PROJECT TIMELINE
This is a brief outline of a typical project.

  • Information Request: Within 48 hours of registering online or calling our office in El Paso, Texas, one of our market specialists will personally contact you. We will discuss why you are looking at Mexico, what information you require and how we can be of assistance. We will issue you a login name and a password to access all features of our website.
  • Preliminary Investigation: When we have a better understanding of your project, a dedicated team member will prepare a base report addressing the key areas of the operation – wages, utility costs, facility options, etc. This report and subsequent modifications and additions will be the foundation for determining if this is a project that warrants more resources, both from the client and TeamNAFTA.com.
  • Site Selection: If the preliminary report positively addresses your goals in Mexico, we will explore specific locations and how they can benefit or detract from the project. This stage involves looking at supplier requirements, transportation issues, labor factors and potential clients in Mexico. The goal is to put the basic data to work in selecting alternative locations in Mexico and further developing the case for relocating to Mexico.
  • Ground Visit: With a site selection report in place, we will travel with you in Mexico and facilitate on-the-ground research. Over a couple of days, we will visit with local government and economic development agencies, potential suppliers, law firms, customs brokers, tour potential facilities and meet with local companies currently in operation to gain an insider’s view of the area and opportunities.
  • Final Report: With the materials from the trip in place, we will address any remaining questions and assist in the preparation of a final report to be submitted to the company’s decision makers for approval. This will involve detailed discussions with:
    • Lawyers regarding incorporation and permit process as well as tax and other legal issues
    • Transportation companies and customs brokers to layout how your product will be moved in and out of Mexico
    • Suppliers, in both Mexico and the U.S., to make sure your component and raw material needs can be met
    • Landowners and developers to discuss facility options
  • Active Project: Once the approval is given to move forward, we will guide you through the start-up process with the direct involvement of TeamNAFTA.com's tenant representation team handling the real estate negotiations.
