Type of Manufacturers

Sub-contracting in Argentina can be very uncertain. Many SMEs have appeared over the last few years. They are under-equipped and do not have qualified personnel. They do not respect schedules, they have problems of quality, but they do not hesitate to respond to all types of tenders. Local sub-contracting is always possible thanks to Argentine ingenuity. However, they are not competitive internationally.
