In an effort to strengthen the e-commerce industry in the state of Mexico, BTS Development is building the Campus Cuautitlán I Industrial Park and is expected to generate 450 jobs during its construction phase and will total up to 1,500 once it starts operations.
The industrial park aims to develop the goods and services purchasing industry of the State of Mexico. This sector has increasingly grown during the COVID-19 pandemic thanks to the rise of e-commerce. The project has an investment of over US$50 million with over 91,000 square meters. The company´s website does not mention a starting date.
There have been other major projects in the State of Mexico that have contributed to the e-commerce business economy. For example, the expansion of e-commerce and retail giant Amazon in Mexico with its new logistics center in Tepotzotlan. This logistics hub aims to create new job opportunities and shorten delivery times in the country’s central region, reported by MBN. “We are very happy to meet with Governor Alfredo del Mazo to announce our plans for expansion in Tepotzotlan. We will keep working with him and the State of Mexico,” said Amazon Mexico Public Affairs on Twitter.
BTS Development has a product portfolio that integrates real estate acquisition, development, leasing and management services to serve world-class companies whose operations require the highest levels of commitment, quality and logistical efficiency, according to the company´s website.
BTS Development presented to the state government the construction project for the Campus Cuautitlán I Industrial Park. In a recent statement in LinkedIn, BTS Development said, “We thank the Government of the State of Mexico, Governor Alfredo del Mazo and Secretary Pablo Peralta for today's meeting in which they allowed us to present our Campus Cuautitlán 1 project, which will generate new sources of employment for Mexicans. BTS Development reaffirms its commitment to invest in the State of Mexico, as it is one of the most important industrial and logistics centers in the country.”
