Industry-led Website for Baja California’s Expanding Aerospace Industry Launched at International Conference
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2006
At an international aerospace conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, today, John Riley, CEO of San Diego-based BC Manufacturing USA, announced the launch of BajaAerospace.org — an industry-led informational website created to attract even more attention to the growing number of aerospace companies operating in Baja California, Mexico. “From our perspective, the transformation that’s occurring in Baja California and several other regions in Mexico for aerospace suppliers and major manufacturers has finally reached a critical mass, and we want the world to know about it,” said Riley.
Several key topics covered by this industry-led effort include:
Detailed information from the Baja California and Mexican Federal governments on aerospace industry investments in Mexico;
Profiles and contacts for aerospace industry companies currently operating in Baja California; and,
Updated information about ongoing talks between the United States and Mexico to negotiate a Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement (BASA) that will allow Mexico-based companies to produce safety-certified components for U.S. aerospace manufacturers.
“Nearly half of Mexico’s aerospace-related companies are in Baja California, and between existing efforts of the State and Federal governments, as well as regional universities on both sides of the border, it only makes sense to create a one-stop shop for aerospace information about what’s going on just minutes below Southern California,” said Ricardo Dominguez, BC Manufacturing USA’s aerospace division manager, and a key force in developing the BajaAerospace.org website. Dominguez explained, “Our goal is to help change perceptions within the aerospace industry about what can be done in Baja California, and launching BajaAerospace.org is one way to do that.”
