Earn Recognition for Your Reshoring Efforts
Companies that have successfully reshored products, parts or tooling made primarily by metal forming, fabricating, casting or machining, including additive manufacturing, are invited to apply by January 31 for the Second National Reshoring Award.
The January 31 deadline is almost here for the Second National Reshoring Award hosted by AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, NTMA (National Tooling and Machining Association), the Reshoring Initiative and PMA (Precision Metalforming Association). This award is open to both OEMs/branded product companies and job shops/contract manufacturers.
To be eligible for the award, the work must have been reshored between January 1, 2013, and December 31, 2018, from outside North America to within North America. Product, parts or tooling reshored must be made primarily by forming, casting, fabricating or machinining, including additive manufacturing.
Criteria considered include: number of U.S. jobs created, dollars/year of sales reshored, product innovation and process innovation. Completeness of application is also a consideration as well as membership to PMA, AMT and NTMA and registration at IMTS 2018 and this year’s MFG Meeting.
The awards will be presented March 8 at the MFG Meeting in Tucson, Arizona.
“In 2017 about 170,000 United States manufacturing jobs were announced to come back from offshore, up 2,800 percent from 2010,” says Harry Moser, founder and president of the Reshoring Initiative. “We anticipate that this award will motivate more companies to reevaluate their offshoring and see that it is often more profitable to produce or source domestically. We also hope that other associations will choose to support similar awards to show that their industries are now successfully reshoring.”
