It’s Time to Act.

That’s what many companies are feeling now that manufacturing risks and vulnerabilities have been exposed by the pandemic. Parts shipments have been delayed from Asia. Freight rates are volatile. Markets have changed and demand has shifted wildly. The economy is uncertain. Geopolitics are unstable.

Meanwhile, The CHIPS and Science Act is helping to restore high-tech jobs to the U.S., while the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is playing a part in attracting investments as well. What do we do now with these challenges and opportunities?

Rosemary Coates, Founder & Executive Director, Reshoring Institute and President, Blue Silk Consulting, will discuss the current state of global manufacturing, the possibility of nearshoring and reshoring, and the rebuilding and resurrection of domestic supply chains. It’s time to rebuild manufacturing in America.
