Tijuana is the epicenter for medical manufacturing


The access that the binational region gives benefits the economy, especially in the medical field where Tijuana has become the hub of innovation.

Medical devices are an important industry, not only because of the size of the global market but also because of the role it represents in healthcare worldwide.

When looking for a better place to grow your business, Mexico is the best option, according to Tijuana EDC. As for the cities, it is essential to get to know options and consider alternatives. Tijuana is the #1 city for medical device manufacturing in Mexico.

Although belonging to different countries, Tijuana (in Northern Mexico) is just minutes away from San Diego (in the U.S.). Due to this, and many more reasons, the experts agree that Tijuana is the medical device manufacturing capital, not only of Mexico but of North America.
It has more than 30 years of experience building the perfect environment to get infallible results. There are also 50+ medical device firms in the region, which has allowed them to achieve production with no precedent, compared to other countries and states.

According to a KPMG study in 2014, Mexico was ranked as one of the lowest-cost countries among 14 analyzed, and also provided more than 18.7% cost advantage compared to the U.S. and other countries in South America and Europe. As for Asian countries, Mexico’s costs were slightly higher than, for example, China; despite this, Tijuana’s nearshore location to the U.S. provides better logistics and quicker access to the West Coast, as well as several major international seaports and airports.

Tijuana’s medical device manufacturing offers a wide range of products, such as the following: dentures, electronic thermometers, hemodialysis components, infusion pumps, IV administration sets, lenses, nebulizers, orthopedic braces, oximeters, pacemakers, stent systems, surgical kits and equipment, urinary catheters, wheel chairs, x-ray film marking systems and much more.

In this city, companies are certified under ISO, FDA, and more international regulations and standards that maintain the quality of the final goods, as well as every step of the process. This also means that employees are used to maintaining a workflow under these guidelines. Tijuana’s workforce is very talented, careful, and more than qualified to get impeccable results.
