Mexican Company Newly in Seattle

This post was written by Vicky Hsiang, who is a student at the University of Washington Intensive Business English Program. She has the equivalent of a Bachelor's degree in Spanish from her native Taiwan, and is interning with us during Spring Quarter.

TechBA is a company from Mexico which introduces other Mexican companies into the U.S. and other countries. It is believed that this will create more local job opportunities. Washington’s information technology, aerospace and biomedical companies are supportive of TechBA. The State Department of Commerce has provided TechBA team members with temporary meeting rooms because of the potential to create local jobs.

TechBA will expand its company into Seattle at the end of April. The firm already has several offices in the U.S.; this office in Seattle will be the fifth. The reason that TechBA chose Seattle for its fifth office is related to Microsoft; we know that Microsoft has a tradition of hiring employees who are graduates of the Monterrey Institute of Technology in Mexico. Itzam de Gortari, director of TechBA, said they will analyze Seattle companies to find a good match with Mexican counterparts and will introduce 15 Mexican companies to Seattle by the end of October 2010.
