That's what we call them on the border; but not in other parts of the world. If intended for Mexico, it is appropriate.

ensambladora bajo contrato

Fronterizo ofrece "Maquiladora", pero ojo a las siguintes definiciones:

First Definition.
1) What is a "Maquiladora"?

A maquiladora is a Mexican corporation operating under a special customs regime which allows the corporation to temporarily import into Mexico duty-free, raw materials, equipment, machinery, replacement parts, and other items needed for the assembly or manufacture of finished goods for subsequent export.(1)

Second Definition.
south of the border, The Cherry Corp. has established its own Maquiladora operation in Juarez, Mexico, conducted through a wholly owned subsidiary, Cherry de Mexico, S. A. de C.V. Prior to this, Cherry used the services of a contract assembler in the Juarez area. The new operation is housed in temporary facilities while a new 51,000 square-foot building is being constructed to Cherry's specifications in the Intermex Industrial Park.

Third Definition.
a) Maquiladora: This is an in-bond export assembler. These are normally established along the U.S.-Mexico border and are 100 percent foreign cap ital owned (mainly U.S.). The plants are devoted almo st exclusively to assembly and, in general, they do not incorporate purchasing departments. Duties are not paid on the components and, therefore, these imports are not normally reflected in the automotive trade balance. Maquiladoras export 100 percent of their production unless special permits are granted by SECOFI. Maquiladoras will lose their special tax status in 1999.

Axelcha ofrece ensambladora, que no parece incluir el elemento de contrato. Hay que especificar que sea bajo contrato, creo

Es muy probable que en el contexto de la distribución se esté refiriendo a la "subcontratación de determinadas operaciones de montaje". De ahí que aparezca la figura del "contract assembler" o "empresa de montaje subcontratada" o "montador subcontratado".

Me parece que "Maquiladora" se usa más en el español americano que en el de España, aquí se conoce la palabra, pero no se usa.

Pero necesitaría el contexto exacto de los términos.

Resumen: "contract assembler"="Montador subcontratadado", "subcontratista de montaje",

Espero que te valga
