US and Canadian based businesses have been moving their manufacturing facilities to Mexico for decades because of the incredible advantages and cost savings.

So you’ve decided to move your company’s manufacturing to Mexico in order to take advantage of the numerous financial benefits. How do you proceed from here?

Well, there are two viable options for moving forward. The first is to go with a standalone operation and figure it all out on your own. The second option is to seek help from a shelter services company, like what we provide at Tacna Services, Inc.

Creating a manufacturing facility in Mexico which imports raw materials duty free and exports the finished goods to a non-Mexican foreign market requires a business to register as an IMMEX facility (also known as a maquiladora). In addition, a company will need to seek out a factory for manufacturing. Then you will need to source, hire, train, and manage the employees along with navigating payroll, logistics, tax requirements, labor laws, obtaining many permits, complying with environmental, health and safety regulations and complying with customs requirements on both sides of the border, all the while dealing with a language barrier and cultural barrier (assuming you and your team are not fluent in Spanish and conversant with Mexican cultural norms).

Although it is worth it, moving your manufacturing to Mexico can be overwhelming for most businesses, particularly, if going it alone. The hurdles of tackling this endeavor by oneself is too much for many businesses to endure on their own. Mexico is regulatorily complex.

Inexperience in trying to start up a Mexico manufacturing operation by oneself, not only makes the transition difficult, but it also slows down the process. A very large company may have the resources to hire expensive attorneys, accountants and other professionals directly to learn on their own the ins and outs of doing business in Mexico. However, for most companies, increasingly including larger ones seeking manufacturing in Mexico, there needed to be a better option.

Thus, shelter services companies became a necessity for many of these US, Canadian and other globally based businesses to help bridge the gap.

Shelter services help to make the process of manufacturing goods in Mexico much easier for foreign companies. Shelter services already have multiple  IMMEX permits in place and the foreign companies, using shelter services companies, can enter Mexico and begin manufacturing production of goods as a division of the shelter service with a much reduced timeline and cost..
