About the Offshore Group
The Offshore Group is the largest provider of shelter services in Mexico.
Shelter service providers are unique to Mexico and began helping foreign manufacturers in the late 70’s and 80’s by acting as an “in-country knowledge and experience layer” between a foreign manufacturer and the various Mexican governmental bodies. The idea of a shelter service provider was to allow foreign companies to benefit from the lower wage structure in Mexico and not have to deal with unfamiliar laws and business practices that could create an unacceptable level of predictability and risk.

Driven by Principles
In 2007, The Offshore Group began a quest to discover and understand the very principles that had been driving the success of the company for 21 years. Rather than come up with a number of arbitrary and commonly used moral-based principles that one often sees in frames and banners at company lobbies, our goal was to identify which non-negotiable values we needed to uphold day-in and day-out with our employees, clients, and service providers to sustainably meet our mission.
