ProMéxico

Building a national supplier base is an institutional priority for ProMéxico. We cater to advanced-manufacturing industries such as aerospace, automotive and electronics, which usually share a supplier base. Mexican suppliers are evolving. Rather than catering to a single industry, they are supplying several and diversifying their portfolio. This is a positive step in the development of the country’s advanced-manufacturing industries. ProMéxico focuses on identifying the productive capacities of SMEs so they can join these industries’ supply chains and on raising Mexican content in these industries through business meetings focused on strategic industrial processes. Tooling is perhaps the area that offers the most opportunities. All industries need tooling solutions such as molds and dies but Mexico imports around US$2.6 billion in tooling annually and is the second-largest importer of molds worldwide.

The challenge for Mexican companies is to find ways to stand out and be recognized as reliable partners in automotive production.
