Contract Manufacturing Operations have the obvious
effect of a limited oversight of quality control and logistics - especially
true for operations in Asia.
A Wholly Owned Subsidiary allows a manufacturer complete control over
all aspects of their business. However, it involves a long-term commitment,
has high start-up costs and requires knowledge of doing business in
Mexico. This option is appropriate for large multinationals that are
experienced in offshore operations. Many companies currently operating
as a wholly owned subsidiary in Mexico began their operations through
the use of a Shelter where they gained necessary experience with a
minimum amount of risk.
A Joint Venture with a Mexican partner who knows the local business
environment is an option for some manufacturers. Finding the right
partner - one who will contribute expertise, technology and capital
- makes this option difficult to pursue and impractical for most.
In a Shelter Operation, we perform most tasks involved with opening
a manufacturing facility in Mexico. A Shelter is a relatively risk-free
way to begin
manufacturing / assembling in Mexico. The manufacturer provides the
production equipment and retains control over quality while the Shelter
manufacturing facility, the workforce, Customs services and is responsible
the permits, licenses and legal requirements. The Shelter Plan allows
the opportunity to test productivity and savings. Both start up costs
and start up
times are minimized.
