Case study: Increased protection with the inshoring model for manufacturing in Mexico
Increased protection with the inshoring model for manufacturing in Mexico
This California manufacturer of thermal insulation products needed to get a new production line up and running fast to meet a new contract deadline. The Baja California region in Mexico gave them quick access by car and a sustainable workforce for their 90+ person cut & sew operation.
Coming off an unfavorable experience with a contract manufacturer, our client prioritized the protection of their intellectual property. After analyzing different operational models to start up their project with Prodensa, our client chose the Inshoring Model. This provided them with a streamlined start up process with the application of proven best practices earned by Prodensa over nearly 40 years.
Inshoring provided our client a domestic manufacturing solution with risk-free access to the cost-benefits that Mexico provided for their manufacturing operation. They scaled up fast, and reached the first phase of planned capacity within 6 months of beneficial building occupancy. The Inshoring Model provided our client protection to their cash flow during the crucial ramp-up phase while allowing them to meet new contractual demands in the most agile way.
Founded in the 1950´s, this company wanted to be closer to its major client –for whom they wanted to provide battery cables and wiring harnesses for their tractor units. Now it was 2010 and a new generation of leaders needed a new location.
