Manufacturing in Mexico Events to be Hosted this Fall by The Offshore Group

Initiating and maintaining nearshore production facilities will be the subject of two Mexico manufacturing events to be hosted this fall by The Offshore Group

Manufacturing in Guadalajara 2012 will take place from September 18th - 20th at the Fiesta Americana Grand Hotel in the business-friendly city of Guadalajara, Jalisco. Attendees at the event will be introduced to the strategic and economic advantages that accrue to companies that choose to manufacture in what is one of Latin America's most vibrant, cosmopolitan and well-situated cities. Companies that locate in Guadalajara are well-positioned to export their wares to the U.S. and Canada, as well as to access important markets further south. The focus of the program is the electronics industry.

The 18th Annual Manufacturing in Mexico Summit will be held at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel in San Carlos Sonora, Mexico from October 25th - 26th. The Summit is the longest running maquiladora industry conference, and provides a forum at which executives interested in establishing and maintaining low-cost production facilities in Mexico can gain valuable information and insight in an abbreviated time frame. San Carlos is a retirement/resort community located on the Sea of Cortez, and is a short distance from The Offshore Group's Bella Vista and Roca Fuerte industrial parks.

One of the study’s leading contributors, Karl Haapala, an OSU assistant professor of industrial and manufacturing engineering, talks about what the study found, the dynamic nature of sustainability, and how manufacturers today are currently approaching it.
