The industrialization of Monterrey has attracted hundreds of manufacturers from around the world. With metal manufacturing dating back to the early 1900s, Monterrey became the center of steel product manufacturing in Mexico. That steel industry in Mexico set the stage for the infrastructure that now supports robust manufacturing efforts across a number of other key industries. That infrastructure includes two international airports, international railway, the country’s largest inland port, and access to major highways.
All of this has made Monterrey one of Mexico’s major manufacturing cities today. It has developed a diverse portfolio of foreign companies and manufacturers from the aerospace, automotive, electronics, textiles, medical devices, and packaging industries.
