Manufacturing Independence in Mexico

From sanctuary to soaring – how some companies benefit from manufacturing independence in Mexico.


Imagine. You’ve been manufacturing in Mexico under a shelter operations model with a local partner, and now you’re ready to spread your wings. But the transition from a shelter model to a standalone operation can seem daunting.

That’s where we come in. A copilots to growth, we have guided multiple companies to operational independence in Mexico.

Benefits to a Standalone Operation

Some companies benefit from a standalone or independent manufacturing operation in Mexico.

  • Isolate the Operation – this can be beneficial if there is a concern for risk from a multitenant operation that may share permits, trade incentives or tax structures
  • Quality – maintaining full control over quality can enhance brand reputation and customer trust
  • Customization – over time business plans can change, and the ability to reevaluate the business structure can identify new opportunities
  • Growth Potential – as a standalone operation, you have the opportunity to expand and scale your business without any restrictions or limitations
  • Ownership – gaining full ownership and control of your operations allow you to make decisions based on what is best for your business plan and growth strategy
  • Relationships – having a direct relationship to suppliers gives leverage to negotiate terms and build more robust relationships
  • Employer of Choice – full control over the definition of organizational development, compensation, labor environment, company culture and brand
