Medical Device Manufacturing in Mexico:
High Quality at a Lower Cost

Mexico, especially Baja California, offers plenty of advantages for medical device manufacturing. With ideal locations right on the border, companies like Medtronic, Becton Dickinson, and Masimo see quick turnaround times from order to delivery for high mix/ low volume manufacturing. It’s also close to San Diego, the United States’ fourth-largest life sciences technology hub, where many Mexican professionals get additional training at its top universities and institutions.

With 38+ years experience, IVEMSA has worked with companies across industries, of all sizes, and in every part of the supply chain.
