In the current global business climate, many companies are looking to diversify supply chains and make them more flexible, as well as reduce dependence on China and lower manufacturing costs. There are many ways to do this for companies around the globe, and one option to consider is to expand or start up operations in Mexico.
With the recent enactment of the USMCA, this is especially attractive for companies in North America wanting to establish nearshore manufacturing operations. Though this type of expansion offers many advantages, it may seem overwhelming at first, which a good reason to contact a trusted provider of shelter services in Mexico. These experts can help companies assess if the decision to start up business in Mexico is right for them and act as a guide in navigating new and foreign territory.
Working with a shelter services provider through this process allows companies to focus 100% on what they do best—their manufacturing operations, engineering, quality control, maintenance, design and scheduling, and maintain full control over production and quality, raw materials, and their machinery and equipment.
On the other hand, clients get to pass off the high-learning curve side of doing business in a foreign country with a different language, culture, laws, regulations, accounting processes, and environmental regulations, just to name a few. This includes everything from human resources and staffing needs, to networking and being able to take advantage of a providers’ well-established network of suppliers and economies of scale.
Companies can even rest easy knowing that their employees’ relocation processes will go smoothly, as providers assist with everything from visa applications to finding schools, and helping people get their bearings in a new place. This ensures that companies have a solid foundation from the start as they establish and expand in Mexico.
Having a trusted shelter services partner gives clients the peace of mind of knowing that they have an entire team behind them that has the expertise and knowledge gained by having gone through this process with companies across all types of industries, ranging from the automotive industry Mexico, medical devices manufacturing Mexico and even the aerospace industry in Mexico.
In many ways, providers act as a concierge, supporting companies and ensuring that everything is in place for them to expand and succeed as quickly as possible, keeping a constant pulse on a clients’ short and long term interests, always abreast of changing regulations, laws, and agreements that may have an effect on operations, and finding ways to save money, make processes more agile and optimize all aspects of a company’s back office.
By having a trusted support team, clients will be set up to excel on all levels, from providing the best working conditions for employees thereby reducing turnover, ensuring compliance with all tax and other obligations, as well as take advantage of all government programs available, such as the IMMEX program for international companies in Mexico, and count on a seamless flow of goods, effortless customs clearance, maximized duty savings and fast start up, among a range of other benefits, making what appears to be overwhelming into an easy-to-navigate pathway to success.
