What industries are prominent in Mexican manufacturing?
Mexico has a diverse and robust manufacturing sector, with key industries ranging from automotive and aerospace to electronics and medical devices. The country is a global player in automotive manufacturing and has seen significant growth in aerospace and electronics. It also has a strong presence in the home appliances, plastics, textiles and clothing, and furniture sectors.
What is the process for setting up a manufacturing operation in Mexico?
Setting up a manufacturing operation in Mexico involves several steps, including legal incorporation, obtaining necessary permits, and site selection. This represents a steep learning curve in legal, tax, labor, and accounting matters, as well as language and cultural barriers, among others. Because of this, many companies partner with experienced shelter service providers in Mexico who can streamline the process and help ensure a soft landing for your operations in Mexico.
How does Mexico's trade relationship with the United States impact manufacturing?
Mexico's trade relationship with the United States has significantly impacted the manufacturing sector. The USMCA trade agreement has further reduced trade barriers and provides updated rules of origin, intellectual property protection, and regulatory harmonization, making it easier for U.S. companies to operate in Mexico. In addition, geopolitical factors and Mexico's competitive labor rates, quality of goods, and logistical advantages make it a logical choice for U.S. companies.
What are the environmental regulations for manufacturing in Mexico?
Mexico has environmental regulations in place to protect its natural resources and ecosystems. Manufacturers must comply with environmental laws, obtain permits, and manage waste responsibly. Understanding and adhering to these regulations is crucial for sustainable and legal operations.
What is the maquiladora program (IMMEX), and how does it benefit manufacturers?
The IMMEX program, or the Mexican Manufacturing, Maquila, and Export Services Industry program, was established in 2006 to attract foreign investment in Mexico's manufacturing sector. It allows companies to defer or even waive import taxes, value-added tax, and countervailing duties on raw materials and equipment used in manufacturing for export. This results in significant cost savings for international companies manufacturing in Mexico.
