opportunities for individuals and companies to support reshoring

There are so many ways to help support reshoring and U.S. manufacturing. The most important ones are for companies to use the free TCO Estimator http://reshorenow.org/manage-tco/ and for consumers to buy more Made in USA products. Below is a summary of many actions that can have a powerful impact on reshoring.


Buy more Made in USA products - Use your consumer power wisely. It is remarkable how many quality items are made in the USA. Finding U.S. made goods can be challenging, but branding and awareness are improving. To get started, check out this list of resources on where and how to buy Made in USA.

Educate your employees and customers – Invite a Reshoring representative to give a presentation at your event, to your company, or to your customers.
