Saltillo is racing Queretaro to attract a potential automotive investment, which could generate 600 positions and for which 3 acres would be required for its installation. The tax incentives offered to the company will determine the agreement.
Alberto Covarrubias Manrique, an Offshore Group Associate, pointed out that they have been working on this investment (metal-mechanic and welding sector) during the last year. Due to the size of the company, its installation is offered elsewhere outside the Industrial Park La Angostura, specifically in the areas that The Offshore Group has in the Derramadero zone. Zapa executives are negotiating this project, expecting to concrete the investment within the next months. However, the company also evaluates Queretaro. The state which facilitates tax exemptions will be regarded as a better option.
