Lately we’ve been telling you about all the companies that are waking up to the unexpected costs of outsourcing, especially due to rising fuel costs increasing the cost of shipping, and are returning operations back to North America.
The rising cost of shipping everything from industrial-pump parts to
lawn-mower batteries to living-room sofas is forcing some manufacturers
to bring production back to North America and freeze plans to send even
more work overseas.

There’s no place like home. Dorothy Gale learned this valuable lesson
at the end of the timeless film classic, The Wizard of Oz, as she
returns to her Kansas farmhouse from the magical land of witches,
talking apple trees and munchkins.
Molding service providers see business booming as more device firms
move overseas work back to their homeland and benefit from increasingly
sophisticated technology offerings here. One of the ways molding companies are containing costs and maintaining
quality in their products is by cutting back on the amount of work that
is outsourced overseas.
Containing costs by cutting back on outsourcing. What a concept!
