The Tucson, Arizona-based Offshore Group has announced that it is now offering its comprehensive suite of Mexico outsourcing solutions in Mexico's second largest city, Guadalajara, Jalisco.
The Offshore Group is a leading provider of enterprise support, or 'shelter,' services. Since 1986, the company's Shelter Plan business model has been successfully applied to the Mexican manufacturing sector, and has enabled its client firms to initiate and maintain low-cost and low-risk manufacturing in Mexico operations at its gated and secured industrial parks in Guaymas and Empalme, Sonora, and, subsequently, in Saltillo, Coahuila. Going forward, The Offshore Group will make these services, as well as a similar program specifically designed for firms involved in call center, software development and business process activities, available to companies seeking to initiate and maintain these classes of operations in one of Latin America's most dynamic and business friendly cities through its Vangtel subsidiary.
According to The Offshore Group's President and CEO, Luis Felipe Seldner, 'Our organization is anticipating great success as we begin our activities in Guadalajara. The city has much to offer to global enterprises that are engaged in both manufacturing and service related endeavors as regards human resource availability and educational infrastructure, strategic location, market access and comparative cost advantage. We are especially grateful for the courtesy, support and assistance that have been forthcoming by the economic development authorities of the government of the State of Jalisco as we embark on this new venture.'
Guadalajara's economy is based on industry, especially electronics and information technology with a large number of international firms having manufacturing facilities in its metropolitan area. It is also rapidly becoming an international player in the biotech field. Foreign Direct Investment Magazine ranked Guadalajara second, behind only Chicago, for its North American economic potential in 2007.

Currently 60 companies are in operation at The Offshore Group's business locations in Mexico's state of Sonora and the city of Saltillo, Coahuila. Through its subsidiary firms, Vangtel and International Logistic Solutions, The Offshore Group also offers Mexico outsourcing support services to companies occupying the call center, IT development and BPO markets, as well as third-party logistics services to companies shipping both domestically and abroad.
