We Find the Perfect Spot

Based on your company's industry, HR talent and logistics needs, we find the best site for your company to establish.

This is the beginning. If we want to start with the right foot, we have to set up the basis well. Weather you are a manufacturer or a services company it is essential to make a proper site selection for your operations to succeed. Mexico has several clusters and industrial hubs that could benefit your company and we want to make sure you land in the best one.

In order to get this this part right we have develop a step-by-step method that will ensure a successful start-op for your company.

Our Site Selection Methodology

Our Strategy Session

First things first. We have to sit down and have a Strategy Session. Don't worry, this is 100% free.

We first want to understand your company and be sure that moving operations to Mexico is something that fits your needs.

In this session, one of our business development reps will ask you a series of questions about your company, your industry and your overall operations. It doesn’t take more than 45 minutes to get all of the information we need.

The perfect spot depends pretty much on three main factors:

  1. Where your raw materials come from (if you are a manufacturer).
  2. Your company’s need for talented workforce in a special field. 
  3. Where your clients are located.


Our Site Selection Study

With the information gathered from your company we start researching the different regions to find the one that best suits your company's operations.

We then proceed to create a document including different potential locations for the project, with the advantages and disadvantages of each location clearly drawn up.

You can expect your document to include:

  1. The regions industrial and labor costs.
  2. Logistics Potential.
  3. Infrastructure.
  4. Access to technical schools.
  5. Government incentives.
  6. Political issues.
  7. Ports & airports in the region.

Our Loyalty Agreement

At this point it's very important for us to give you peace of mind and formalize our loyalty to our customers.

If everything seems right and you are ready to take the next step, we take the following actions:

  1. We sign an NDA together. This protects your delicate information.
  2. We sign a limited power of attorney. This allows Start-ops to act on behalf of your company in Mexico for a series of legal acts that will be needed.
  3. We open a Client Portal for you, where you will be able to follow the entire process real-time. This makes the process really transparent.

We Set-up The Real Estate

Once the site is chosen, we evaluate, negotiate and obtain the real estate that best suits your operations and we help you get everything installed so everything is up and running smoothly in your company's second home.

So we have chosen the best site for your company to start-ops. Great! Now we carry on to find the exact Real Estate location in which you will be performing you operations.

Depending on your industry you have special Real Estate needs like access to logistics infrastructure, space requirements et cetera. And, let’s face it, we all like to have a nice home. Your company’s home in Mexico shouldn’t be an exception.
