Aerospace innovation in Mexico
At the beginning of 2016 there were 270 aerospace companies in Mexico with 80% focused on manufacturing, 10% performed repairs, and the remaining 10% developed new ideas. Production plants for these aerospace companies continue to use the latest technology from 3D printing and mobile data collection, to the design of aerospace materials that are both strong and light. Innovation is present in all aspects of Mexican aerospace manufacturing as new technologies are integrated into sensitive equipment that can match specifications to the smallest degree. These modern processes produce high quality products with very little waste.
