Maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) goods are used daily by manufacturers in their plants and facilities.

Because our buyers service a sizable client base, we are able to procure many items from trusted vendors in Mexico in bulk quantities and then pass the cost savings along to you. Our knowledge of the suppliers in the locations in which we operate puts us in the best position to serve you.

  • Centralized physical MRO inventory

    Since many MRO commodities are used by a number of our clients, we keep these items on hand in storage so that they are ready precisely when you need them.

  • Broad spectrum of products

    Tecma has a deep knowledge of vendors in Mexico. We procure items such as lubricants and cleaners, office supplies, repair tools, hand tools, and more, thus ensuring your business success.

  • Highly responsive service

    Our MRO purchasing staff stands ready to assist you expeditiously when you’ve run out of something. We know that important items procured to support your operation are critical to its success.

  • Strict vendor compliance

    We ensure vendor compliance with all established terms and conditions. This means you will receive your MRO items on time, in good condition, and in the quantities that you’ve ordered.

Develop MRO Quotes

Our Mexico vendor management service adds value to your operation. Tecma’s purchasing experts solicit quotes for widely used MRO items. Their knowledge of Mexican markets guarantees that you receive the best products promptly and at the best price possible.

Initiate Purchase Orders (POs)

Save time when we generate POs for your company. A PO is a commercial document and an offer issued by Tecma to vendors in Mexico. It controls supplier transactions. Let Tecma experts perform this important task for you.

Manage Vendor Contracts

Tecma manages contracts for MRO items. Managing vendor agreements is important because they define payment terms and service levels and enforce compliance. Effective contract management results in greater ease in supplier onboarding and eliminates the unplanned renewal of orders.

Fulfill Emergency Orders

When you need something “yesterday,” chasing critical MRO supplies can be a stressful experience. Tecma has an extensive database of Mexican vendors and can identify one that will be able to expedite your order to promptly address your company’s needs.

Strike Better Deals

Tecma purchasing staff is always on the lookout to find great deals. Because we buy in volume, we are optimally positioned to strongly leverage our purchasing power in price negotiations. The result of this circumstance is that you save.

Just what is a Mexican Shelter for Manufacturers?

E.g.

Perhaps you have a robust manufacturing operation in the US, but want to move manufacturing to Mexico to reduce costs. Opening a factory in a foreign country is layered in bureaucratic complexities, liabilities, and logistics hassle.

A shelter is a legal structure already established in Mexico under which you can operate as a division. This allows you to focus only on core functions while the shelter company handles everything from tax compliance to import/export to accounting and HR.
