Great Things are Happening — The advantages of conducting business in Mexico
Nogales, AZ (Vocus) December 22, 2010
Collectron International Management’s Shelter Program is dedicated to assisting global manufacturers in establishing operations in Sonora, Mexico. Collectron is Mexico’s original Shelter Plan, with more than 40 years experience in the management of all details required to secure Mexican business permits, customize site selection, recruit well-trained personnel and assist in compliance with environmental rules and regulations.
“The Mexican government offers unique programs and incentives to potential manufacturing partners, particularly in high tech manufacturing fields,” says Maria Elena Rigoli, President of Collectron. Supported by the local, state and federal governments of Mexico, Collectron has helped more than 200 companies start up and operate their maquiladora operations in Mexico in such areas as electronics, medical devices, aerospace, moulding and plastics, automotive, and communication devices.
According to consulting firm AlixPartners, Mexico currently offers the lowest manufacturing costs among Brazil, China and India. Mexico’s proximity to the U.S. offers the cost- and time-saving advantages of near-shoring as opposed to offshore outsourcing in China or India. Manufacturing along the northern border of Mexico (Sonora) offers immediate access to the United States through the Port of Nogales along with the availability of U.S. major transportation companies.
In addition, manufacturing in Mexico offers the strategic advantage of being located in one of the world’s largest developing economies with a work force skilled in high-tech manufacturing. Mexico also offers the advantage of free trade agreements with more than 32 countries.
Furthermore, Collectron understands that the most important asset of a business is their intellectual property. Mexico’s legal system enforces intellectual property rights through civil remedies conforming with NAFTA requirements of legal standards familiar to North America thus making a much better manufacturing choice over China.
Collectron (http://www.collectron.com) also understands that the equation for manufacturing profitability has become more complex in recent years. The focus on cost of labor has evolved, and Collectron offers the experience and expertise to help companies successfully implement a broader strategy of Lean Manufacturing. Mexico’s contiguity with the United States makes Just-in-Time production possible along with reduced shipping costs compared to off-shoring.
Collectron’s Maquiladora Shelter Program offers multiple resources including special customs status and duty-free imports on all production-related machinery, equipment, materials and components produced in North America and covered by NAFTA. Collectron also provides import/export management, guidance and representation for environmental and labor compliance, customized site selection and staffing, on-going human resource administration and more. Combined, these benefits offer reduced costs throughout the entire project.

Tripp Hindle of Hitran Corporation (http://www.collectron.com/testimonials/90-testimonial-tripp) sums up his company’s satisfaction by saying, “We’ve come here and with the help of a company like Collectron we’ve been very successful. Mexico is open for business ““ there’s no question about it.”
“Collectron is about business, but we’re about people, too,” says Maria Elena. “I believe in the power of good people and I believe in the benefits of working together to continue to forge a positive and productive relationship between global companies. Working together, we will continue to take constructive steps forward, not just in the manufacturing industry, but far beyond that.”
