Companies that have their products made in China are increasingly seeking to diversify their supply chains away from China and its COVID/Omicron factory shutdowns, rising energy costs and shortages, rising wages, sky-high shipping costs, and “Trump tariffs” — all of which are likely to continue indefinitely.
Not surprisingly all this is making Mexico increasingly important as a manufacturing hub, especially for products that will be sold in the United States or Canada. Moving your manufacturing to Mexico will give you proximity to U.S. and Canadian markets, modern infrastructure, access to ports for global distribution, and a highly skilled, well-educated and reasonably-priced workforce.
Please join us on Tuesday, February 8th at 2pm CST/12pm PST for our FREE webinar on Moving Your Manufacturing to Mexico, co-hosted by Harris Bricken and GlobalAutoIndustry.com. This FREE webinar will be led by Harris Bricken attorneys Dan Harris and Adrián Cisneros Aguilar, and Mexico manufacturing expert Alejandra Maldonado. This event will be moderated by Ron Hesse, Chairman & CEO of GlobalAutoIndustry.com.
