FAQs About Manufacturing Appliances in Mexico

Does the appliance manufacturing industry in Mexico have crossover with any other clusters?

Appliance manufacturing in Mexico benefits from the country’s success in electronics manufacturing. Many of the household items produced also include electrical products or have electrical capabilities. Because the appliance and electronic industries work hand in hand, supply and labor costs are often lower. This creates mutual advantages and an ideal production environment for the appliance manufacturing industry.


Is there an appliance manufacturing cluster in Mexico and should I locate my facility there?

Nuevo Leon is one of the strongest regions for appliance manufacturing and employs 22 percent of Mexico's direct electrical appliance workforce. Nuevo Leon is home to many home appliance brands, and the appliances are shipped across the world to their intended market. The region is also home to CLELAC (the Nuevo Leon Home Appliances Cluster), which brings together a group of industry, academia, and government entities to bolster Mexico's appliance manufacturing sector. However, many Tier 1, 2, and 3 appliance manufacturing companies choose to locate their maquiladoras in Saltillo, which is only about an hour away from Monterrey but has wages that are 15 to 20 percent lower. Appliance-makers and their suppliers can also be found throughout the country, with significant manufacturers located in Coahuila, Chihuahua, Mexico City, Guanajuato, Queretaro, and San Luis Potosi, and Tamaulipas.
