More On the Cost of Offshoring
5. October 2011
My colleague Peter Zelinski, senior editor of sister publication Modern Machine Shop, recently spent time with Harry Moser to discuss the topic of offshoring/reshoring.
Harry is the founder of the Reshoring Initiative, and in his conversation with Pete he talks about the total cost of ownership of manufactured goods. Various hidden costs often are not factored in when manufacturing work is sent to a foreign country, Moser points out. And when work is brought back to the U.S., these hidden costs turn into visible savings. The conversation seen here between Harry and Pete was filmed at G & G Manufacturing in Cincinnati, Ohio.
