General Session (30 min): Reshoring Jobs to North America: How the U.S. and North America are bringing back jobs that have traditionally been offshored

Speaker: Harry Moser, Founder, Reshoring Initiative

Abstract: For many manufacturers, it has never been more evident that offshoring components can carry a great deal of cost and risk. National reshoring expert, Harry Moser, will discuss the benefits of reshoring and calculating your product’s total cost of ownership. He will show that 20 to 30% of what is now imported would be produced or sourced here more profitably. Tune in to find the tools to help you source smarter and also sell smarter when competing with imports!

  • What You Will Learn About:
    • Why manufacturing more products in North America really can be the best economic decision for your company.
    • What factors contribute to your product’s TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
    • How to pick products to reshore
    • How to find and sell to new customers who import what you produce.
