What do Ford, GE, Whirlpool and Boeing have in common?  They are shifting manufacturing from China and Mexico and are “on-shoring” this production back to the United States.  Yes, it’s true. Many companies are re-thinking their long-held “off-shore” manufacturing strategy.

According to Jim McNerney, CEO of Boeing, “We, lemming-like, over the last 15 years, extended our supply chains a little too far globally in the name of low cost. We lost control, in some cases, over quality and service; when we did that we underestimated the value of our workers back here."

Many large companies are re-discovering what we at Rodon have known for a long time.  With the right people and the right technology, American manufacturers are the smart choice for high-quality, cost-effective production.

Over the past 55 years, Rodon has invested heavily in state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and highly-trained personnel.  We take pride in the level of quality and service we provide right here in America.  From our sophisticated model and tool design to our automated presses, we offer a complete manufacturing solution for high-volume plastic parts and products.

It’s no surprise to us that “Made in America” is the new mantra for our country’s industry leadership.  We are glad to see that GE, Boeing and many others are re-discovering the superior products and components created by American companies and our workforce.
