Reshoring vs. Offshoring

February 12, 2015

Bringing manufacturing operations home may be a beneficial option for some US companies, but has also proven to be a difficult, and sometimes daunting process.

Offshoring is seemingly not the most profitable option for companies as of late, but is reshoring the solution? It appears that reshoring has its share of difficulties as well, which could present companies with a difficult decision on the proper course of action.

Reshoring Challenges

  • Wider range of suppliers in China than in the US
  • Shortage of skilled labor and an overall inexperienced workforce in the US
  • Outdated machinery in US factories

Businesses thinking about reshoring will have to be prepared to face costly adjustments in business practices, so many are questioning whether reshoring is worth the risk.
