Gaining Altitude: Aerospace industry report by Crossborder Group shows 7,300+ employees in Tijuana
FACT: there are 29 aerospace industry firms operating in the City of Tijuana, Baja California.
FACT: based on a company survey of each of those 29 firms, Crossborder Group found average Q2-2011 employment totaling 7,313 workers, making Tijuana the Mexican city with the largest number of aerospace cluster employees within 400 miles of the US-Mexico border.
These are just two of the many findings in a recent aerospace industry white paper developed by Crossborder Group for the City of Tijuana Economic Development Corporation (DEITAC) and released at this year’s Paris Air Show by DEITAC and Baja California business and economic leaders. As with most of Crossborder’s business projects, the research team reaches out to regional leaders within an industry: in this case, getting feedback and data from aerospace company representatives at Eaton, Zodiac, Parker, Suntron, and others currently operating in Tijuana.
While confirming data about an industry in Mexico can often take dozens (or hundreds!) of phone calls, emails and interviews with companies, agencies, and trade organizations, Crossborder Group rose the challenge and recently completed the report: “For High Altitude Profits, Companies Land in Tijuana“. This report elevates Crossborder Group’s growing portfolio of technology and industry reports that underscore the great potential that exists to grow tech industries that leverage the strengths of North America’s NAFTA partners: the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.
