Turning National Catastrophes into Local Opportunity


The trade war and the COVID crisis have proven the value of shorter supply chains. Retail stores are closing, often permanently. The best solution to strengthen existing local manufacturers and provide the good jobs needed for social and economic stability for companies, minorities and displaced retail workers is to reshore manufacturing.

This webinar will provide the tools to help your organizations guide the work back to your region from China and other countries and to turn these critical issues into opportunities for your region. We will review the following tools:

  1. TCO Estimator to help companies quantify the advantages of sourcing and producing locally
  2. The Import Substitution Program to help locate and convince importers to buy or produce locally.
  3. The Supply Chain Gap program to identify major gaps in the regional or national supply chain and convince offshore suppliers to build in your region to fill the gaps.
  4. “Calculating ROI on FDI” to convince the offshore suppliers to supply the U.S market from your region.

Join Harry Moser, founder of the Reshoring Initiative and former president of machine tool maker GF AgieCharmilles for a webinar on Thursday, July 23, 2020, at 11:00 AM CST to learn how to get more than your share of the millions of jobs that will be reshored. 

The webinar is free and you can attend at no charge but registration is required. Save your seat today!
