CPI Your Ideal Partner in Mexico

Despite the rhetoric and relentless sound bites currently emanating from Washington, companies manufacturing products for the North American marketplace know that the border is an ideal location to expand their operations. Tijuana is at the heart of the Binational Mega-Region, encompassing Baja California, San Diego County and the Imperial Valley. This region is strategically located to supply the lucrative California market and with easy access to the Pacific Rim.

CPI will ensure your maquiladora operations in Mexico are expertly managed and comply with every aspect of the law.


We hear talk of the U.S. renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement NAFTA. No matter what modifications are made, those working on both sides of the border know that the maquiladora industry is here to stay. It is a powerhouse that contributes enormously to the economies of the US, Canada and Mexico. When NAFTA was signed 24 years ago, many US companies were very concerned about losing jobs. However, we live in a globalized world and corporations seek to optimize their bottom line. Industry has gone around the globe to remain competitive. Manufacturing in Mexico has mostly been a net positive, keeping costs affordable and jobs in North America. As costs in the U.S. rose, many manufacturers opted for China, Bangladesh and other offshore locations. Now labor costs are rising even in China, with many of their locations closely matching Mexico’s labor costs, around $3 dollars an hour. The beauty of Mexico’s near-shore location is that it is our next -door neighbor. Tijuana is just 2 to 3 hours from the port of Long Beach. Ensenada offers another option to transport your goods.

Working with CPI, a Shelter company that is a leader in the northwest of Mexico, you can rest assured every detail will be taken care of. From visiting our offices in San Diego and Tijuana, to selecting an industrial building, reviewing contracts, working with HR to select the best personnel, every aspect of your manufacturing expansion into Mexico will be professionally managed.

After a thorough search of shelter companies in Mexico, ICON selected CPI because of their local expertise and cultural fit with ICON. CPI demonstrated they understood the keys to ICON’s success in Mexico and that they could execute quickly given ICON accelerated timeline. - Thomas Wieners, Vice President of Manufacturing for ICON Aircraft
