Entrada Group whitepaper explains why the aerospace industry is flocking to Mexico for manufacturing
On the occasion of the 49th International Paris Air Show, Entrada Group, a leading manufacturing shelter operator, has just published a whitepaper that explores the changing landscape of aerospace in Mexico.

These include geo-politics, an increasingly competitive marketplace, and important changes in sourcing and supply chain practices.

The report goes on to explain that if, in order to remain competitive, a manufacturer requires a lower cost production option, mature supply chain logistics and a highly skilled and stable labor force, then Mexico should absolutely make the ‘short list’ of countries for offshore or nearshore consideration.
“A final critical factor is the business environment,”
