Manufacturing

In today’s global marketplace, manufacturers need to constantly innovate to remain profitable. As many manufacturers move towards maintaining strategic and executive oversight in North America while outsourcing their regular processes to foreign affiliates, others have found success by recommitting to vertical integration throughout their organization.
