Plastic Industry Forum - Converse with Plastics Processing Leaders / Business / Pros and Cons of setting up production in Mexico
Posted:  21 Jul 2008 23:03
Are you aware of research studies on the pro/cons of establishing plastics production in or near the boarder of Mexico? Do you have personal experience?

We have a couple of customers that are pushing for us to develop operations near their facilities in Mexico or at the boarder. It's not part of our business plan today but we need to investigate, perform due diligence and be able to factually respond with a higher level of intelligence when we're "asked." (aka...pressured)

Let me know if there are other contacts that you may know that could help.

I am not aware of any research studies but have first hand experience in and near El Paso, Texas. I would be happy to share our knowledge with you and try to answer questions.
