One of the world’s leading aerospace manufacturing companies, Southwest United  (SU) has begun to recognize the benefits of doing business in Mexico. CEO of Southwest United, Bill Emery claimed, “The infrastructure in Querétaro is every bit as good as in Oklahoma.” Southwest United has been in a business partnership with the Mexican aerospace manufacturing company Galnik since 2009 and ever since has seen considerable developments in their business infrastructure as a result of this alliance. Mexico’s aerospace manufacturing industry is growing at a fast rate because of its strong ties with the United States and Canada and its desirable geographical location for expansion.
In recent years, Mexico’s aerospace influence has increased significantly by 25%. Emery, in describing Southwest United’s decision to move into Mexico for production stated, “In Querétaro, the local government introduced us to Galnik, a family-owned business offering coatings to automotive and appliance manufacturers.” He went on to say in referring to Mexico’s aerospace development abilities, “They are as capable and comparable to engineers you will find in the U.S. or Canada.” Mexico has begun to become a hub for aerospace activity. In addition, Mexico’s emerging aerospace industry market  is an important occurrence for the country’s growing and modernizing economy.
