Annual Sewn Products Reshoring Award
Presented by SEAMS & The Reshoring Initiative
Due to the overwhelming success of this Award in 2019, we are excited to announce that this Award will now be presented Annually in collaboration with The Reshoring Initiative. This prestigious award is open to all companies that have successfully reshored the sewing of any product to the U.S., accelerating the Made in America movement.
U.S. reshoring is the practice of transferring offshore business operations or sourcing back to the U.S. in addition to any new or significantly increased production in the U.S. from importing. The Made in America Movement is focused on increasing production in the U.S. to strengthen the economy and bring jobs back to the U.S. The SEAMS organization drives this trend with a membership of the leading U.S. brands, manufacturers, and retailers in the sewn products industry.
Eligibility for this award must include production reshoring from offshore back to the U.S. or represent new production that has taken market share from imports between January 1, 2014, and June 30, 2020. There will be awards for three industry categories: cut and sew manufacturers; brands/OEMS/vertical retailers; and textile providers (products produced in the U.S.). Relevant companies for any sewn products are encouraged to apply. Request for applications must be received by June 19, 2020. Final applications must be submitted by July 17, 2020. Links to award details and initial online application are available on both SEAMS and the Reshoring Initiative websites.
Please join our winners from 2019 as we continue to grow our business and bring it back to America!
