Nearshoring to Mexico
Nearshoring: ¡Vamos a México!

Driven by federal incentives, geopolitical risk and pandemic aftershocks, reshoring and nearshoring continue apace. For manufacturers compressing supply chains, nearshoring to our southern neighbor provides a comfortable, cost-effective option. Companies of all size are feeling the pull – even 88% of small and medium sized businesses are “reshuffling their supply chains” to use more U.S. and Mexican suppliers this year. Chinese manufacturers are also opening factories in Mexico to better serve the U.S. market.

If “Vamos a México” is on your company’s strategic plan, Kormac can help. Our senior operational experts have diverse experience designing, launching and operating manufacturing facilities south of the border. Our team’s experiences include:
