Is Manufacturing Coming Back to American Shores?

As vaccines roll out and the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact begins to fade, will manufacturing return to the United States? Peter Edlund, Chief Solutions Evangelist at DiCentral, weighed in.

“I do believe so. I think there were a lot of lessons learned during COVID, and many of the manufacturers have seen disruptions in their supply chain.

Obviously, we see it in the automotive industry, where they’re shutting down factories relative to the chip shortages.

Legislation has also been sort of put out there asking for supply chains to be more local, and we’ll start to see more of that legislation that will drive a lot of those decisions.

So, yes, I do think manufacturing is going to change and probably be more reassuring, if you will.”
