textile and apparel industries are becoming more diversified and expanding with newer investments in technology and infrastructure. If your company is seeking Mexico contract manufacturing for garment and textile manufacturing, there is no better fit than NovaLink. Here are 5 reasons why.
The NovaLink Advantage
NovaLink is committed to the philosophy that transitioning manufacturing to Mexico should be an easy, rapid and cost-effective process. We offer the following advantages to enable our customers to succeed.
Ability to Scale
NovaLink can initiate a manufacturing relationship with a floor plan 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.
Attractive Labor Pool
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.
No Significant Upfront Capital Commitment
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.
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.
Site Selection and Raw Materials Procurement
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 assist in source materials and provide cost estimates.
