Turning National Catastrophes Into Local Opportunity

About the Presenter

After 25 years at the helm of GF AgieCharmilles, now GF Machining Solutions, as North American president and subsequently chairman emeritus, Harry Moser founded the Reshoring Initiative to help bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Largely due to the success of the Reshoring Initiative, Harry was inducted into the Industry Week Manufacturing Hall of Fame 2010 and was named Quality Magazine's Quality Professional of the Year for 2012.

Harry and the Reshoring Initiative focus primarily on bringing back as much manufacturing as possible at the current U.S. level of competitiveness. Secondarily, they work to improve U.S. competitiveness by advocating for needed policy changes and by strengthening the U.S. skilled workforce. Harry serves on the board of MSSC (Manufacturing Skill Standards Council), a leading manufacturing credentialing organization.


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!
