Am I a Good Fit as a Manufacturing Partner with NovaLink?

To better understand if your product or company is a good fit for manufacturing with NovaLink, we have provided a short list of items and practices that unfortunately we cannot accommodate.  If you have further questions, please complete the form at the bottom of this page.   Good Fit

  • If you are a startup, your company needs to have full-funding from an investor for your project.  We do not work with startups without funding.
  • Your manufacturing, whether your are doing your own production or outsourcing, has a steady, consistent volume.
  • Your product requires at least 5 or more employees to produce.
  • Your product requires complex labor or assembly.

Not a Good Fit

  • We do not work with companies that are interested in doing “short runs”.
  • Simple, machine based production.
  • We prefer to work with companies that have their own equipment for manufacturing and are seeking to re-locate it to Mexico.  We are able to source equipment for you if this is an issue, and the additional costs will be included in your quote.
  • We do not produce Spec products.  We encourage our clients to have spec products already produced before engaging with us.
  • We do not produce the following:
    • Shoes
    • Chemical Products or any products that contain hazardous materials
    • Food or Beverage products
    • Weapons or Para-Military products

Some Mexico Advantages

Mexico, not China, is the most favored manufacturing base for companies in the United States.  There are many reasons for this, but the most important is the ability for companies to reduce their expenses while increasing their revenue by manufacturing in Mexico.

It is literally right across the border from Texas, and NovaLink has well-developed supply chains.

Mexican laborers, whose wages are 30 % lower than China, are skilled in auto-making and equipment industries, as well as other labor-intensive industries, such as clothing and textiles.

Following the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994, Mexico saw a surge in manufacturing investments and, after a significant share of factory work went to China when they entered the World Trade Organization in 2001, the pendulum is now swinging back in Mexico’s favor.

Mexico has free-trade agreements with 44 countries. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) provides access manufacturers in Mexico from the USA and Canada. The Mexican government encourages foreign investments.

Westland Case Study

Due to the nature of their business, Westland could not carry inventory for their products, as many of the covers and Bimini tops are aftermarket, and no longer available for sale retail. This on demand model required them to manufacture and ship on a short timeline – sometimes as short as seven days. Proximity to market and the ability to drop-ship also became an issue due to the on-demand model of their business.
