There are more than 1,200 aerospace companies across Arizona. They include large manufacturers, like Boeing, which makes helicopters in Mesa; suppliers, making electronic systems for airplanes; and those making interior components, like seatbelts, said Kevin O'Shea of the Arizona Commerce Authority.

Some of those companies export to places like France and Israel, but O'Shea said the biggest market is next door. The Mexican government expects revenues for this sector to top US$12 billion in the year 2020.
