Quality Mexican shelter services provided by Tecma penetrate the Baja California market.

The El Paso, Texas-based Tecma Group of Companies has recently expanded the geographic reach of its Mexican shelter services by establishing operations in Rosarito, a municipality of 65,000 residents in the western border state of Baja California. The community is situated twenty miles south of the principal West Coast border town of Tijuana.

The Tecma Group of Companies first Baja California client will be housed in 50,000 square feet of industrial space, and will eventually employ  up to eighty workers. They will be involved in recycling activities that include the classification and sorting of used clothing for export from the country.

In Mexico, activities that are textile-based require stringent inventory control and recordkeeping. Sorting and classification of clothing performed in the Mexican Republic requires a special permit from the Mexican Secretary of Economy, through a branch of the nation’s federal Tax Administration Service, known by its Spanish acronym, SAT.  The Tecma Group is currently the only holder of such a document.

According to Jose Grajeda, the Tecma Group’s Vice President of Operations, “Our company sees the beginnng of activites in Rosarito as a first step in firmly planting the Tecma flag to offer Mexican shelter services in the active Baja California industrial corridor. We are certain that our well-developed systems and Mexican shelter services will be attractive to companies that look to Mexico’s westernmost border region as a place at which to conduct their nearshore manufacturing activities.”
