The Tecma Group of Companies acquires Made in Mexico, Inc.

The emergence of a dominant US-Mexico border region provider of Mexican Manufacturing Support Services (shelter services) is the result of the acquisition of Made in Mexico, Inc. by the El Paso, Texas-based Tecma Group of Companies.

The Tecma Group of Companies is pleased to announce that it has established a permanent and sizable presence in one of the US-Mexico border’s most dynamic and fastest growing manufacturing centers: Tijuana, Baja California.

The decision to commit to the creation of an ongoing Mexican shelter operation in Tijuana was made as a result of a steadily expanding demand for Tecma’s services by manufacturers in Mexico’s westernmost state, and was achieved through Tecma’s acquisition of Made in Mexico, Inc. The purchase was completed effective October 1st.

As a result of the acquisition of Made in Mexico, Tecma has positioned itself to be the foremost provider of outsourced manufacturing support services for companies that wish to setup and maintain production operations in nearshore proximity to the United States, the world’s most developed consumer market. The pairing of Tecma and Made in Mexico, has resulted in the formation of a formidable new entity that:

· provides outsourced manufacturing support, or shelter services to more than fifty          companies that have Mexico operations;
· employs a total of over five thousand five hundred workers;
· occupies more than 2.5 million square feet of world-class, quality industrial real-estate.

K. Alan Russell, co-founder, president and CEO of the Tecma Group of Companies, views the acquisition of Made in Mexico as a win for everyone:

“Due to growing demand for Tecma services, we wanted to create a base station with a local presence in Tijuana. Without more “talent on the ground,” however, we felt that we were somewhat handicapped. In order to overcome this circumstance, we sought local talent, as well as to purchase a local company. In that search, we discovered Made in Mexico.”

“Made in Mexico was co-founded thirty years ago by Dale Robinson and two additional partners. We discovered that it was remarkably similar to Tecma with respect to its corporate culture, and its commitment to quality and integrity in all of its business dealings. We believe that our expanded capabilities to provide Mexico shelter services in an additional and key location will provide a solution for manufacturers that are seeking to “up their game” on the competitive global stage.”
