Juan Luis Tarin is Director of Business Development at Smartsol Technologies and it would be hard to do his job without knowing what’s going on in the industry, that’s why I wanted to chat with him. What is really cool is that Juan Luis isn’t just about anecdotes and feedback from his substantial customer facing team, he’s also about research and hard data!
In this insightful interview I speak in detail with Juan Luis about how they gather this data and what this data is telling us about the key trends driving the Mexico EMS sector right now. I learned a lot, not least that the product mix is changing in Mexico and more consumer product, or retail product as Juan Luis prefers to define it, is being manufactured. What’s more, a lot of those entering or expanding in Mexico are the major Asian, specifically Taiwanese, players we are familiar with.
