Enter to Win 2020 Metalworking Reshoring Award
Four manufacturing associations have announced the 3rd National Metalworking Reshoring Award. Companies that have successfully reshored products, parts or tooling made primarily by metal forming, fabricating, casting or machining, including additive manufacturing, are invited to apply. The Reshoring Initiative, the Precision Metalforming Association, National Tooling and Manufacturing Association, and AMT – The Association for Manufacturing Technology are sponsoring this competition.
To be eligible for the award, the work must have been reshored between January 1, 2013, and May 31, 2020, from outside North America to North America. Reshoring includes work that is produced either in-house or outsourced. A complete definition of reshoring is available here. Applications must be submitted by June 30, 2020.

“In 2018 over 1,300 companies announced they were shifting jobs to the U.S. from offshore, up 38% from 2017. Jobs reshored since 2010 account for 3.3% of total U.S. manufacturing employment,” says Harry Moser, founder and president of the Reshoring Initiative. “There is still time for companies to decide to reshore and be eligible for the award. We also hope that other associations will choose to support similar awards to show that their industries are also now successfully reshoring.”
The award will be presented to the winner at IMTS 2020.
