WHMA Webinar – Wire Harness Assembly in Mexico – What are you waiting for?

September 27, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

WHMA Supplier Entrada Group

Mexico is the smartest and most cost-competitive location in North America for wire harness assembly.

But there is a catch.

If you don’t already have an assembly operation in Mexico, setting one up on your own can be risky, as well as time- and resource-intensive. Labor costs in Mexico are rising too. So the location you select is more important than ever.

Join us for a session designed for wire harness execs and company owners as we explore one key question: How and where do you setup, launch and optimize your own Mexico wire harness operation without too much cost and risk?

We’ll explore the benefits of launching your first Mexico assembly facility, as well as the advantages of doing so with an experienced Mexico manufacturing partner like Entrada Group, which has been guiding wire harness producers to success in Mexico for over 20 years. We’ll also cover the importance of professional development for your workforce, to ensure skills are current.

In this session, we’ll examine:

  • Mexico as the solution to your wire harness labor shortage
  • Why labor in Mexico is still cost-competitive, even though wage levels are rising
  • Integrating IPC certifications into your wire harness facility for Continuous Improvement
  • Why more OEMs are requiring IPC certifications
  • How Entrada Group enables quick entry into Mexico with less long-term risk

Inflation and rising wages are affecting Mexico, just like everywhere else. But Mexico’s long-term strengths still make it an excellent location for wire harness assembly, due to favorable demographics. We’ll show you how our clients have leveraged Mexico’s strengths for topline growth, despite today’s challenging economic realities.
