In the news: US Manufacturers Bring Jobs Closer to Home

Manufacturers are facing an onslaught of difficult challenges today — but many are finding nearshoring has become the golden solution.

Barbi Reuter, CEO and principal at Cushman & Wakefield affiliate PICOR, serving as 2022 CREW Network global board president, says that bringing jobs back to North America (Mexico), increases predictability and reliability of the supply chain while retaining favorable labor access and costs compared to the US.

The nearshoring trend has only accelerated during the pandemic. According to data from the Thomas Report State of North American Manufacturing 2021 Annual Report, 83% of manufacturers are likely or extremely likely to reshore jobs, up from only 54% in March 2020, before the pandemic was a factor.
