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. Additionally, GE and Rolls Royce have chosen Mexico for new turbine system production, while global companies like Fokker Aerostructurers and Safran Group benefit from aerospace manufacturing in Mexico for their production of jet wings and landing systems, respectively.
Meanwhile, estimates reveal the U.S. is responsible for approximately 48% of foreign direct investment. As a result, the Mexican government is committed to this sector with a comprehensive plan designed to increase aerospace manufacturing in Mexico even further. Mexico’s aerospace industry already covers five main regions in Baja California (specifically Tijuana and Mexicali), Sonora, Chihuahua, Queretaro, and Nuevo Leon.
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. However, other clusters throughout the country are continuing to expand to support market demand. Furthermore, a solid infrastructure and supply chain give U.S. and other foreign manufacturers confidence they can rely on aerospace manufacturing in Mexico as a long-term strategy.
