    The number of Mexican aerospace companies has tripled to more than 300 in the last six years and it's not stopping there. The Mexican business magazine Mexico Now is sponsoring a daylong aerospace industry conference -- in Philadelphia -- June 24 and it's clearly aimed at OEMs who might be thinking of moving some of their production there. So far dozens of established companies, including Cessna, Bombardier, Hawker Beechcraft and Pratt & Whitney, have built factories in Mexico or are contracting with Mexican companies. "The main objective of this seminar is to obtain detailed and privileged information about the current and future conditions and trends of the aerospace Industry in offshore manufacturing operations," said conference spokesman Sergio Omel.

    The conference runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue and will feature speakers from the Mexican aerospace industry as well as representatives from companies that now do business in Mexico who will relate their experiences. The conference also promises to "objectively analyze the present and future business conditions of the aerospace industry in Mexico."
