Mexico has replaced China as American companies’ most favorite manufacturing base. It is favored due to various reasons, one of which is it helps to boost the American economy since most raw materials used in those maquiladoras are imported from the USA.
While the ultimate advantage of offshoring the manufacturing to Mexico is the reduced expenses and increased profits for US companies, there are at least ten other advantages.
In conclusion, manufacturing Mexico allows American companies to save costs and use a greater portion of their profits for research and product development. This, in return, would increase more production to be manufactured in Mexico. The maquiladora industry provides Mexico with good employment, economic stability, and foreign exchange. A win-win relationship, indeed.
