Companies with Mexican Origin
We are living in tough times.
We live in a time when our own government demonizes Latinos. In a presidential campaign speech in 2015, U.S. President Donald Trump called Mexicans “drug dealers, criminals, and rapists”. As a Latino magazine focused on celebrating the stories of highly successful Latinos, it is difficult to coincide with this statement. According to a study done by The Mexico Institute in 2016, Mexican foreign direct investment in the U.S. has quadrupled since 2005. Some of the most fruitful businesses globally are from Mexican origin. For example, the world’s largest baking company is Bimbo. The second largest building materials company in the world is CEMEX. Two of the major copper producers in the world are ASARCO and Southern Copper Corporation, both of Mexican origin. Mexican business even take part in IT and Telecommunications; the largest Spanish media companies are from Mexican origin. But not only are they creating these businesses, they also employ American workers. The same study showed that these businesses support more than 123,000 jobs in the U.S. So, like many others, we firmly reject such portrayal of Mexicans, or any Latinos for that matter. These businesses and entrepreneurs come to invest, create jobs, pay taxes, and help a community. But instead of talking about what Mexicans are not, we rather demonstrate what Mexicans are and the extraordinary job that they’re doing with straight, hard facts.
Through our research we have come across these companies that have established operations in the United States, pay taxes, and employ American workers. We have collected the number of employees and the latest amount of revenue profit that was available during our research. Due to the fact that some businesses are private, not all information was successfully attained. For questions of methodology or to be included in the future please contact us.
