What Do American Manufacturers Owe Their Country?

What Do American Manufacturers Owe Their Country? | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

The Real Cost Of That Pool Toy | Blogs | Manufacturing.net | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

My cell phone rang. A simple question from a friend: “You’ve worked in China. Can you recommend a manufacturer to produce my patented pool toy?” Ordinarily, rattling off potential Chinese producers would have been easy. But, having just spent a week touring U.S. manufacturing facilities in Ohio, I dramatically altered my response. “Have you considered a US-based producer? Why not keep the job in America?” My friend was surprised: “Really? I hadn’t thought of that.” And, therein lies the root of the problem.  Read more....

“The Atlantic” Story of American Manufacturing Renaissance? Think Again | The Innovation Files

“The Atlantic” Story of American Manufacturing Renaissance? Think Again | The Innovation Files | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

The cover story of this month’s The Atlantic is titled “Comeback: Why the Future of Industry is In America.” The lead article by Charles Fishman argues that the outsourcing wave is largely over and now U.S. companies, exemplified by GE’s appliance division doing more work in the U.S., are seeing the light and moving work back to the U.S. Given the decimation of U.S. manufacturing over the last decade, I sincerely hope Fishman is right.....

Will Apple Spark a U.S. Manufacturing Renaissance?

Will Apple Spark a U.S. Manufacturing Renaissance? | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Sometimes, PR moves end up having bigger-than-anticipated effects. Just look at auto manufacturing in the South. Today the only American-made Mac is the kind you buy under Golden Arches and eat. America's other well-known Mac, Apple's Mac computer, is manufactured in China (like all other Apple products). That's about to change. Apple announced last week that it will invest $100 million to make Macs (through third parties) in the U.S. This move makes strategic sense for Apple and is potentially important for the U.S. economy longer term....

Can reshoring really make a dent?

Can reshoring really make a dent? | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Positive signs continue to come in for the American manufacturer. The trend of reshoring—bringing back manufacturing that had been offshored to, say, China—appears to be more than a flash in the pan. As I’ve written before, more and more domestic companies are opening their eyes to the real costs of overseas manufacturing. While the price of a product might be somewhat cheaper to make in Shanghai, other costs have to be considered......
