    * "The Morey Corporation was in pursuit of a large electronics build opportunity - $15+ million per year over 4 years. In the process we needed to perform an offshore vs. onshore analysis. We used the TCO calculator from Harry Moser and the Reshoring Initiative. This tool framed the costs and risks of both options and was a crucial piece to our winning strategy." - Tony Woodall, VP of Sales
