The eighth edition of the Mexicali Supply Expo 2018 will take place on Thursday, February 22, at the “El Dorado” Industrial Park, located at km 4 of the Mexicali – San Felipe highway.
According to the president of the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (Canacintra) in Mexicali, José Eugenio Lagarde Amaya, the Mexicali Supply Expo was a request from the entrepreneurs of the sector, who for 8 years have been participating.
“What is sought in an essential way is to integrate the tractor companies, the large companies, with the medium-sized companies and local smaller companies here in Mexicali,” he said.
With this event, a greater integration of suppliers among different companies is expected, since the levels of integration between the local industry and the “large” industries are barely 4%.
In the case of Mexicali, this figure is reduced to around 2 or 3% as a maximum, although Lagarde Amaya affirmed that there is a large area of opportunity in the subject.
The Mexicali Supply Expo 2018 will also have the participation of Canacintra Mexicali, the Association of Maquiladoras of Mexicali (Index) and the Industrial Development Commission of Mexicali, as well as local, national and international supplying and manufacturing companies .
At the moment 140 stands have been confirmed on the exhibition floor composed of suppliers and buyers of different industrial sectors, as well as a series of conferences with topics of interest and a session of business meetings where the purchasing companies and suppliers are expected to come into contact .
The event will take place at “El Dorado” Industrial Park, that is located on Km. 4 of the Mexicali – San Felipe highway, on Thursday Feb. 22, and will last from 9:00 in the morning to 5:00 in the afternoon.
