Advantages of Aerospace Manufacturing in Mexico

The aerospace industry in Mexico is among its fastest growing—for the past 10 years, it’s seen 17.2% annual growth, with companies like Gulfstream, Honeywell, GKN Aerospace and Collins Aerospace setting up operations. The Mexican government is committed to this sector, with a comprehensive plan designed to increase aerospace manufacturing in Mexico. One of the main regions for Mexico’s aerospace industry is Baja California (specifically Tijuana and Mexicali), where IVEMSA is well-positioned to help you locate a site and tap into the growing talent pool.

Tap Into a Growing Pool of Engineers

Whether you’re manufacturing individual parts or assembling large components and systems, you need a large, skilled workforce. Over 110,000 engineers are graduating each year from Mexican universities and vocational schools—which is three times higher than in the U.S. Companies are even able to coordinate R&D with universities, giving them early access to these students when they graduate and join the workforce.


Setting up your aerospace operations in a region like Baja California, which has the largest concentration of aerospace companies, means there’s a robust local supply chain already in place.
