Ensenada is Baja California’s cargo port city on the Pacific coast of Mexico’s Baja California North peninsula. The city is located approximately 60 miles south of the US-Mexico border with California. It is the third largest city in Baja California with over a half million residents, behind Tijuana and Mexicali.
Ensenada’s large sea port, close proximity to the US, and mild climate make it a popular destination for cruise ships. The port is also a tremendous benefit for manufacturers seeking to transport raw materials and finished goods around the world.
In addition to manufacturing, the city is widely known as “Mexico’s wine capital” with more than 40 vineyards and wineries. Due to the tourism aspect of Ensenada thanks to the cruise lines, many of the residents of Ensenada are bilingual, speaking Spanish and English. Less of a language barrier means that businesses are better able to communicate with, manage, train their workforce.
Thanks in large part to trade agreements made between the United States, Canada, and Mexico, maquiladoras (manufacturing plants owned by foreign companies) are very common in the city of Ensenada and have thrived in the region for decades. International businesses are discovering that Ensenada and other cities in Mexico have as many or more advantages when compared to China and other low cost geographies for manufacturing in foreign countries. Mexico’s IMMEX program, which allows for the transformation of goods in Mexico without the need to pay VAT, has only increased the advantages.
Ensenada is home to industry-leading companies in the textile, music and aerospace industries. O’neill, Fender Guitars, 3M, Coca-Cola, Colgate, Red Bull, Nike, Nestlé, Kimberly-Clark, Unilever, Dialight, Sony, PepsiCo, ICU medical and Hutchinson Aerospace are just some of the International companies who have chosen to establish manufacturing facilities in Ensenada.
A strong population of skilled and unskilled workers who are eagerly seeking work in maquiladoras means that International businesses have an ample supply of affordable labor to draw upon. There is room for industrial growth in this modern city as well. Modern secure industrial buildings are available throughout the city.
Ensenada is 65 miles from the Tijuana International Airport and 89 miles from the San Diego International Airport. The commercial seaport in Long Beach, CA is 203 miles away from Ensenada.
