The Cities Leading A U.S. Manufacturing Revival -
Manufacturing may no longer drive the U.S. economy, but industrial growth remains a powerful force in many regions of the country. Industrial employment has surged over the past five years, with the sector adding some 855,000 new jobs, a 7.5% expansion.

Several factors are driving this trend, including rising wages in China, the energy boom and a growing need to respond more quickly to local customer demand and the changing marketplace.

North American seaports 2015 overview and outlook - JLL
Already leading in TEUs, Gulf and eastern seaports are anticipated to capture even more West Coast discretionary cargo when a new Panama Canal opens next year. Demand for industrial space will not transfer equally—there are too many complexities and variables in the movement of goods to portend a macro shift in industrial occupancy. For now, it's a game of wait-and-see.

In Comparing Metro Areas, the Devil is in the Details -
Frequently I see examples of metro areas comparing themselves to other, more successful metro areas.  Metro area movers and shakers take a deep dive into the intricacies of what makes a "good" place tick, and try to implement the takeaways in their metro.  This is a reasonable action, but I believe it misses the point.  There is more to examine by taking a deep dive within your own metro than looking at another.

Some companies bringing manufacturing back to US, Mass. from overseas - Business - The Boston Globe
Four years after moving manufacturing to India in 2008, Cambridge robotics maker Energid Technologies Corp. brought production and a handful of jobs back to Massachusetts, squeezed by rising tariffs on parts imported to its Bangalore factory and frustrated by the unpredictable Indian bureaucracy and difficulties shipping its industrial robots to US markets.

Today, with robotics sales climbing, the company plans to ramp up production. But rather than looking to China, which conventional thinking would suggest, Energid is strongly considering expanding at its facility in Burlington.

This Silicon Valley startup is heading to China to make its batteries - Fortune
If Amprius can figure out how to mass produce its batteries at a lower cost, it could be an important break through. Not only could the company make cell phones and gadgets function longer on a single charge, but it might also one day be able to expand into the electric vehicle market and increase car driving ranges.

But Amprius won’t be building a U.S. factory to churn out its batteries, at least not initially.

Reshoring Is More than a Buzzword - Forbes

The mental gymnastics are relatively straightforward: Why complicate our lives by manufacturing in Asia – especially goods intended for the North American and West European markets – when the savings amount to no more than a few pennies on the dollar?

HP to Power Texas Data Centers With Wind Energy - The New York Times
