Mass, Not Trump, May Be Driver of Rassini Brake Deal

Cons. Discr. - Autos 1190 Mexico 891 U.S. 5329 USMCA 456

Mexican auto-part maker Rassini has signed a contract with Ford that will see it produce brake components for the Mustang in a new facility in the U.S.. This marks a reversal in the offshoring trend normally seen. The move is likely a function of cost – ie shipping vs. labor – rather than a reaction of President-elect Trump’s proposed NAFTA renegotiation. Panjiva data shows Rassini’s exports from Mexico had already been growing rapidly, at 13% in the three months to October 31. Ford is Rassini’s number two export customer after Toyota and ahead of Tesla.
