Interactive web conference: To Offshore or Reshore? How to Objectively Decide.

April 24, 2014

Reshoring Initiative, Hubbardton Forge and are pleased to announce our upcoming interactive web conference, To Offshore or Reshore? How to Objectively Decide.

The webinar will be held:
Thursday, April 24, 2014 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM ET.

Reshoring is a hot topic in supply chain and manufacturing circles. The forces driving reshoring include: rising Chinese wage rates, high oil prices, low U.S. natural gas prices, and increasing recognition of the many advantages of producing near the customer. The most visible recent examples have been: Motorola, Apple, Flextronics, Lenovo and GE. We will document the reshoring trend (what, where, why, how much, etc.) and provide tools for comparing the economics of offshoring to reshoring to help companies make better decisions. The rate of new reshoring and new offshoring are now approximately in balance. This webinar will help companies decide which trend is best for them.

This webinar is most relevant to companies (generally OEMs) that do or are considering offshoring, either in their own factories or outsourced to contract manufacturers. It is also relevant as a sales tool for companies that supply capital equipment or components to the OEMs.
