Reducing Pandemic Impact on Supply Chains by Reshoring Heat Treating

The coronavirus pandemic has many manufacturers rethinking their supply chains. After enjoying years of cost-savings from offshore operations and practices such as just-in-time inventory, manufacturers are seeing their previously smooth-running production and transportation operations grind to a halt.

The mounting expense of stalled operations has spurred manufacturers to move quickly to reshore or localize production functions, including heat treatment.

Companies recognize that the risks and strategic impacts associated with offshore manufacturing simply outweigh the shrinking wage advantages found in emerging markets. 
There are no easy fixes. But there are best practices and workarounds you can implement to  successfully reshore your manufacturing to the U.S. — including your heat treatment operations.


In this article, you’ll learn what to expect and how to initiate reshoring your operations. 

You’ll find helpful discussions about:

  • Understanding why manufacturers are shortening their supply chains
  • Recognizing common challenges of reshoring or localizing heat treating operations
  • Filling knowledge gaps created by moving from one heat treatment supplier to another
  • Maximizing the opportunity presented by reshoring heat treatment operations
