How do you approach and execute your strategy for expanding your business into Mexico?

Whether you have just started thinking about expanding your manufacturing services into Mexico or are already there, you understand the importance of a sound operations strategy for implementation. The reasoning behind your operations strategy and the details of your plan will be unique to your business processes, and you know your manufacturing business well. But you need to know just as much about Mexico to make the right decisions for your operations, and you may also need guidance to help implement your plan once you have a manufacturing strategy. Where do you find the right consulting advisors who can help gather the data you need or support your solutions and drive results?

What kind of manufacturing and supply chain services Advisor do you need?

Knowing how to choose the right industry consulting business can be a challenge. Manufacturers want consultants who can provide value, create new opportunities, and offer tools to improve your industrial manufacturing processes. To help you and other manufacturers with this process, here is a list of factors you should consider when selecting a consulting firm.

Knowledgeable Across Operations: You want a consulting business with a complete understanding of manufacturing and operating in Mexico. You want to avoid coordinating multiple domain experts from different manufacturing consulting firms. A single manufacturing consultant organization that has a deep understanding of operating in Mexico will be able to respond flexibly to your business needs while keeping your organization’s bigger picture clearly in focus. You will want a consulting firm that has the talent necessary to help with everything from supply chain and advanced production to financial services and deciding where to locate Mexican offices and manufacturing facilities.

Experts at Both Strategy and Implementation: Providing industry advice is helpful but implementation in global manufacturing is critical. A consulting expert that can do not just one, but both, gives you the opportunity to seamlessly transition from information gathering through planning to implementation with the same trusted consultants, without the need for re-education which can cause delays and miscommunication when creating business strategy. These comprehensive services streamline your processes and can simplify your strategy approach.

Trustworthy and Capable: There are many reliable and competent individuals and manufacturing consulting services in Mexico. But there are also some manufacturing consultants who are incompetent, unscrupulous or worse. Being able to tell the difference between consulting services can be difficult and recovering from a mistake using the Mexican legal system can be a lengthy and difficult process. You need to be confident that your chosen consultants are honest, capable and can deliver on their commitments. Manufacturers can find trustworthy consulting services by evaluating the firm's performance and meeting with the firm's leaders. Choose services that have experience in your industry, offer new opportunities and solutions, and know how to drive results.
