Moving Manufacturing to Mexico

Why Move Manufacturing to Mexico?

NovaLink’s low-cost labor environment and close proximity to the U.S. makes Moving Manufacturing to Mexico easy and seamless. The company has manufacturing facilities in the border cities of Brownsville, Texas and Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Across the board, manufacturing operations are reshoring manufacturing to North America, from big-name corporations to small and medium-sized companies, and avoiding the China tariffs. NovaLink’s Mexico contract manufacturing services are the ideal solution for all companies looking to reduce manufacturing costs.

Advantages of Mexico Shelter Manufacturing Services

The main Mexico Shelter Manufacturing Services advantage is that production is closer to the U.S. border; faster time to the consumer market than shipping across the Pacific Ocean, which can take weeks. By doing so, you can maintain critical Supply Chain Values for your business. Mexico Shelter Services means 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.  Do you have more questions about manufacturing in Mexico?  Read our Frequently Asked Questions and get answers.

Do You Have a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ)?
It is common practice in manufacturing to set a minimum order quantity (MOQ), which is the fewest amount of units that need to be purchased at once. Manufacturers or suppliers usually use MOQs for production runs, but a manufacturer can set them for different types of orders. At NovaLink, we do not establish relationships with our manufacturing partners based on MOQs, but rather through sustained production. NovaLink believes that having a consistent volume that engages full-time manufacturing teams year-round is the key to a successful, financially-viable manufacturing project. Partnering with NovaLink is not for “short runs” or products that require simple, machine-based production.
