Auto Reshoring from Asia to U.S. - Supply & Demand Chain Executive
These announcements are just the latest in a growing trend of auto manufacturers to move production from Asia to North America. Both slumping sales and increased production costs in China, along with the growing complexity and risk of Asia to U.S. supply chains, are forcing manufactures to consider reshoring a large portion of the production.

Why Ethan Allen Believes in U.S. Manufacturing for Export - Woodworking Network
Excerpted from a presentation by Farooq Kathwari, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ethan Allen, to the Raymond James Insitutional Investment conference. Two years back, we would have thought of making it offshore. We are now making it right here in North America – in Vermont, and North Carolina. And we had to do something very simple. You see, there is a gold gilding on this. Our associates first said we can't do it here because this is easier to be done overseas. So we said let’s hire 30 or 40 artists. And today, we have been able to bring this product back, and now we are shipping it internationally, and especially to China.

Echelon Snowboards Announces US Manufacturing; Product Redesign - Transworld Business
From the beginning, it has been our desire to produce in the US. Why did it take this long? Well because we didnt set out to just compete with a cookie cutter product based solely on where it was made, we set out to dominate on innovation, quality, and performance. It has always been our mission to find a US production partner that shared our mindset and understood you can’t get 21st century results from complacent thinking and outdated materials while using thirty-year-old equipment. Point blank, that isnt how we roll.

Onshoring: Manufacturers capitalise on goods ‘made in the USA’ -
Google and Apple have moved some high-tech manufacturing from Asia to the US. While Google can lay claim to producing the first smartphone made on US soil, Apple’s desktop computer, the Mac Pro, is also “Made in USA”. This is not just a trend among large technology companies however. Smaller start-ups are building gadgets in north America rather than in China.

Insourcing at GE: The Real Story - Harvard Business Review

How to Do On-Shoring Right - EBN
Avigilon is one of the fastest-growing electronics companies in North America. You'd think that that fast growth and profitability would be fueled by a savvy manufacturing strategy that leveraged offshore labor and machinery to keep overhead low. You'd be wrong. Turns out Avigilon's manufacturing is almost entirely on-shored, and its CEO, longtime manufacturing maven Alexander Fernandes, prides his company on that.

Replacing the notion of ‘off-shoring’ and ‘on-shoring’ with ‘right-shoring’ - SaportaReport
Is offshoring inherently bad? Do manufacturing jobs “belong” onshore? Both questions are based on an erroneous assumption that trade creates winners and losers. A job producing something in China does not mean one fewer job here in the United States. It is not a zero sum game. My experience has shown that a properly executed strategy can and should create winners on both sides.

in the industry by nearly six million. But in January 2010, bloodletting in manufacturing employment finally ceased, and the sector has added nearly a half-million jobs since then.

Why Keeping Jobs Local Means Good Business - The Motley Fool
It's no secret that manufacturing jobs are leaving the United States in search of lower costs and lighter regulation. But it's precisely because of this that we are intrigued by companies that are not only still manufacturing in the United States, but are actually expanding their U.S. manufacturing capacity. These companies are either really stupid or really smart -- and there's an investing angle for us regardless of which proves true.

What’s more, neither of them is suffering a jobs crisis.
