We are bringing technology manufacturing jobs back to the US. Through advanced automation and innovation, we will directly compete with Asia and Mexico on price and beat them in business and operational execution.
Electronic Manufacturing Services is a $419B industry on its way to $560B by 2019. Cisco, Amazon, Apple, Hewlett Packard, and thousands of lesser known technology companies, contract with EMS providers abroad to build their products. ONSHORE ems is a disruptor and a complete rethinking of the future of EMS, a SMART FACTORY OF THE FUTURE. It is a clean sheet of paper design, optimized for a specific profile of products which will benefit most from a highly automated low touch environment. While this operational environment is in itself revolutionary, it is not enough by itself to maintain a sustainable and increasing edge over potential adversaries. We carry this rethinking throughout the entire company as a third order of fit strategy. Administration and customer support, sales and marketing, and relationships both internal and external, every component and function are engineered to create an entirely new and learning eco system, reminiscent of Southwest Airlines in its earlier years.
Only 16% of the Global $419B is manufactured in the US. Since the mass exodus to China in 2002, when the Chinese labor costs were $.30 per hour, the industry has grown by $200B. Now with Chinese labor costs rising to 40% of those in the US, and increasing 18% per year according to the Boston Consulting Group, and instability in their labor force, customers are rethinking their offshore manufacturing strategy. This coupled with dramatic improvements in advanced automation and information technology has created a tipping point in technology we can leverage to bring volume technology manufacturing back to the US.
