Located mostly along Mexico’s border with the United States, the electronics industry was one of the first to begin manufacturing in Mexico. Over the past decade electronics manufacturing in Mexico has grown rapidly. Baja California, primarily Tijuana, is home to one of the largest clusters of electronics manufacturers and assemblers in all of Mexico. Electronics manufacturing companies in Mexico include Panasonic, Plantronics, Sharp and other large electronics manufacturers have many years of experience manufacturing in Mexico. In addition to the large OEM’s, suppliers to these firms have also expanded in the country and have contributed to the overall growth of the electronics industry in Mexico.
The maquiladora industry, a program established by the Mexican government over 50 years ago to boost employment along the borders, made manufacturing in Mexico attractive for companies servicing the North American market. Tax incentives, training programs and special agreements for the trade of goods (primarily NAFTA) has been the driving factor behind Mexico manufacturing. In addition to the government programs established to help the growth of manufacturing in Mexico, a well-trained, young workforce is available to companies who want to manufacture in Mexico, especially along the border in Tijuana, Mexicali and Cd. Juarez.
NAPS has been helping electronics manufacturers expand their operations along the border for over 2 decades. Our full-service Administration and Compliance Management Program starts with a comprehensive financial and logistical feasibility study to help companies make well-informed decisions about Mexico and whether or not partnering with NAPS is a good fit. Thereafter, NAPS manages virtually 100% of the on-going Human Resource, Accounting (in Mexico), Import/Export, Environmental Health & Safety and all government compliance for each functional administrative department in the plant so our clients can focus on continuous improvement in production, quality control and growth. NAPS helps mitigate the risk of expanding to a foreign country by shifting all administrative responsibility (and in most cases, liability) to our team of over 200 professionals in Mexico. Get in touch with us if you have any questions about the industry or our manufacturing services in Mexico.
