What it Means to be a Domestic Industrial Manufacturer

August 10, 2022

Domestic Industrial Manufacturer

Being an industrial manufacturer is a proud badge to wear. From widgets to components, manufacturing is the backbone of any society. In fact, not making products domestically can cripple your supply chain. When this happens, it leads to shortages at the consumer level. Having a healthy, domestic manufacturing base can strengthen your local logistics network. Let’s look at some of the advantages of having domestic manufacturing.

Faster Shipping

Having a robust network of companies that produce goods where you live is important. This is a key ecosystem – without it, you would continually have to rely on products from overseas. The more reliant on overseas products you are, the more your supply chain suffers.

Supporting A Domestic Workforce

A domestic workforce can be a powerful thing. Let’s look at the metals industry. According to the Metal Service Center Institute, “The metals manufacturing industry plays an important role in the global economy”. Here are some jaw-dropping stats from their Metal Matters outreach:

  • In the U.S., the metals industry sustains approx. 2.2 million jobs! These are good jobs you can raise a family on
  • $621 Billion dollars in the metals market goes toward the gross domestic product
  • Every year, over $60 billion is paid to local, state, and federal taxes

Having a domestic workforce that contributes to the improvements in manufacturing matters. Not only to the economy but to our neighbors and friends. In fact, every job in the metal industry creates 7 supporting jobs in the economy. From architects to truck drivers, having a domestic manufacturing workforce matters to the bottom line.

Reshoring

Reshoring is the process of bringing domestic production of goods back from overseas. Companies across industries are doing it in droves. With supply chain issues, organizations are realizing that the minimal added cost of working with a domestic manufacturer no longer outweighs the bottlenecks that occur when you buy from overseas. Having products readily available contributes to a company's bottom line. This is especially true when others don’t have it or face delays at the port. Plus, with regulations in place domestically, the products being produced are created to exact standards that are often, much better for the environment. And as we mentioned above, the more that is re-shored, the more our economy benefits.
