Helping Clients in Every Situation

download_guideIn the early 1980’s company founder, Sergio Tagliapietra, was utilizing his MBA in industrial engineering running the plant of a U.S. company in Juarez Mexico.  He was then recruited by another American company who was looking for offshore/nearshore manufacturing solutions in Mexico. They asked him to establish and run operations for them in Mexicali, which he successfully did.  Recognizing the potential to assist other U.S. businesses to gain a competitive cost advantage in a global economy, he founded IVEMSA in 1982.

Today IVEMSA is a comprehensive administrative services solution provider with a dedicated team of over 70 professionals in six functional areas.  Many of the IVEMSA team members have been with the company for many years, building and mining the resources and network necessary to provide the smoothest manufacturing operations and shipping possible for companies from around the world.  And no matter how the company has grown, the core values of honesty, integrity, hard work and customer satisfaction, remain at the heart of everything IVEMSA does.

Moving forward, we at IVEMSA will continue to do what has made us so successful to date; stay flexible and responsive, seek new and better ways to cut costs, enhance our service infrastructure and assure client satisfaction and success.


The IVEMSA team is a family of professionals, many who have been, with the company for up to 10 years, and all who are dedicated to our clients success.

What clients are saying

IVEMSA is proud to have long term relationships with clients – in many cases 15 years or more.  Our commitment to their business goals has created a long-term partnership of ongoing successful operations and growth.  We invite you to read our clients experience in their own words.

“Eventually we realized that the price we pay IVEMSA vs. the risk and amount we would have to invest to create a unique entity is well worth it.”

“We realized that with IVEMSA we would be dealing with not only a highly experienced company, but also with a professional and honest group who reflects our own values and emphasis on integrity.”
Rick Martindale
“The IVEMSA group are the experts and what we have is a win-win situation. It just makes more sense to let them handle the import/export side of the business so we can focus on core competencies. IVEMSA isn’t just a business partner, they’re part of our team.”
