In the cut-throat competition for reduced manufacturing costs, countless jobs in America have been out-sourced. Now, however, American firms are re-considering offshoring and are recognizing the fact that, although on the surface it may seem that sending jobs abroad may be less expensive than keeping them in the USA, in fact, it may be the opposite.

We live in a globalized day and age where many US firms send jobs overseas and where advances in technology allow us to work across oceans. However, it seems that we may be seeing a trend back towards localization. Indeed, firms are recognizing more and more that manufacturing abroad limits their ability to quickly deliver goods, maintain strategic inventories, and rapidly execute adjustments. Thus, many may start reshoring jobs.
Moreover, by manufacturing within the U.S, companies will likely have better quality control mechanisms and be able to consistently produce quality products. Moreover, producing locally reduces waste and improves coordination, and can strengthen a firm’s ability to quickly respond to customer demand. ZAGO, a manufacturer of industrial parts, can be a crucial part of the reshoring processes for a company’s supply chain.
