TUCSON, Ariz., July 8th , 2012 /-- The Tucson, Arizona-based Offshore Group recently announced that it has entered into a long term relationship for the provision of outsourced manufacturing support, or "shelter," services in Mexico with UK-based manufacturer, J.J. Churchill, Ltd. The British firm will install production capacity in 38,500 square feet of manufacturing space within the confines of The Offshore Group's Roca Fuerte Industrial Park in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico. The term of the contract between the two parties is for ten years. J.J. Churchill Ltd. expects to employ a workforce of forty at the project's maturity.
According to Andrew Churchill, Managing Director of J.J. Churchill, "We embark on our new relationship in Mexico with The Offshore Group with a great sense of optimism. Our facility in Guaymas, Sonora will geographically position us to serve our North American customers, as well as the North American market as a whole, in both a time and cost-effective manner. The experience that The Offshore Group has with other aerospace manufacturers with profiles that are akin to ours only serves to fortify our expectations of similarly positive results."
