The advantages of a shelter program

  • Retain 100% Control

    Purchasing from a contract manufacturer removes you from the quality and process equation. But shelter manufacturing in Mexico gives you full production control, while we absorb the administration, HR, and compliance aspect.

  • Leverage Economies of Scale

    Tecma passes on the savings from large purchases of MRO supplies and service contracts to you. Partnering with Tecma gives you access to our network and group savings.

  • Cut Labor Costs

    Mexico’s maquiladora workforce offers highly trained and specialized labor at rates comparable to or lower than those in China. The average manufacturing wage in Mexico is approximately $2.50/hr.

  • Enjoy Modern Facilities

    Tecma offers state-of-the-art facilities and amenities in all office, production, shipping, and warehousing areas such as air conditioning, dependable energy grid access, security, sanitary facilities, and top-quality lighting.

  • Minimize Risk and Exposure

    We provide a safe haven to our clients, managing all bureaucratic considerations and legal requirements, including permits, regulatory compliance, import/export, labor relations, and accounting.

  • Get Started Immediately

    Tecma works with your team at every stage to select a site, hire the ideal workforce, and acquire equipment so you can start producing in as little as 30-90 days.
