Mexico has strong capabilities working with sheet metal and performing traditional assembly, especially with aluminum. We are good manufacturers of CPUs and harnesses and we are developing skills to manufacture more composite parts. Moreover, Mexico has capabilities for MRO services, with ventures from Mexicana MRO and TechOps Mexico, making the country a destination for MRO. This trend is leading other states to develop their own workshops. Our expectation for 2017 is to reach 60,000 jobs, to have 330 industrial facilities, to surpass US$8 billion in exports and to reach a 23 percent trade surplus with the US for aerospace products. Globally, Mexico is ranked 14th for competitive manufacturing platforms and our goal is to be in the top 10 by 2020.

Mexico is the 14th-biggest aerospace supplier in the world, but the country has high ambitions.
