Facility management, including plant managers, operations managers, production managers and QC managers make up a large portion of the indirect labor force in Mexico. These highly skilled and well-experienced individuals are increasingly sought after in the Mexican labor force.
Demand for engineers in Mexico, including manufacturing, electrical, process and mechanical, is rapidly growing. The aerospace, medical device, electronics, automotive, consumer product and metal mechanics industries are increasingly expanding the scope of their Mexico manufacturing operations, thus requiring a larger pool of engineers to run their facilities. In fact, Mexico graduated more engineers in 2021 than did the United States.
Supervisors make up the remainder of indirect labor required in virtually every manufacturing facility in Mexico. Unlike managers in Mexico, supervisors typically receive salaries below that of their U.S. counterparts, depending on their experience and seniority.
