The Operation



Skill Ranking

A number of larger maquilas have located in the Cd. Chihuahua area since 1989, many of which provide additional training for the local workforce. Cd. Chihuahua has been an alternative destination for maquila operators who require access to the crossings in El Paso / Juarez, but wish to locate away from the border. The aggregate skill level will increase as more maquilas in the electronics business located there.

Education and Training

A number of training schools exist in Cd. Chihuahua, including a state university from which 40% of the region's students graduate.

Turnover Rates

In general terms, turnover is moderate in Cd. Chihuahua because of a smaller labor pool and fewer choices for workers to find other job sites. Some plants within walking distance of housing areas experience lower turnover rates than those located in business parks that require workers to make lengthy bus transfers. Turnover rate estimates typically run 8% - 12% per month.

Infrastructure

Exceptional highway to the northern border crossings in Cd. Juarez. Electricity, water and gas available at all industrial parks.

Customs

US Customs processes commercial traffic from Cd. Chihuahua at the El Paso / Juarez crossing, and a small portion through the Ojinaga crossing for shipments destined to central Texas cities.

Taxes

Maquila employers pay State of Chihuahua taxes in the amount of 3.5% - 5.0% of base salaries.
