The Border Industrial Association

Recognizing a need in the Santa Teresa/Sunland Park border region for an industrial advocacy group GPI partnered with manufacturers in the region to form the Border Industrial Association.

The BIA is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization consisting of over 50 members (all involved in industry), that represent more than 2,000 jobs, hundreds of millions in investment in southern New Mexico, and millions of dollars of annual taxes. The Santa Teresa/Sunland Park region, which surrounds the Santa Teresa Port of Entry (STOPE), represents one of New Mexico’s largest industrial bases.
