Reshoring & COVID-19 Webinar
Webinar: Reshoring Now!  COVID-19 Supply Chain Wake-Up Call for Forging Producers
 
June 11, 2020
11:00 a.m. (EDT)
FIA Members Only

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now clear that domestic supply chains are stronger and more competitive for the United States and North America. In the last two months FIA has tracked an explosion of Google key-word searches for ‘forged parts’ suggesting that OEMs are now getting more serious about reshoring part of their forging supply chains back to the United States and North America, which creates opportunities for FIA’s forging producers.

In this free members-only webinar, our presenter will demonstrate how to convince your customers that they will be more profitable buying from you as much as 20-40% of products they now import. Tools will be demonstrated to help your customers make decisions and results of numerous studies showing that these tools work will be shared. In addition, examples of job shops that helped OEMs reshore will be discussed, including one job shop that won a $60 million order.

 
Primary Topics include:

  • How to identify the companies that import what you make competitively
  • How to help the customer quantify the costs and risks of offshoring
  • How to market reshoring
  • How to convince companies to reshore and buy from you

He also received the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s Industry Advocacy Award in 2014 and the 2019 Made in America Reshoring Award. Harry was recognized by Sue Helper, then Commerce Department Chief Economist, as the driving force in founding the reshoring trend and named to the Commerce Department Investment Advisory Council in August 2019.
