I would like to add that Mexico has a large variety of contract manufacturing companies that are worth looking at. I will use my company as an example of the advantages to working with a company that is commercially based in USA and manufactures in Mexico. Please keep in mind these advantages could apply to other types of CMs as well!

Being commercially run from San Diego, CA and manufacturing in Tijuana, Mexico gives us distinct advantages over Asia:
-Labor costs and currency rates stable in Mexico. Constantly increasing overseas. -We ship out of San Diego giving us much lower freight charges -We allow higher flexibility in shipment schedules. We can accommodate shipments 1/week vs 1/month often seen overseas. This can help keep your inventory down. -Gauranteed better payment terms and flexibility-You will benefit from better communication and higher customer service. -We can do high and low volume at a high volume rate-We keep more business in America (ie: component purchasing, logistics, engineering, sales)-Much lower risk of counterfeit threats
I encourage everyone to keep this in mind when searching for your next contract manufacturer. Working with a US based company with manufacturing in Mexico has numerous advantages! Let me know if you have any questions!
Best of luck!
