Why Mexico?

Why Mexico May Be The Better Option…

Looking for a comparison of manufacturing costs and other benefits of Mexico vs China? Many companies are now taking a harder look at manufacturing in Mexico over China. Some of Mexico's advantages over China are..

  1. Lower transportation costs.
  2. Experienced dedicated and family oriented work force.
  3. Proximity to North America
  4. Easy access for customer factory visits.
  5. Short material transfer transit times. (3 days)
  6. Fully burden cost between China and Mexico are now very close to each other.

Avg. Manufacturing Wage

The fact that Mexico allows it's currency to appreciate in the world currency market allows wages to remain relatively stable. China on the other hand does not allow the Yuan to appreciate in the world currency which makes the Yuan susceptible to spikes and uncertainty in wage growth. The Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) signed in 1994 has also stimulated grow through fewer taxes for material not allow it's currency to appreciate in the world currency which makes it susceptible to spikes and uncertainty in wage growth. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) established in 1994 has also produced growth between the U.S and Mexico with fewer duty's and taxes.

Some quick comparative facts of Mexico vs China Manufacturing.

Engineering and customer visits normally need months of preparation and at least a week out of the office.
Economy is closely tied to the U.S. with long term trend of the Mexico peso slightly deflationary to the dollar.
Currency is artificially tied to the dollar, but inflation is significant, putting a strain on the low labor costs that are now rising.

Product can be shipped per box or pallet, with relatively low shipping costs, and in most cases with little or no duties.

Shipping time from Mexico is 3 days

Generally need to ship in containers and loads that are not flexible.

Duties and tariffs can be substantial depending on tariff code.

Possible dock strikes may also hold up product.


Any issues can be addressed with our Salem facility, product can be made in both facilities. Root cause will always come from our Mexico facility though so future issues are not a problem.

Current quality is under 300ppm

Many quality issues arise at start-up, given the distance and communication barriers it is very difficult to deal with the rejects logistically. Many times product just needs to be scrapped.

Intellectual property is protected by Mexico's courts, who typically respect and enforce the rights of our customers.

Intellectual property in China is not respected and many times counterfeited.
