Sourcing in Mexico

Manufacturing in Mexico has been on the rise in recent years, due in part to the country’s proximity to the United States and its large pool of skilled labor. Many multinational companies have set up operations in Mexico, taking advantage of its low labor costs and access to North American markets.

The most prominent industries in Mexico are the automotive, aviation and aerospace, medical device, apparel and textile, and consumer products industries.

The automotive industry is one of the most important sectors for Mexican manufacturing. In 2020, Mexico produced over 3 million vehicles, making it the seventh largest producer of automobiles in the world. Most of these vehicles are exported to the United States, which is Mexico’s largest trading partner.

Other important sectors for Mexican manufacturing include electronics, chemicals, aerospace, and medical devices. Mexico has become a leading global supplier of electronics goods such as flat-screen TVs and laptops. The country’s chemicals industry has also grown rapidly in recent years, and it is now one of Latin America’s largest producers of petrochemicals.

Meanwhile, the aerospace sector has benefited from Mexico’s growing reputation as an attractive destination for aircraft assembly and maintenance. The medical device sector is also booming thanks to rising demand from both domestic and foreign markets.

An Initial Production Check (IPC) is performed on raw materials and first run product. Before mass production, Testcoo inspectors onsite in Mexico will evaluate the first 10%-30% units produced to ensure compliance with necessary criteria, brand specifications, quality requirements which can firmly establish whether the manufacturer will be able to deliver on the promise to produce a quality product using the correct materials and manufacturing process, and orders shipping on time.

During Production Check (DUPRO)

During Production Check (DUPRO) in Mexico is an essential preventative measure taken in the early stages of production, which can mitigate costly mistakes in the long run by highlighting any problems before too many defective items are produced and avoid effecting the shipping schedule. Quality control inspectors of Testcoo usually perform on-site DUPRO inspections once a minimum of 30%, but no more than 50% of finished goods are produced to ensure consistent quality in the manufacturing process.
