Shared Services Center | Driving efficiencies. Optimizing growth.

We know you need to control costs as you face increasing competition. Entrada’s on-site Shared Services Center in Mexico allows you to reduce and control indirect costs, both overhead and administrative, by leveraging costs and economies of scale. We offer shared services for your Mexico manufacturing operation, typically only afforded to large companies.

The division of labor allows you to concentrate on your core business and build production teams that focus on the Mexican manufacturing operation’s productivity rather than being distracted by or investing in key local production support services.

Our highly experienced, exceedingly professional support personnel is now 200 people strong. At our Shared Services Center, they handle all the critical manufacturing support and administrative functions—which provide you with the breadth and capabilities of a much larger staff at a cost that you could not attain on your own.

Even if your Mexico manufacturing operation will only require a dedicated workforce of 50-100, you will enjoy the leverage of a 4,000-person operation because Entrada’s clients are all located in one of our two manufacturing campuses in Mexico.
