The center of the country is today one of the most dynamic and attractive locations for investors in Mexico. Among the conditions that position the Bajío as a strategic region with competitive advantages for the industrial sector are the logistical facilities, trained and sufficient labor force, and the necessary resources within reach to operate any type of company.
In this sense, accessibility stands out, since its geographic location in the Mexican territory implies a direct connection between North America and Central America, and due to its high connectivity, it also presents the opportunity to transport inputs directly as well as to export at low cost by different means: road, air, sea or railroad.
Currently, the Bajío is recognized as one of the most attractive regions for companies seeking to grow and establish themselves in one of the industrial corridors where all the necessary means for their operation converge; its manufacturing potential is continuously growing, attracting the attention of major brands and attracting foreign investment.
However, this expansion and the wide variety of options available in terms of industrial parks in the region, make the decision of where to take your company more difficult. You need to analyze which one is the most convenient for your company, which adapts to your needs, has the best location and offers you the best benefits to establish your company. In addition, it must be up to date with the new regulations, updated in technologies, and cover the best practices in terms of infrastructure quality, safety and sustainability.
San Miguel de Allende: the new industrial paradise
Mexico’s strategic location, as well as the important network of trade agreements it has, not only in North America, but also with the European Union and Mercosur, facilitate exports in different sectors, which in particular has triggered the growth of the automotive industry in our country, as well as the import and export of parts. Some of Mexico’s trade agreements and treaties include the following: Agreement for the Strengthening of the Economic Association, Mexico-Peru Trade Integration Agreement, Mexico-Bolivia Economic Complementation Agreement No. 66, ACE – 55, NAFTA, FTA-EU FTA, FTA, among others1.
Surrounded by the states of San Luis Potosí, Querétaro and Jalisco -which together have become the headquarters of the main automotive industry companies-, Zona Bajío has the largest presence of these companies, among which Mazda, Toyota, General Motors, Ford, Volkswagen and Honda stand out.
But today Zona Bajío also stands out as the best bet for the manufacturing industry because the city of San Miguel Allende has emerged as the new industrial destination in the Bajío region, particularly due to the competitive advantages of the new Polígono Empresarial San Miguel Industrial Park.
Its privileged location, a few kilometers from Querétaro, San José Iturbide and the Zona Bajío Industrial Corridor, make it a city with high potential for business, but also as a privileged destination for its quality of life and the excellent exposure it represents for any company.

Its location is also perfect for being on the way to important ports such as Manzanillo, Lázaro Cárdenas, Veracruz and Altamira. In addition to being surrounded by the Bajio International Airport, the Mexico City International Airport, as well as the Queretaro Intercontinental Airport.

Its location is ideal for commerce, connecting with major highways and only 248 kilometers from Mexico City and a few kilometers from Querétaro and San Luis Potosí, which facilitates the transfer of business.
