Mexico: a country provider of engineering talent
Mexico City.- The process to assemble 17,000 pieces to create Ford Fiesta in Mexico is proof of the professional level of Mexican workers which, for Marcos Perez, Ford’s Chief Engineering Officer, are among the best trained in the world.
Members of a 2,000 people labor force, engineers from Ford’s assembly plant in Cuautitlan, State of Mexico have proved to be highly skilled through a “quite stringent” recruitment and screening system.
“Mexican engineers’ level is not short from anyone else’s in the world (…)” Marcos Perez assured.
Currently, one million 183 thousand engineers are working in Mexico; however, in order to meet labor demand, hiring rates in the sector should double in the next 10 years.
