The Hub Manufacturing Partners program seeks to leverage existing Paso del Norte regional opportunities, competencies, capabilities and interest in the manufacturing of new technology products. Anecdotal and empirical evidence both suggest a huge opportunity for our region to become the destination of choice for small and medium sized manufacturers of all types. Thus, this program connects the various parts of the manufacturing infrastructure (including the maquilas on the Mexican side of our region) with Hub client companies looking to begin, expand or re-locate manufacturing.
The specific objectives are to identify existing businesses and institutions willing and able to:
- Produce varying quantities of manufactured products from test batches to fully scaled production
- Work with small, emerging companies
- Consider partnerships or joint ventures for the manufacturing of products
- Participate in joint marketing and promotion of manufacturing products and services
The Hub has compiled and maintains a list of partners and their manufacturing capabilities. As Hub clients have products ready for production The Hub takes the lead in informing partners of the manufacturing opportunities and will facilitate the connections between Hub clients and partners as necessary. At all times the Hub will seek to facilitate introductions and the exchange of information in as fast and efficient a manner as possible, while meeting good business practices.
This program is a guide to assist entrepreneurs in identifying manufacturing resources in the region and is provided for information purposes only and does not constitute advice.
