Harry Moser founded the Reshoring Initiative in 2010, as an industry-led effort to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States. The initiative works with U.S. manufacturers to help them recognize their profit potential as well as the critical role they play in strengthening the economy by utilizing local sourcing and production.
Mr. Moser will be in town to attend the grand opening of the Morris Great Lakes Headquarters and Tech Center in Cranberry (9151 Marshall RoadCranberry Township, Pennsylvania 16066) at which time he’ll be presenting the initiative at three different times:
May 8, 2013 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
May 8, 2013 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM
May 9, 2013 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
He will also make himself available throughout the day to speak to visitors about their unique reshoring opportunities.
The Reshoring Initiative takes direct action by helping U.S. manufacturers realize that local production and sourcing often reduce their total cost of ownership of purchased parts and tooling. The Initiative also trains suppliers to demonstrate to these manufacturers the economic advantages of local sourcing. Through reshoring, manufacturing in the United States is starting to gain momentum. Companies such as NCR and General Electric are already repatriating some of their manufacturing. And the Reshoring Initiative will continue its “return-manufacturing-home” message until all U.S. manufacturers are making objective sourcing decisions and thus realize America is increasingly the place to produce and source goods to supply the U.S. market.
Largely due to the success of the Reshoring Initiative, Moser was inducted into the 2010 Industry Week Manufacturing Hall of Fame and named Quality Magazine’s 2012 Quality Professional of the Year. He participated in President Obama’s 2012 Insourcing Forum, testified at a Congressional hearing on reshoring and manufacturing, and has been featured in numerous publications including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Bloomberg Businessweek.
