As we turn our attention to the topic of manufacturing outsourcing, I will be looking for related learning opportunities to share with friends of the blog. To that end, I’d like to invite you to an upcoming lunch seminar hosted by one of our partners, Product Realization Group (PRG).
The seminar, Consider Onshoring—New Choices in Supply Chain Design, will focus on why some of the best companies are moving part of their supply chain back to the U.S. from Asia, and discuss the realities of offshoring and the hidden costs associated. As many manufacturers have experienced first-hand, the lowest part price doesn’t always equal the lowest total cost of ownership for many businesses.
Offshore vs. Onshore—New Choices in Supply Chain Design will be held Thursday, May 12th from 11:30am-1:30pm PST at National University in San Jose, California. Speakers will include Barb Roberts, President and CEO of Wright Engineered Plastics, and Sandeep Duggal, CEO of Extron.
Can’t make it to the live seminar? Don’t worry—you can still sign up to attend the (free!) online webinar.
If you are involved in the outsourcing of physical products and interested in learning how to leverage the latest supply chain trends to be more competitive, I urge you to attend this seminar. I will be participating via webinar and tweeting key insights @arenasolutions, so if you can’t make it, be sure to follow along!
