While Baja California’s maquiladora industry has seen slow growth in recent years, some of its sectors have been booming — and leading the pack is the assembly of medical devices. In the past six years, the number of direct jobs in Tijuana’s medical-device sector has more than doubled — from 15,000 to nearly 31,000, according to state and industry figures. Across Baja California, more than 42,000 people are employed in the sector, accounting for more than half the medical-device industry jobs in Mexico.
