Win work back from low cost overseas manufacturers!

Reshoring production has grown increasingly popular in the U.S. over the last few years in the face of higher transportation and fuel costs, higher wage rates overseas, and increasing reject rates in developing countries. The non-profit Reshoring Initiative accelerates this process by helping companies objectively decide what and when to reshore through the Total Cost of Ownership Estimator software.
details the benefits of sourcing in the United States. This is extremely important given that 60% of OEMs and manufacturers use "rudimentary total cost models" and ignore up to 20% of the costs of offshoring. If you and your customers are not accounting for 20% the costs to offshore -- offshoring may NOT be the most economical decision. In a tough economy, no one can afford that.
