The productivity offered by Nuevo Laredo workers and speed in imports and exports have been key factors for the industrial development of this border city.
Luis Perez-Benitez, Chairman of the Committee for Nuevo Laredo’s Industrial Development, Comite para el Desarrollo Industrial de Nuevo Laredo (Codein), said that these qualities offered by Nuevo Laredo to companies are among the reasons why two maquiladoras are planning expansions, generating more than 600 jobs.
One of them is the cosmetics maquiladora plant established last year in Oradel Industrial Park, which is currently hiring. While Delphi will complete its expansion in October, generating around 600 new jobs.
“A maquiladora plant devoted to cosmetic products opened this year in Oradel Park, generating around 100 jobs and I think they have been increasing their labor force for a few days now; the company is operating well.
“As far as Delphi is concerned, the increase in the number of jobs will be around 600, but we do not know for certain what will be done yet”, he said.
Another company planning to invest in this border city and which will generate 200 new jobs is related to air conditioning industry.
“It is a company related to air conditioning industry; it may generate around 200 jobs to begin with, with expansions some six to twelve months after starting operations. They should make a decision by October and let us know if they are investing here”, he added.

Localising leadership requires overcoming cultural conditioning in certain Asian cultures that may, in certain circumstances, be a hindrance to upward mobility in large global organisations, but organisations that are cultivating local management in the region seldom regret it.
