Tecma Group of El Paso, Texas announced this week it will develop a Mexican manufacturing support services (shelter services) operation in Tijuana.
The expansion comes through the acquisition of the company Made in Mexico, completed October 1, and is a result of the increasing demand in the region by manufacturers based in Mexico's westernmost state.
The purchase of Made in Mexico puts Tecma in a strategic location where it will able to supply companies seeking production operations near the United States. The new company will support more than 50 companies with operations in Mexico with a staff of 5,500 employees. The company occupies more than 2.5 million square feet of industrial real-estate.
"Due to growing demand for Tecma services, we wanted to create a base station with a local presence in Tijuana," Tecma Group CEO K. Alan Russell said. "Without more talent on the ground, however, we felt that we were somewhat handicapped. In order to overcome this circumstance, we sought local talent, as well as to purchase a local company. In that search, we discovered Made in Mexico."
