Trademark Plastics, Inc. Case Study

Manufacturing Expert Co-Production International inks deal with Medical Device Manufacturer to Open Plant in Tijuana.

CPI soft landing services include site selection, construction management and administrative support for medical device manufacturer Trademark Plastics; multi-year deal.

SAN DIEGO: Trademark Plastics will have a new medical device manufacturing plant in Tijuana Mexico, thanks to Co-Production International (CPI).

Under terms of the contract, CPI will provide site selection, manage the construction process and provide day-to-day administrative services once the plant is operational.

Trademark Plastics, Inc., is a Riverside, California custom injection-molding company that supplies components to the medical device industry. In its initial phase, Trademark Plastics’ Tijuana plant will encompass 33,000 square feet of space, including a 20,000 square foot Class 100,000 clean room.

The manufacturing area of the new Trademark Plastics plant will house 15 injection-molding machines and an assembly line. CPI will assist Trademark in the hiring of approximately 50 employees, including a number with the advanced skills sets to operate sophisticated manufacturing equipment.

Tijuana and the Baja area have a deep pool of highly-skilled talent. Mexico is producing more engineers per year than the U.S., many of whom are bilingual. That skilled employee pool is critical to a company like Trademark Plastics, said Enrique Esparza, CEO of Co-Production International.

  Tijuanais just 25 miles south of San Diego. With its proximity to U.S. metropolitan areas and transport routes, Tijuana is a near-shore manufacturing and processing center for U.S. companies, a development accelerated by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

CPI has a long history of assisting American firms with nearshoring, particularly in the medical device manufacturing and aerospace industries. The company’s deep knowledge base allows it to efficiently provide a client like Trademark with an end-to-end range of services – site selection, construction management, operational administration and personnel, customs and logistics support and aid in compliance with Mexican regulations.

Our mission at CPI is very clear, We will handle all the logistics, and that allows Trademark Plastics to focus on producing high-precision medical devices, CPI’s Esparza said.

Trademark Plastics plans to open the Mexico manufacturing plant in the fourth quarter of 2015 or first quarter of 2016, according to John Taylor, Trademark Plastics Vice President of Operations.

Taylor said the company intends to expand its Tijuana plant over a three-year period, adding facilities for much larger injection-molding machines with up to 500 tons of clamping force, and then a second expansion of manufacturing and assembly that will bring the total facility to 127,000 square feet.

CPI has its U.S. office in San Diego and its Mexico office in Tijuana and Tecate, both are near the U.S. border, in the Mexican state of Baja California.

Currently, Mexico’s Baja California region is the largest concentration of medical device manufacturing in North America. More than 70 medical device plants are in Tijuana, served by a 50,000-person workforce. As a result, Mexico is the fifth largest exporter of medical products in the world, with 50% of these exports originating with Baja California manufacturers.
