These areas have developed economies of scale that aerospace component manufacturers leverage to overcome the learning curve associated with operating in a foreign country and achieve a desired level of productivity and efficiency.
Over the past 15 years, cost reduction pressures from Aerospace OEM’s in North America and Europe have influenced next-tier suppliers in some industry sectors to establish low-cost manufacturing strategies in Mexico.
While Mexico’s cost structure provides significant savings, other factors are helping the country become an attractive venue for aerospace work. These include:
