U.S. and European manufacturers are trending toward the Mexico interior cities of Monterrey, Queretaro, Chihuahua, and other Mexican off-border manufacturing locations according to a report from Mexico economic development group Mexicogov.org. The report pointed to better government incentive packages as one driver.
Another driver was lower labor costs. “Queretaro, Guadalajara, San Luis Potosi, and other locations have labor turnover rates a fraction of what is found in border cities like Juarez or Nuevo Laredo,” said Monica Gonzalez, an industrial real estate broker working in Queretaro, Monterrey, and Saltillo.
A third driver is reported to be the availability of international quality manufacturing buildings.
