Reshoring Competition Underway

Friday, September 13, 2019
 
Companies that have successfully reshored products, parts or tooling made primarily by metal forming, fabricating, casting or machining, including additive manufacturing, may enter the 3rd National Metalworking Reshoring Award, sponsored by Reshoring Initiative, Precision Metalforming Association, National Tooling and Machining Association and Association for Manufacturing Technology.

To be eligible, the work must have been reshored between January 1, 2013 and May 31, 2020, from outside North America to North America. Reshoring includes work produced in-house or outsourced. Applications must be submitted by June 30, 2020.

“In 2018 more than 1300 companies announced that they were shifting jobs to the U.S. from offshore, up 38 percent from 2017,” says Harry Moser, founder and president of the Reshoring Initiative. “Jobs reshored since 2010 account for 3.3 percent of total U.S. manufacturing. We hope that other associations will choose to support similar awards to show that their industries are successfully reshoring.”
