The Mexican Association of Industrial Parks (AMPIP) is a business organization created in 1986 to represent industrial real estate developers in Mexico. AMPIP offers an extensive network of contacts, a forum to discuss issues affecting industrial parks, promotion of foreign direct investment (FDI), and lobbying to promote public policies that strengthen industrial parks´ competitiveness. It can assist foreign investors in finding the ideal location for their new operations, including Class A buildings in inventory or Build to Suit projects, for sale or lease.
AMPIP members also provide shelter services for the establishment of a new company in Mexico as quickly and economically as possible. The group currently has 57 corporate members (private developers, investment funds and state governments’ industrial trusts). Together they have more than 200 industrial parks located throughout Mexico with over 30 million m2 in industrial buildings, and 2,000 national and foreign tenants (manufacturing and logistics operations). These parks are responsible for generating 2 million jobs.
