Offshoring gained popularity based on low purchasing prices promised by moving manufacturing overseas. However, the total cost of ownership of offshored items could be much higher than products/components manufactured locally. Harry Moser, chairman emeritus at GF AgieCharmilles, discusses re-shoring and how U.S. businesses can execute and benefit from it. He also explains how to estimate the total cost of ownership so that businesses can make wise manufacturing choices.
