The Reshoring Institute on Bringing Manufacturing Back to America
The Urgent Need to Reshore Now
by Rosemary Coates, Alex Levy
Reshoring manufacturing is a hot topic for executives across America. Bringing back manufacturing can help rebuild our industrial foundation and stabilize the economy by rebuilding the middle class. A recent study indicates that fifty-four percent of American businesses with over $1 billion in sales are Reshoring now or considering it.
Americans are now looking for products with a “Made in the USA” label. There is a perception that products made in the US are higher quality and last longer. Buyer behavior has shifted from simply trying to find the cheapest item, to finding the best value. There is a healthy respect for items made in America.
Companies are also seeing the benefits of local manufacturing. Building products locally reduces logistics and import costs, as well as allows for better control over quality and production changes. World-class companies now build products to address local preferences in local markets. This is a true evolution in global manufacturing strategy and tactics.
