MSG Alliance Specific City Site Selection Studies

If your company has already narrowed down the search to a specific city in Mexico we identify all location possibilities including raw land to improve, land with existing infrastructure to construct a facility, existing available buildings, and build to suit for lease opportunities.

Then we compare costs, timing, logistic considerations, labor proximity, utility infrastructure costs & timing, environmental considerations and other city and site-specific factors to enable an informed site decision for your manufacturing startup or expansion in Mexico.
