Reshoring is surging nationally. How your company and NW Ohio can benefit. For decades, we lost business and jobs to offshoring. It is now clear that shorter sup-ply chains are lower risk and are more profitable for OEMs for 20 to 30% of products. Six local groups are bringing you this webinar to help NW Ohio OEMs and supply chain companies reshore.

Takeaways include:
• How to identify the products most eligible to reshore
• How to quantify the costs and risks of offshoring
• Why companies reshore
• How to convince companies to reshore and buy from you
• How to participate in the NW Ohio Reshoring Project
