PMA Member Wins First National Reshoring Award

Mitchell Metal Products, Merrill, WI, received the first National Reshoring Award in recognition of its efforts to bring manufacturing back home to the United States from overseas.  The award, given by The Reshoring Initiative and PMA, honors a company that has successfully reshored products, parts or tooling made primarily by metalforming, fabricating or machining. Mitchell Metal Products was selected after using reshoring to produce more end products with less lead time.  In 2016, the company manufactured a cultivator handle subassembly product, increasing production volume from 4,500 made overseas to 30,000 made in Wisconsin. View the press release here for more information.

The Reshoring Initiative, in conjunction with PMA, will continue to honor companies for their astounding work in reshoring at Sourcing Solutions 2018.   There will be one award for buyers and one for suppliers, and the winning companies will receive national recognition.  Click here to complete the 2018 entry form.  Applications must be submitted by September 1, 2018.  More details about next year’s Sourcing Solutions and Reshoring Award will be available in the coming months.
