A seven-page White Paper has been released by the North American Die Casting Assn. (NADCA) on the resurgence of manufacturing sourcing to U.S. suppliers as reported in major consulting firm studies and by industry and business publications. The overview cites examples of “onshoring” that range from Fortune 500 companies to smaller manufacturers producing toys.
The review notes that North American custom die casters are participating in this trend, with nearly a quarter of NADCA members reporting new gains from die casting projects previously sourced offshore. Factors responsible for recent OEM decisions to return to U.S. suppliers, a trend that is expected to continue, are discussed in detail.
This latest NADCA report is an updating of the research study, “Hidden Costs of Offshore Sourcing,” which NADCA conducted in conjunction with the U.S. Dept. of Commerce in 2004.
