At its inception, the draw for foreign manufacturers was its low-cost labor rates. Today the manufacturing landscape is much different; Mexico has attracted global corporations such as Honeywell, Gulfstream, Rockwell Collins and other top companies

Global Aerospace & Defense companies will almost double their manufacturing output in Mexico. The country’s A&D exports were valued at 5.463 billion dollars in 2013 and are expected to grow to 11.3 billion dollars in the next five years. The State of Baja California is a leading authority in the aerospace manufacturing sector with an average yearly growth of above 20% in the last ten years according to the data from the Ministry of Economy (SE).

Esparza is a featured speaker at the Aerospace Electrical Systems Expo, to be held May 19-21th, 2015, at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA.
