First of all, let me apologize for my/our lack of regular posting in a while. I lost focus and realize that this needs to be a regular event if we are going to make a run in social media. Next week, I will post Part III of eleiminating the white knuckle ride of startup, but I happened to run across something today that caught my eye.
I have been reading the daily email update for manufacturing.net (called “Today in Manufacturing”) for several years now and several times a week, I click through to an article that they have put a snippet of in my email. The one today on “A Homecoming for US manufacturing?” caught my eye.
Our business has exploded in the last 5 years and since our core is in manufacturing, I was interested to see what the article said because my feeling is that we are seeing a swing of the pendulum of manufacturing back to the US.
I even mentioned in my PILOT presentation a few months back to the city of Memphis that one of the reasons for our growth was a reshoring of American manufacturing. We at LSI also fully believe that the right kind of manufacturing is coming back – the type that requires more skilled labor and higher automation content for all of the reasons that the manufacturing.net article points out. What do you think?
