Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
As part of the rapid growth of the Aerospace cluster, Mexicali, the capital of Baja California will be hosting the 5th annual Aerospace Supplier Forum November 13 and 14. Aerospace manufacturing has experienced major growth in Mexicali and Baja California. With more than 60 companies in the Aerospace manufacturing cluster, Baja California houses over one-fourth of all Aerospace related companies in Mexico. The Aerospace Supplier Forum is held annually to allow suppliers and manufacturers from through North America and the world to convene, forge new relationships, and create new opportunity.
Mexicali is proud to host the Aerospace Forum once again. Mayor Jaime Diaz: “Mexicali welcomes the Aerospace community to Mexicali. Please enjoy our hospitality, learn about our highly skilled and hard-working people, find out about our world-class universities, and see our modern industrial facilities. As the Capital of Baja California, Mexicali is here to provide you and your company the best Mexico has to offer. Aerospace is an important industry to our community.”
Over 25 Aerospace companies already call Mexicali home for their manufacturing facilities. This includes companies like Honeywell, GKN Aerospace, UTC Aerospace Systems, and the only OEM in Baja California, Gulfstream. In addition, many metal, plastic, and electronic manufacturers operate in Mexicali and Baja California to supply these large companies. However, many more suppliers are needed and are coming. Just recently Castle Metals decided to locate a new facility in Mexicali. According to the Industrial Development Commission of Mexicali, the opportunity to supply customers locally was a key factor in Castle Metals’ decision.
The Industrial Development Commission of Mexicali (IDCM) is hosting the 5th Annual Aerospace Forum with the State of Baja California and the Aerospace Cluster of Mexicali. The IDCM assists companies in learning all they need to know about doing business in Mexicali, Baja California, and Mexico. According the President of the Commission, Alfredo Garcia, “The staff and members of the Industrial Development Commission of Mexicali are excited to host once again the Aerospace Supplier Forum. We welcome the over 1,500 attendees, businesses, and exhibitors. With over $50 million in total demand in the Aerospace industry, this forum is an opportunity for suppliers and manufacturers to connect. Our staff is available to assist you in any way we can. Mexicali is home to many, large and modern industrial parks. Mexicali can be a great home for your manufacturing needs.” The IDCM provides site location services, licensing and permitting guidance, assistance determining legal status of the business, human resources, and supplier connections.
Aerospace companies continue to need additional, local suppliers for many products. With the increasing pressure on quick turn-around time for products, limiting the transportation time by having a provider within the region is critical for many of the manufacturers in Baja California. According to the Industrial Development Commission, companies are looking for products like packing supplies and industrial tools. Aerospace companies also need CNC service providers, sheet metal finishing, heat treatments, industrial engineering and design, and service and maintenance on all types of industrial machinery.
