The bigger picture with high tech manufacturing

A return to US manufacturing will enable companies to deal with IP protection, speed and agility challenges for specific customers. We’ve tried manufacturing in region for region, we’ve tried global hub for all regions and now we are seeing hybrid models.

As a supply chain practitioner in the High Tech industry for 10 years and having covered the industry as an analyst for two years, I tend to keep an eye out for high tech supply chain stories. Over the last year, there have been several announcements about opening sites in the US or at least plans to do so. In fact, links below include Motorola (now Google), Apple, Foxconn, Intel and Lenovo all with single examples of US manufacturing plans.
