Reshoring Award Goes to Flatware Company

Wednesday, April 17, 2019
Sherrill Manufacturing, a flatware manufacturer that operates under the Liberty Tabletop brand name in Sherrill, NY, has received the 2019 National Metalworking Reshoring Award. The award, given by the Reshoring Initiative, the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), The Association For Manufacturing Technology (AMT) and the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA), honors a company that has effectively reshored products, parts or tooling made primarily by metal forming, fabricating, casting or machining, including additive manufacturing.

Sherrill’s success story: After taking over the defunct Oneida Ltd. flatware factory and launching product under the Liberty Tabletop brand, Sherrill gained back flatware sales that had been lost, primarily to Asia, after Oneida went out business.

“We are very pleased that after many years of hard work our efforts to re-establish the flatware industry in the United States are finally paying off. This is a big win for our employees, who stuck with us through thick and thin, as well as for our loyal customers who search for, and insist on, ‘Made in America,’” says Greg Owens, CEO of Sherrill Manufacturing.

Presented this year in Tucson, AZ, at the MFG Meeting, organized by AMT and NTMA, IMTS 2020 will be the site of next year’s award presentation.

“Sherrill’s success demonstrates that large categories of work considered to have been lost forever are eligible to be reshored,” says Harry Moser, founder and president of the Reshoring Initiative.
