MFG.com Announces Expansion of Marketplace in Mexico

World’s leading manufacturing marketplace opens new market

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MFG.com continues to expand its global presence with new representation in Mexico, as the manufacturing sector in that country continues to grow.

The MFG.com marketplace provides manufacturing members a steady stream of leads and prospective customers, opening up new opportunities and markets. This expansion also allows buying members to more readily source closer to the point of manufacture, assembly and distribution. Sourcing through MFG.com brings qualified and rated suppliers - saving money and improving sustainability. The MFG.com marketplace, consisting of hundreds-of-thousands of manufacturers and buyers, primarily focuses on products that must be made to engineering specifications. This is an ideal opportunity for manufacturers in Mexico to expand to other markets by using the MFG.com marketplace to find global opportunities.

"Our continued global expansion opens new markets for both buyers and sellers," said Mitch Free, CEO of MFG.com. "This is particularly important for our manufacturing members, who are looking to grow their business by exporting their goods to other countries."

Please join MFG.com for our first ever Manufacturing Connect Event to be held in Monterrey, Mexico, November 13, 2012 at Hotel Camino Real and meet the MFG.com team.
