First Annual Sewn Products Reshoring Award Launched by SEAMS & The Reshoring Initiative

ReshoringThis exciting award is open to all companies that have successfully reshored the sewing of any product to the U.S., accelerating the 'Made in America' movement.

U.S. reshoring is the practice of transferring offshore business operations or sourcing back to the U.S. in addition to any new or significantly increased production in the U.S. from importing. The 'Made in America' movement is focused on increasing production in the U.S. to strengthen the economy and bring jobs back to the U.S. The SEAMS organization drives this trend with a membership of the leading U.S. brands, manufacturers, and retailers in the sewn products industry.

Eligibility for this award must include production reshoring from offshore back to the U.S. or represent new production that has taken market share from imports between January 1, 2014, and January 31, 2019. There will be awards for three industry categories: cut and sew manufacturers; brands/OEMS/vertical retailers; and textile providers (products produced in the U.S.).

Relevant companies for any sewn products are encouraged to apply. Request for applications must be received by January 21, 2019. Final applications must be submitted by February 21, 2019. Links to award details and initial online application are available on both SEAMS and the Reshoring Initiative websites.

The Reshoring Initiative, founded in 2010, helps manufacturers realize that local production, in some cases, reduces their total cost of ownership of purchased products and tooling. The Initiative also trains suppliers on how to sell against lower-priced offshore competitors. www.reshorenow.org
