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.

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.
