Mexicali Supply Expo 2014 Slated to Attract Suppliers to Thriving Manufacturing Region

MEXICALI, Mexico, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A coalition of Mexican public and private sector organizations dedicated to regional economic development, announced the 2014 Mexicali Supply Expo to be held February 27, 2014, at Palaco Industrial Park in Mexicali, just across the border from El Centro, California.

Now in its fourth year, showcasing the over $350 million dollars in business done annually in components in the region, the Expo is designed to connect international companies with manufacturing operations in Mexicali to component suppliers seeking new market potential. The Expo features exhibitors in the aerospace, metal mechanic, medical devices, automotive, electronics and plastics industry. Participants to date include: Bosch, Emerson, Gulfstream, Honeywell, Kenworth, Skyworks, and United Technologies among others.

"It's important for us to create a smooth path between successful corporations that are already manufacturing in our region, and American suppliers who are considering tapping into the tremendous potential this market has to offer," said Alfredo Garcia, President of the Supply Expo committee. "This event helps manufacturers expand their supply chain and gives suppliers the network and resources they want."

Mexicali, Mexico, is a long established center for nearshore manufacturing with over 500 national and international companies operating with access to a total labor pool of over 360,000 people in the area. With more companies now seeking to remain competitive in today's global market, and others leaving traditional offshore locations in China and India, Mexicali is seeing a new surge in manufacturing growth.

People who want to attend the Expo and get a feel for what the area has to offer can register at www.mexicalisupply.com and receive an event pass free of charge. The Expo will feature educational and business sessions including B-2-B intensive networking sessions between pre-qualified manufacturers and compatible suppliers.
