July 31, 2012

With worldwide presence at the 2012 Farnborough International Air Show, exhibitors attracted further interest in aerospace and defense manufacturing in Mexico. The six Mexican States with the largest Industry presence were: Baja California, Chihuahua, Jalisco, Nuevo Leon, Queretaro and Sonora. The presence of ProMexico and other Economic Development agencies enabled companies to further understand Mexico’s strengths and weaknesses.

Scott Stanley, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for North American Production Sharing (NAPS), attended the show and agreed it had a positive impact for Mexico.

Upon returning from the show, he shared the following insight: “The volume of upper-level management from multinational aerospace firms visiting Mexico’s pavilion at the show this summer, clearly demonstrates the country’s continued strength in attracting quality companies from the aerospace industry.” NAPS manages over 40 manufacturing operations from its corporate headquarters in Tijuana, working in a variety of industries, including aerospace.

Mexico continues to consolidate its position as a key player in the global aerospace industry, employing 31,000 skilled employees and exporting in excess of 4 billion dollars in 2010. The industry is projected to export 12.26 billion dollars in 2012.
