Mexico is a great alternative to Asia supply chain partners and offers some great values.
We started to develop factory partners in Mexico in 2015, and we are very fortunate to have found some great families to do business with.
Shorter lead times and competitive prices make these factories great supply chain partners.
One factory is 5 hours from the U.S. border making approx. 5-7 trucks per month for us now of unfinished cabinet doors, drawer fronts and face frames made from Beech and Soft Maple. Any USA hardwood is available to us from their factory considering their proximity to the border.
The other factory is a great family owned company making Rubber wood drawer parts. The Rubber wood is harvested from their sustainable 7,000 acre Rubber wood plantation forest. They will have a new factory ready in July just to make Rubber wood drawer parts.
