The Tecma Group of Companies recently engaged Rafael McCadden, director of industrial and logistics, at Colliers International in Mexico City in a conversation on the topic of current trends in the Mexican industrial real-estate market.
The industry expert predicts that the Mexican industrial real-estate market will be a vibrant one over the course of the next five years. According to him, this will be driven in large part due to the impressive expansion that has occurred, and continues to take place, in the Mexican automotive industry, particularly in the region of the country that is known as the “Bajio.” This is an area consists of the states that are in proximity to Mexico City that includes Aguascalientes, San Luis Potosi, Guanajuato and Queretaro.
During the discussion on the Mexican industrial real-estate market, Rafael McCadden observed that, “What’s happening in the industry is that a lot of the tier one, tier two, and even tier three suppliers are moving in to do just-in-time sequencing for OEM plants. The new plants in the area are basically Japanese plants such as Nissan, Honda and Mazda. The last of which has a JV with Toyota, but also south of Mexico there’s a new Audi project is in the works.”
