We are Looking for PartnersThe Reshoring Initiative is looking for partners to help in the following areas:
- Additive Manufacturing – We are looking for cases of companies that have used additive manufacturing (3D printing) to produce reshored parts. OEMs and contract manufacturers are both encouraged to submit their cases. Please submit your case study online.
- U.S. Politicians – We are seeking the support and involvement from both political parties to help spread the word and make the United States the best country for manufacturing. A broad range of politicians' offices have already contacted us, including: Senators Durbin (IL) and Gillibrand (NY), Congressman Schneider (IL), and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. If you have connections with any U.S. Representatives or Senators that might be interested, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
