Many manufacturers are now looking at moving their business from China and other Asian countries back to North America. This trend has been heightened as the global pandemic shut down borders, making it harder for manufacturing representatives to perform plant tours and quality checks and slowing of logistics impacted transportation times.

Bringing production back to North America has numerous advantages including greater control over quality and final product, ease of communication as you’re crossing less time zones, and simplified logistics as you’re probably not shipping product. You can keep many of the labor costs advantages by considering Mexico for your reshoring destination, where labor costs are lower but quality is still on par with U.S. manufacturing. Further, sourcing your parts closer to home can significantly cut transportation costs and allow for just-in-time delivery, saving warehousing your excess and allowing you the ability to flex so your supply meets the existing demand.
