Just over 230 miles to the northwest of Mexico City, the colonial hub of Leon is centrally located while affording easy access to Guanajuato International Airport, a little over 20 miles away. With that global entry point, Leon is just a 2-hour flight from Houston, or 3.5 hours from Los Angeles, with easy transport to a number of other United States hubs. This makes it a fitting location for companies that want to ship products to the US market.
Leon has a number of advantages that make it an excellent choice for manufacturing. One of the main benefits of manufacturing in Leon is the low labor costs, which can greatly reduce production costs relative to manufacturing in many other foreign markets. The city also has a skilled and well-educated labor force, with close proximity to the University of Guanajuato, as well as strong infrastructure and a stable political and economic environment. These factors, along with the various incentives and support provided by the Mexican government, make Leon an attractive location for foreign companies who may be looking to establish manufacturing operations in Mexico.
