Manufacturing in Queretaro 

Queretaro, Queretaro

On December 23, 1823, Queretaro became the 11th Mexican state. It’s located within Mesa Central, and with an area of about 4,500 square miles, it’s one of the smallest states in the country. Mountains border Queretaro to the north, and there are plains and valleys to the south. The area contains diverse ecosystems - from deserts to jungles - and a third of the territory is taken up by the Sierra Gorda region. Queretaro has a population of about 2 million with most of the citizens living in and around its capital city, Santiago de Querétaro.
