Make business connections in Mexico!

Let Automation Alley help your company boost its global competitiveness and expand into the world’s second-largest market for U.S. exports. We invite you to join Automation Alley’s Trade Mission to Mexico, a nation with an especially strong demand for the following Michigan-made products, services and technologies:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Design, engineering and manufacturing services
  • Cleantech/environmental
  • IT and information communication technologies
  • Medical

Matchmaking meetings will place your company directly in touch with potential end users, distributors, joint-venture partners, technology licensees and key players that you need to know to successfully do business in Mexico.

Why Mexico?

  • Mexico is Latin America’s second-largest economy and world’s eleventh most populous nation.
  • Mexico’s free trade agreements with 45 countries spanning three continents provide U.S. companies with preferential access to an additional one billion consumers equaling 60 percent of global GDP.
  • Among the world’s leading manufacturing powerhouses, Mexico’s competitive advantages include a highly-skilled yet low-wage workforce, excellent product quality, geographic proximity to the U.S. and inexpensive transportation costs.
  • Wide gaps in Mexico’s major industrial and manufacturing supply chains offer U.S. companies enormous opportunities to fill
  • As the world’s fourth-largest auto exporter, production of cars and light trucks in Mexico will continue at rapid speed (3 million units today to 4 million in 2017) as foreign auto makers continue to invest in new plants and capacity to meet rising global demand, according to the Wall Street Journal.
