Made in Mexico
April 29, 2013
The term “Made in Mexico” is quickly becoming better acquainted with the automotive industry manufacturing in Mexico, in comparison to its former relationship to low-skill, high volume production of textiles.
Mexico has made a tremendous turn around within the last decade in regards to manufacturing. They have gained support with their North American counterparts through import and exports and with a new government in place looking to gain annual growth through recent economic reforms.
Central states occupy high-tech manufacturing, not only in the workforce but in educational fields as well, which draws in foreign investors. They overlook the harsh stigma Mexico has received over the years and view Mexico as a quality investment.
The automotive manufacturing industry is dispersed across Mexico, with a growing concentration in Guanajuato and Aguascalientes. These states, as well as other regions, enable automotive manufacturing to illustrate Mexico’s growing potential and have items “Made in Mexico” as a credible venture.
Popular automakers such as Volkswagen, Nissan, Honda, Mazda and Audi are all building plants that will only aid to this growing industry.
With the automotive industry in Mexico growing, skilled workers are in high demand and will often jump from high affiliated institutions. There is a large surge of students that are obtaining secondary schooling with the aim of graduating from a technical school or earning a degree to keep up with the demand from manufacturing in Mexico. Chances for employment increase for these graduates as they enter the workforce, particularly with regard to Mexico manufacturing.
There are various components that compromise the credibility of “made in Mexico”. Both its manufacturing field and abundant pool of educated graduates have helped mold its changing image.
