In 1999, Monterrey Technology Park was developed as a response to the demand for premium industrial real estate in an area commonly referred to as the Monterrey - Nuevo Laredo Industrial Corridor. Monterrey Technology Park is strategically positioned alongside the Monterrey - Nuevo Laredo toll road within this emerging industrial zone. The park belongs to Cienega de Flores, Nuevo Leon, which is one of several municipalities or sub-sectors right outside the Monterrey metropolitan area. The sub-urban location of MTP makes it convenient for industrial traffic in having access to the city's highway loops which make it possible to avoid dwelling through the metropolitan area.

Monterrey Technology Park offers the ideal setting for any small, medium, or large multinational or domestic corporation looking to set up production or distribution facilities in a place that offers all the basic industrial services. These services include wide streets with landscaping along the medians, street lighting, irrigation system for the common areas, well water, sewage, gas, electricity via a 60,000 kVA CFE substation, sanitary water treatment facility, telephone network with fiber optics capability, large water reserve towers, public ATM along the main avenue, guard post, and an area reserved for a fire station project currently in the works.

Also, because Cienega de Flores is an emerging industrial sector, there are ambitious projects underway to further develop and expand housing and services in order to continue attracting even more labor closer to the region.

NUEVO LEON

The state of Nuevo Leon, and specifically Monterrey, currently offers a large variety of strategic advantages for international trade. For well over 100 years, Monterrey has been the nation's industrial capital. Until recently, Fortune once again voted Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico as the Best Latin-American City to do business. This in part has much to do with geography, although one particular feature, which has for a long time characterized the local "Regiomontano" culture, has been a very progressive and entrepreneurial attitude and commitment to hard work. Presently, more than 10,000 companies in Monterrey serve domestic and foreign markets offering a wide range of goods and services.

In order to satisfy the growing demand for skilled labor for a vast industrial base, the state government of Nuevo Leon consistently supports permanent training programs, conducted by public and private organizations in areas such as productivity, quality, and customer service.

For those who are commercially active with the rest of the Mexican national market, the interstate highway system connects Nuevo Leon with Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Puebla, which are respectively the largest, second and fourth largest cities in Mexico to the south. For those seeking a fast export route to the north, Laredo, Texas is basically the closest border crossing point from Monterrey leading to the vast North American markets of the U.S. and Canada.
