Data Refinement Continues

The Reshoring Initiative would like to send a big thanks to the companies who reviewed and updated their reshoring data. One of the most important things we can do to accelerate reshoring in the U.S. is to collect data and then report on the parameters of the trend so that others can make better sourcing decisions with confidence and knowledge. Find out more about how to review, update or add your company to the database.
