During this one-hour webinar you will learn about why so many U.S. manufacturers have moved production to Mexico under Mexico’s “Maquiladora Program”. If you ever considered moving some of your production to Mexico and didn’t….it might be time to think about it again. Some of the benefits that Mexico offers U.S. manufacturers are:

Close proximity to the United States
A young, low-cost, quality conscious workforce
No restrictions on foreign investment
The benefits afforded Mexico under the NAFTA
Mexico's 12 Free Trade Agreements with 32 countries
Since the inception of the Maquiladora Program in 1965 over 3,000 U.S. manufacturers have moved production to Mexico. The Maquiladora Program:

Allows Maquiladoras to be 100% foreign owned
Allow Maquiladoras to import duty free into Mexico all production related machinery, equipment, materials, and components where the articles are covered by NAFTA Certificates of Origin
Does not restrict what can be produced by a Maquiladoras
Allow Maquiladoras to sell a signification portion of their production in the Mexican national market
During the webinar you will hear two plant managers of U.S.-owned Maquiladoras present case histories of their move to Mexico and the president of Mexico’s oldest “Shelter Plan Program” will explain how easy it is to start-up and operate a Maquiladora Plant under the shelter plan.
