We Know Manufacturing in Mexico

Shelmex began operations in 1996 as Sagui Internacional in the Northern Mexican city of Monterrey. The company’s first products were piñatas for U.S. retailers. The nature of the product helped develop artisan crafted techniques which enabled the company to acquire experience in labor-intensive processing.

Shelmex soon expanded its capabilities to meet the demands and requests of new customers. In 2005, the hand-crafted manufacturing environment began serving the manual assembly needs of the greeting card industry incorporating other printing and packaging manufacturing process. Since then, Sagui has diversified its labor-intensive services to accommodate specific manufacturing needs of a diverse group of customers.
