An entrepreneur with 30 years of experience in manufacturing in Mexico as an owner and management executive in the maquila industry, Paul chose Zacatecas for Entrada’s first manufacturing park after evaluating central and northern Mexico sites that could significantly improve the competitiveness of Entrada’s future clients. In 2003, Entrada forged a strategic relationship with Gilbarco-Veeder-Root, a Danaher company, and has continued to experience steady growth. Paul Karon discusses the advantages of operating in a small city in the small state of Fresnillo, Zacatecas, and Entrada’s business model for 2nd and 3rd tier automotive suppliers that are typically owner-managed. He also shares two Entrada client success stories: US company Telamon and Canadian company Pacific Insight. Listen on-demand to hear the full conversation with Paul Karon.
