Competitiveness relies on the development of the supply chain, as well as supporting certification processes and providing workshops on compliance. This support is of the utmost importance because we had noticed that some small and midsized companies were unaware of the proper practices regarding this subject so we are working to help them improve. One of our main goals is to help local and foreign companies interested in entering the Mexican market to join forces and strengthen the supply chain with the least possible risk.

Kaeser Compresores de México

Our engineering team evaluates each client’s needs to determine the appropriate compressor and system for them. Kaeser Compresores prides itself on its customer service. Our 24-hour support, 365 days a year as an important factor in our success. If a machine breaks down, we can temporarily substitute it so production is not affected. The main benefits we provide customers is access to our large inventory and excellent personnel. As the state continues growing, it will have to address a lack of sufficient personnel. Personnel retention as well as adjusting to new generational needs is of extreme importance as the more facilities you have the less qualified workers are available. There is a fight for good personnel. New facilities are hiring engineers at 15 percent higher salaries or more than their current employees.

To ensure the continuous growth of both sectors, solutions to train and retain these personnel must become a priority

The consolidation of the supply chain is a priority. At this point, Mexican companies need to focus on increasing their presence and incorporation into the sector, not just at a local level but also in the US and Canada. It is common for companies to only want to enter the local supply chain but a large percentage of the sector is based north of the border. With the necessary certifications, technology and expertise, those companies could enter supply chains in other countries. Our main goal is to help the industry grow through the consolidation of its supply chain. FEMIA also promotes the sector locally and internationally and gives its members the opportunity to enter this supply chain network, which will facilitate their operations in the country. One of our main goals is to help local and foreign companies interested in entering the Mexican market to join forces and strengthen the supply chain.

What steps must be taken to improve the industry's supply chain?
