Jones Lang LaSalle: Made in America-A Case for U.S. Manufacturing
Globalization has created both challenges and opportunities for manufacturers, with recent events such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and unrest in the Middle East showing that disruptions in supply chains can reverberate around the world and erode profits long after the initial shock.
This white paper explores the complexity of site selection for manufacturing operations in the United States, focusing on factors such as total delivered costs, supply chain infrastructure, work force characteristics, proximity to customers and suppliers, business tax climates, economic incentives, and risk mitigation.
Additionally, three companies that have made the decision to manufacture in the states explain their reasons for doing so: Hytrol, a leading manufacturer of conveyor equipment; German automaker Volkswagen; and appliance maker Whirlpool.
