Meeting Demand Leads to Manufacturing in Mexico

As part of a revised production plan announced in May, ICON Aircraft decided to produce its own composite components, a manufacturing process that was previously outsourced to several suppliers. Their new Tijuana plant will focus on just that while working together with their Vacaville, California headquarters. Companies like ICON are seeing expansion into Mexico as collaborative venture allowing for greater oversight in addition to the cost savings of nearshore production.
