The Reshoring Initiative® not only provides tools and information to help manufacturers make better sourcing decisions, but also programs to help economic development organizations, trade associations, manufacturing companies, Manufacturing Extension Partnerships, universities, and community colleges bring offshored work to their region or industry and develop a stronger skilled workforce.

Our Economic Development Program is high impact with minimal cost. It combines resources from the Reshoring Initiative and Datamyne, a top-ranked provider of U.S. import data, to identify opportunities for products that could be economically reshored, and helps educate importers on the benefits of doing so. We are currently implementing this program with several states, and believe that it is the most cost-effective economic development program.
We recommend that anyone considering career paths watch the video, "Success in the New Economy", a clear presentation showing the advantages of skilled training compared to a university degree:
