The Aerospace Sector in Sonora, Mexico is the Subject of Offshore Group Podcast

June 7, 2012

TUCSON, Ariz., June 07, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The aerospace industry in Sonora, Mexico, and its more than a decade development trajectory is the subject of the latest of The Offshore Group’s podcasts on Mexico manufacturing and other business topics.

In the interview, Gale Thompson, a longtime maquiladora industry veteran and vice president of international operations of The Offshore Group, speaks in detail of his experiences at the forefront of Sonora’s decade plus effort to develop the aerospace manufacturing base that it has in place today.

According to Thompson, “Although at first many were skeptical of Mexican industry’s ability to manufacture complex, high-precision aerospace parts, the country has proven, in a relatively short period of time, that it has what it takes in terms of the physical, educational and human infrastructure to become one of the premier suppliers to the global aerospace industry in the coming years.”

Sonora is located in Northwest Mexico, bordered by the states of Chihuahua to the east, Baja California to the northwest and Sinaloa to the south. To the north, it shares the U.S.- Mexico border with the states of Arizona and New Mexico, and on the west has a significant share of the coastline of the Gulf of California. Information on its economy and business environment can be found on its Economic Development Council’s website.

The Offshore Group is the largest provider of outsourced business support, “shelter” services in Mexico. Currently 61 businesses operate at The Offshore Group’s three Mexico manufacturing industrial parks in the State of Sonora, the city of Saltillo, Coahuila, and at the Group’s Vangtel subsidiary in Hermosillo. Vangtel offers Mexico shelter services to companies that occupy the call center, IT development and BPO markets, while the International Logistic Solutions Company (ILS) is a leading provider of supply chain services. The Offshore Group has recently initiated operations in Mexico’s second largest city, Guadalajara. Sign up to receive information via Offshore Group RSS Feeds.
