Sponsorship Benefits for Companies

The Reshoring Initiative offers the following actions to benefit corporate sponsors:

  1. Identify and promote cases of customers using your products as part of their reshoring and FDI (Foreign Direct Investment).
  2. Identify and promote cases of reshoring by your company.
  3. Joint articles and webinars.
  4. Train your sales team to help customers compare domestic to offshore Total Cost, resulting in more sales here. We helped a Chicago area contract manufacturer save a $60 million order* vs. lower priced Chinese imports by using our TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) software to make a more accurate comparison.
  5. Presentations to your customers. For example, I spoke to Mitsubishi Electric’s and GF Machining Solutions’ customers during IMTS 2014, at Gardner Business Media’s booth at NPE and often speak at sponsor open houses.
  6. Identify companies that are reshoring relevant production and should need more of your products.
  7. Strengthen the company’s image of commitment to North American manufacturing.
  8. Strengthen your core market.
  9. Use our tools in other countries. Reshoring is popular in markets from Canada to Netherlands to Korea. Most of our sponsoring companies, mainly in the machine tool industry, have parent companies outside of N. America, as is the norm in the industry.

*"The Morey Corporation was in pursuit of a large electronics build opportunity - $15+ million per year over 4 years. In the process we needed to perform an offshore vs. onshore analysis. We used the TCO calculator from Harry Moser and the Reshoring Initiative. This tool framed the costs and risks of both options and was a crucial piece to our winning strategy."

Sponsorship Benefits for Trade Associations

The Reshoring Initiative offers the following actions to benefit trade association sponsors:

  1. Identify and promote cases of:

    a. Reshoring by member companies.

    b. Reshoring by customers using members’ products (components, capital equipment, etc.)

    Thereby document that the association’s U.S. members are competitive with offshore sources.

  2. Present at association meetings and shows.
  3. Joint articles and webinars. Have done op-eds with or for associations, tying their objectives to the reshoring trend. Easier to place with the Initiative’s credibility.
  4. Train member sales teams to help customers compare domestic to offshore Total Cost, resulting in more sales here. We helped a Chicago area contract manufacturer save a $60 million order vs. lower priced Chinese imports by using our TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) software to make a more accurate comparison.*
  5. Present to members’ customers, e.g. at conferences.
  6. Identify customer companies that have heavily offshored. Work with members to educate the customers on the benefits of sourcing locally.
  7. Strengthen the associations’ image of commitment to North American manufacturing.
  8. Strengthen the association’s core market.
  9. Cooperate on skilled workforce recruitment. We have excellent presentations on the subject. Also, by documenting and promoting cases of reshoring we will help recruits see that manufacturing is, again, a stable career choice.
  10. Provide the reshoring logic and methods to international members. All countries want to reshore, to produce for their home market.

“SPI has sponsored RI as a key program for strengthening our industry. Harry has been an excellent speaker at several plastics industry conferences and has also provided direct, effective support to SPI members.” Bill Carteaux, President & CEO, SPI - The Plastics Industry Trade Association

“Harry C. Moser was the Keynote speaker at the Haskins Steel Power Breakfast, part of the Smartmap Expo 2012, a major Pacific Northwest annual manufacturing networking trade show, located in Pasco, WA. Harry not only gave an outstanding presentation during the Power Breakfast, but also presented a Reshoring Workshop, attended a networking reception the evening before and the trade show itself, meeting one on one with exhibitors and attendees. The great thing about Harry, is that he goes above and beyond his speaker responsibilities, providing tremendous value to the event.”
