OUR PROCESS

The most important first step in our process of response to inquiries from companies is “good listening.”  Whether a prospective client is interested in establishing their own manufacturing operation in Mexico, finding a suitable supplier of parts, establishing a sales and marketing office, creating a distribution network, or evaluating logistics options, listening to the “wants and needs”
of the prospect is vital to a successful relationship as well as a successful project conclusion.

Although not necessary in all cases, when a new manufacturing operation or a new supplier in Mexico is desired, an early visit to the company’s plant sites is important in viewing the production process, machinery and equipment and utilities required, and labor skills necessary, among others.  Also of importance for a wholly-owned operation would be the source of raw materials and components as well as the destination of finished product.   Other essential pieces of information would be the tentative timetable for start-up, the initial space for production, and the forecast for expansion.

The goal of Mexico Consulting Associates is to be part of its client’s team, assisting the client’s functional managers in ensuring that their “wants and needs” in relation to the new operation, the new office, or the new supplier in Mexico are fully satisfied.
