Major Trends in Global Manufacturing: Nearshoring and Total Cost of Ownership

Two significant trends in manufacturing are the "Total Cost of Ownership" and "Nearshoring". Find out more in this TECMA podcast with Jim Gitney, CEO of Group50 Consulting, a global manufacturing and distribution consulting firm.

 
PRLog - Apr. 28, 2014 - LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- EL PASO, Texas, April 28, 2014 /NEWS – The Tecma Group (http://www.tecma.com/) of companies recently recorded a podcast with the Los Angeles-based CEO of Group 50 Consulting, Jim Gitney, regarding the growing interest in the global manufacturing trends of “total cost of ownership” and “nearshoring”.

During the approximately thirty minute session, Gitney explains how the industrial site selection process is no longer an exercise in chasing low manufacturing wages around the globe in order to determine which country, or countries to produce goods in.  He asserts that the process is most effectively driven by identifying all the components of cost associated with the production and distribution of a product, calculating them, and, based on this careful research and analysis, choosing the country in which the “total cost of ownership” (http://www.group50.com/category/podcasts/) is the least.

A secondary focus of the Tecma Talk podcast (http://www.group50.com/cost-effective-manufacturing-mexic...) is nearshoring and other global manufacturing trends that drive  manufacturers to locate facilities in close proximity to the primary points of consumption.  The CEO of Group 50 asserts: “making product closer to the markets in which end users purchase and use them is an integral part of what is required to lower the total cost of ownership.  Given this reality and other macro-economic trends, nearshoring, or bringing production back to the US and Mexico from far flung places, such as China in particular, is becoming more commonplace.”
