Made (Once Again) In The USA

Interesting quick slideshow/article by Eric Markowitz at Inc. Magazine briefly describing six companies that have brought manufacturing back to US shores.

Leaders cite growing labor costs, efficiencies of shorter supply chains, "Made In USA" branding advantages (as with Buck Knives) and product quality as decision-making differentiators. I'd guess the business strategy teams at large enterprises are also looking at the emphasis on manufacturing compeititveness of both the Obama and Santorum political teams -- and the toughening of rhetoric around Chinese currency manipulation -- as additional inputs to arrive at similar decisions.

Anyone looking for support for "reshoring" should send this link around.
