Since the year 2000, moving manufacturing offshore has led to the loss of 5.8 million manufacturing jobs and 60,000 companies. As a result, the U.S. has lost the ability to manufacture all of the products needed to protect the health and welfare of Americans as well as American national security.

During this on-demand webinar, Michele Nash-Hoff, founder and president of ElectroFab Sales, provides information on how and why companies should conduct a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis to make the decision of whether or not they can return their manufacturing to America. Michele also discusses the hidden costs and risks of manufacturing offshore and the advantages of manufacturing in the U.S.

Key Takeaways:

  • How companies can determine their true Total Cost of Ownership
  • Why it is important to consider supplier geographical location
  • What the transportation alternatives are for each supplier
  • The importance of technological depth, reserve capacity, and responsiveness of suppliers
  • The effect of supplier selection on inventory costs and quality controls
  • The advantages of using “Buy American” and “Buy Local” as a guideline
