EMLinQ LLC is proud to announce the opening of their new production facility in Mexicali, Mexico
Mexicali- EMLinQ LLC has opened the doors to their second production factory, with a location in Mexicali, Mexico. With this new facility, EMLinQ will be able to offer its customers a premium value add solution for their high volume and labor intensive production needs by extending its footprint into lower cost territory. “Re-shoring” has brought skilled labor and high quality standards back to North America, and our Mexicali facility has benefited from this and the addition of a new team of EMS professionals.
The 25,000 square foot facility is outfitted with first-rate, new SMT equipment, including a Hitachi G4/G5 line and a highly specialized line that is capable of building 48” long PCBAs. Additional plans to offer new services are already in place and will be announced in due course.
“We are truly proud to be able offer our current customers, and new potential customers, a lower cost labor solution with our Mexicali facility. Our team spent over a year researching different states and countries to set up our second factory, and we are completely confident in the choice of Mexicali, Mexico. It is close to our US base, and fully connected to Simi Valley. We want to offer our customers all of the benefits of offshore labor pricing, with none of the headaches, and I am certain we can accomplish this.”- Sandro Aquilina, President/CEO of EMLinQ.
Manufacturing in Mexicali provides many advantages for our customers that do not exist with overseas production. Logistically speaking, the need and cost of ocean freighting finished goods is eliminated, and in many cases there will be little to no duties because of NAFTA. This new operation will enhance our ability to respond quickly to customer needs, while providing the benefits of comparable Asian cost structures, and simplifying the overall planning process. Our Mexicali facility is located close to the US border, and most importantly, it is in a similar time zone to most of our valued customers. This allows for real time engineering and quality solutions, as both plants engineers can easily be in contact, and could travel from one location to the other if needed. EMLinQ Simi Valley will continue to interface with our partners making the experience seamless for them.
EMLinQ LLC has been looking to transition into a multi facility company for quite some time, as to better serve customers throughout the country. With years of steady growth under its belt, and after several trips to different potential production sites, EMLinQ has found the right fit in our location to the south. We have been providing our customers with high quality, low/mid volume production since inception in 2007. Now, we are able to expand on that model by supplying you with our expertise and capabilities for large volume assemblies in Mexicali, as we continue our efforts to further expand EMLinQ’s North American presence.
