Since the 1990's and early 2000’s global organizations have been moving manufacturing OFF-SHORE based on the "Low Cost Country Model." But today 34 % of the Mid-Market to Large Companies in North America and Europe are looking at: Re-Shoring some operations back home to “Rebalance Global Manufacturing” while leaving some operations to serve the growing offshore Asian markets. The potential economic impact of RE-SHORING on North America could be adding $ 20 to $ 55 Billion in output back into the domestic economy with the creation of 1 Million Jobs in a new manufacturing renaissance in the next decade. Is it time for you and your company to take a fresh, hard look at Manufacturing in North America just like: Apple, Caterpillar, Electrolux, Ford, General Electric, Motorola, NCR, Regal, Stanley, Whirlpool and others are doing in 2014 ?

CUSBA's Guest Speaker is Mr. Kevin Barrentine,  Director, Deloitte CRG. Kevin Barrentine brings the FACTS & DATA to the GLOBAL RE-SHORING QUESTION with expertise on the subject matter as well as more than 20 years of experience developing and implementing global operational improvement plans, advising and collaborating with organizations on change management,  restructuring and reorganizations for numerous manufacturing companies.
