Reshoring Initiative September Newsletter

We are Looking for Partners

The 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 info@reshorenow.org.

Now Available: ReMaking America

The much anticipated ReMaking America book from the Alliance for American Manufacturing is now available for purchase. The publication features essays by Richard McCormack, Eric Garfinkel, Leo Hindery, Sridhar Kota, Harold Meyerson, Harry Moser, Scott Paul, Irene Petrick, Carl Pope, and Stacey Jarrett Wagner. 

Kirkus Review calls the book, "A sophisticated, persuasive argument that Made in America means a stronger America."

Reshoring: An Increasingly Global Trend

Reshoring is becoming a hot topic abroad, especially in Europe. In the past few months, the Reshoring Initiative has participated in discussions and interviews with European leaders and researchers, including:

  • The business association in The Hague
  • Business, government and university groups at Tilburg University in Holland
  • Mainstream Dutch media coverage on TV and radio
  • A full-page cover article in the August 5 edition of Het Financieele Dagblad
  • French Industry Minister Arnaud Montebourg
In fact, the French government recently announced it would be sponsoring a Reshoring Initiative of its own.
