You are not going to compete with offshore means of production by manually building product faster or cheaper. The only way to match changing demand and persistent operations disruptions is by shortening supply chains and by bringing highly innovative, efficient means of production closer to your customers. This is where automation comes in.
- 7/10 companies cite logistics costs as a reason for reshoring
- 130K more jobs projected to return to the U.S. this year
- 70% of executives have production reshoring under way
- 43% are looking to automation to bolster reshoring initiatives
Companies seeking to return production and distribution closer to their customers need more flexible automation systems to quickly adapt to changing demand.
