This visit by CPI to Arizona was organized to showcase a dynamic Aerospace & Defense manufacturing industry with more than 1,200 A&D companies. More importantly, pre-arranged meetings with local industry leaders and tours of several high-tech facilities presented ideal opportunities to demonstrate the fact that CPI and its customers in the shelter program in Tijuana are not a separate part of production but that we are all part of the same manufacturing process and supply chain.

This visit by CPI to Arizona was organized to showcase a dynamic Aerospace & Defense manufacturing industry with more than 1,200 A&D companies. More importantly, pre-arranged meetings with local industry leaders and tours of several high-tech facilities presented ideal opportunities to demonstrate the fact that CPI and its customers in the shelter program in Tijuana are not a separate part of production but that we are all part of the same manufacturing process and supply chain.

Aerospace Arizona Members and others in the aerospace and tech industries learned the benefits of using CPI’s manufacturing facility to grow their businesses. The seminar and workshop was a great opportunity for these businesses to learn and discuss manufacturing with CPI President Enrique Esparza and representatives Veronica Contreras, VP Marketing and Sales and Denisse Martinez, Marketing Director.

CPI builds partnerships with companies by providing a facility that enables expansion of manufacturing capabilities. They handle the complete set-up of the new plant and manage the day-to-day administrative duties in accordance with Mexican regulations allowing the company to control and focus 100 percent on manufacturing. Attendees of the lunchtime seminar got to learn in detail how production with a manufacturing shelter works and how it can benefit startups to large organizations.

“Arizona’s technological advancements in additive manufacturing and engineering simulation techniques represent the upstream effort in a supply chain that has Mexican companies manufacturing the products downstream”, said Moses Koyabe, Advisory Board Member and Vice President of the Arizona Chapter for Unmanned Systems. With this understanding, several notable discussions during the Wednesday luncheon and the visits at the ASU Poly Campus and PADT on Thursday allowed the CPI delegation to get a better idea of possible synergies and business partnerships.

The second day of the trip featured tours of Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus in Mesa and Phoenix Analysis & Design Technologies headquarters in Tempe. CPI ended the 2-day visit on a very positive note with commitments to pursue cross-border discussions with Arizona business leaders covering additive manufacturing, unmanned systems and fostering exchanges between ASU Poly Campus and university institutions in Tijuana.

Several more events are in the forecast for Aerospace Arizona Association and its members in 2017 such as the 2nd Annual Arizona UAS Summit in November and future industry trade trips will strengthen the growing ties between Arizona and Tijuana.
