BuyINSPECT Quality Control services in Mexico jumped up by 30% in 2012 and is still climbing up in 2013.
The main reason is because the Mexican labor cost is getting to be at par with the Chinese labor cost per worker. Many US companies have worked out that it is definitely cost smart to use Mexican suppliers or build their own factories across the US/Mexico border. Logistically there is the advantage of shipping finished products and components across to the US border at lower costs and on a “just-in-time” demand and need strategy. It is also easier to manage product recalls, manage returns and reworks on short notice.
Chinese suppliers also find it more cost-effective and easier to sort out quality issues with their US and Mexican customers. BuyINSPECT is doing outgoing Quality Control in China for Chinese suppliers providing components to Chinese Mexican setups in Tijuana, Mexicali and Juarez. BuyINSPECT is doing incoming inspection for contract manufactures for Chinese components in Guadalajara for Solectron and others assembling for US customers.
Mexico’s President Neito has transformed the Mexican employment law. Finally, employers are not hired prisoners by the old Mexican labor laws which make it difficult to adjust your manpower needs simply because it is too costly to retrench workers or fire an employee. This has attracted Chinese suppliers and manufacturers who have found Mexico to be an investment attraction.
