Recently, GreenLeaf Industries has noticed a renewed interest in companies looking to bring their plastic injection molding part production back to the U.S. after previously off-shoring production to Asia or Mexico. The Lenoir City, TN based manufacturer has been successful in re-shoring multiple projects to their factory and continue to educate prospective purchasing officers and corporate leadership about re-shoring versus off-shoring and the true cost of outsourcing overseas.
Re-Shoring versus Off-Shoring
“Just in the past two months we’ve seen three major companies within our area looking to bring manufacturing jobs back to America. So, we’re very excited,” said Segrest when prompted about the recent changes seen in the industry.
This renewed interest in returning production to the States is known as “re-shoring.”
GreenLeaf’s 2017 marketing messages have been adjusted to inform leaders in the industry that American injection molders are “Finally being put on a level playing field… American business is not afraid to compete and win,” said Segrest.
The issue of American manufacturing competitiveness has been amplified by recent regulations and conversations sparked by the new American President.
Fox & Friends & The GreenLeaf Interview
Preceding the President’s visit to Tennessee this week, the campaign was noticed by Fox & Friends which resulted in a televised national interview between GreenLeaf Industries’ Business Development Manager, Robert Segrest, and Fox’s highly-regarded, and best selling author, Steve Doocy.
The pressure on American businesses to compete, win and grow has increased. The result is a keen interest in knowing if offshoring manufacturing to Asia or Mexico is still financially beneficial.
Labor optimization, improved processes and the application of world class automation has turned the table on the question of re-shoring versus off-shoring.
Highlighting GreenLeaf’s Ability to Compete Against Off-Shore Manufacturers
In fact, the financial interest is so great GreenLeaf launched a tool on their website to allow executives 24/7 access to a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Re-Shoring Calculator to quickly compare their current offshoring solution to a modern re-shoring solution and receive an estimate or formal quote to bring their plastic injection molding project back to the U.S.
