But the NMBorderplex isn’t just about aerospace testing and research. The region covers three states and two countries, and is a manufacturing hub. Over 60 percent of the components that go into an airliner are manufactured within the Borderplex region. Union Pacific’s new $500 million intermodal facility is the largest of its kind, bringing direct access to major seaports. With mild weather year-round, transportation problems rarely affect I-10 and I-25.
The region’s workforce is young and educated, boasting a student population of over 100,000 between NMSU, the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), the Universidad Autonoma de Ciudad Juarez, and 14 more community college branches across the region. Companies are invited to come discover why Las Cruces, New Mexico, along with the NMBorderplex, is the perfect site for aerospace development
