More from the Whitepaper
Today, more than 7,000 people are employed in wire harness manufacturing for over a dozen companies in the state of Zacatecas alone. This access to and abundance of affordable labor gives central Mexico a pronounced advantage over not only American and Canadian production locations, but also over other regions of Mexico.
What few know, however, is that Mexico’s hourly labor costs for fully loaded direct workers—who typically are working a wire harness manufacturing line— are a fraction of prevailing rates in the U.S. and Canada.
This whitepaper looks at the cost pressures faced by all wire harness manufacturers in the U.S. and Canada, highlighting in particular the experiences of four wire harness assembly clients operating at the Entrada Group campus. Each of the four turned to Entrada Group for their own nearshore Mexican production and experienced business growth throughout the years.
