Mexico’s Automotive Supply Chain and Opportunities for Suppliers

Mexico’s Automotive Supply Chain and Opportunities for Suppliers

Temel Gaskets manufactures parts for clients worldwide with North America being one of our largest markets. Mexico is our fastest growing region for OEM and Aftermarket parts. We have employees that conduct business in Spanish and travel throughout North and Central America. While we understand the opportunity that Mexico presents to automotive manufacturers, we would like to highlight this potential market.

AftermarketNewsGlobal.com recently featured an audio interview with Ms. Alba Peña, VP Sourcing & Supply Chain for Grupo Prodensa. During this 11-minute interview, we learn the in’s and out’s of Mexico’s supply chain from someone with over 17 years of experience developing the supply chain for international companies looking to take advantage of this opportunity, We published a blog post in both English and Spanish that highlights key facts from this interview.

Mexico is one of the most attractive markets for automotive companies in the world, and on August 16th, 2016, The Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA) is hosting Mexico – The Myths, The Realities, and The Opportunities at the MSU Management Education Center in Troy, Michigan. This event focuses on opportunities and lessons learned on what it takes to be successful in Mexico.

Earlier this year, we published a blog post that highlights some travel tips for those of you traveling to Automechanika Mexico City. Whether visiting for business or a personal vacation, these tips below can help make your next trip go as smooth as possible.

Taxi’s

If you are traveling by air, you will probably fly into the Mexico City-Benito Juarez International airport. At the end of the terminal, immediately before the exit, you will find booths for taxi companies.

Traffic

Traffic is denser during the morning before 10 am and after 5. We suggest adding at the least 30 minutes to your estimates for travel time.

Business Interactions

In Mexico, cordiality and informality blend together to create a favorable business climate. For this reason, it is important to talk briefly about family, current events, and other issues before starting a business conversation.
