JUÁREZ PRODUCTION SHARING

The production-sharing strategy has made Cd. Juárez a globally competitive manufacturing center. Production sharing allows companies the efficient economic advantage of producing a component, subassembly or finished product by locating production facilities in close proximity to one another. Companies have the potential to build a vertically integrated manufacturing presence in the region by placing capital-intensive component manufacturing in El Paso and final assembly in Cd. Juárez. 

Our region is one of the largest manufacturing centers in North America, with more than 230,061 persons in manufacturing. The vast majority are engaged in production sharing for such industries as automotive parts, medical devices, consumer products, electric motors, electronic components and more. Possessing the largest bilingual and bicultural workforce in the Western Hemisphere* has contributed to our region’s success in production sharing.
