Yesterday we had the distinct pleasure of hosting the Board of Directors of the Asociación de Maquiladoras de Sonora (Manufacturers of Sonora, Mex.) in our Executive Suites Boardroom. The group’s Executive Director, Jesus Montoya of INDEX Nogales, was complimentary of our building and Suites, noting:
“We appreciate the kind hospitality we received from The Americas Trade Center’s partners, and the opportunity to meet privately in a comfortable and productive setting.” In fact, several in the group inquired about the possibility of leasing Suites for meetings with their U.S.-side colleagues.
The Association represents all export-oriented manufacturing operations in the state of Sonora, principally located in Nogales, Agua Prieta, San Luis Rio Colorado, Hermosillo and Empalme. The industry represents an estimated annual payroll of $700 million and over $20 billion of imports and exports between Sonora and the United States. They manufacture products from simple wire harnesses and doors to automobiles and sophisticated avionic components.

Thank you to Jesus and his Association members for having your meeting with us, and hope to welcome you back very soon!
