In 1971 Rohr leased "a small plant still in its in infancy" in Mexicali. The Machinists Union referred to it as "another runaway plant." Twelve employees there worked on electrical components (BART car harness lines, etc.) and welding (Navy contracted landing craft). Rohr felt that this small facility would help them remain competitive when bidding on contracts. This prompted protests in San Francisco and telegrams to California senators and representatives (Morris, 1971).
Rohr also "opened a second facility in Mexico-- the Parfabco plant in Tijuana -- for aircraft fabrication activities" (Rohr News, December 1990).
