  MANUFACTURING PLAN OPTIONS - DEFINITIONS


THE THREE MOST POPULAR PLANS:

 
  Contract Manufacturing

An existing Mexican company manufactures products to your specifications and ships the finished products back to your Company, billing you on a pre-arranged piece-price basis. In some cases, your Company can also provide the necessary component parts on consignment, paying only for the cost of labor to assemble those components into your Company's product. Contract Manufacturing is the easiest way to "test the waters" with least amount of commitment and exposure.

 
  Direct Ownership

Your company sets up its own Mexican company and runs it just as you would one of your own divisions. Often times, this can be too much for a company to take on, at least as an initial experience with Mexico.

 
  Shelter Plan

Under this plan, an existing Mexican company provides the administrative support services (i.e. Personnel, payroll, customs documentation for importing and exporting, etc.) but your company is in charge of running the production floor. This plan allows you to focus on manufacturing while being "sheltered" from the red tape.


 
  OTHER PLANS:

 
  Incubator

 
  Joint Venture
