Food for Thought Virtual Luncheon Series: What's your global manufacturing strategy? @ Tech Valley Center of Gravity

Join us at the Manufacturing Incubator at Tech Valley Center of Gravity’s next virtual product development luncheon!

Our next topic in this series is Global Manufacturing & Reshoring with Rosemary Coates of the Reshoring Institute.

The time to act is now. That’s what many companies are feeling now that manufacturing risks and vulnerabilities have been exposed by the pandemic. Parts shipments have been delayed from Asia. Freight rates have doubled. Markets have changed and demand has shifted wildly. The economy is uncertain. What do we do now? We will discuss global manufacturing strategies and reshoring of manufacturing and sourcing.

Rosemary Coates is the Founder and Executive Director of the Reshoring Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on expanding U.S. manufacturing. She is also the President of Blue Silk Consulting, a supply-chain management consulting firm.
Ms. Coates has been a management consultant for 25+ years, helping over 80 global supply chain clients worldwide. She is an Amazon.com best-selling author with five Supply Chain Management books, including the Reshoring Guidebook, 42 Rules for Sourcing and Manufacturing in China, and the Legal Blacksmith – How to Avoid and Defend Supply Chain Disputes. She also works as an Expert Witness on legal cases involving global supply chain disputes.

Rosemary serves on the Board of Directors at the University of San Diego Supply Chain Management Institute and teaches Global Supply Chain Strategy at UC Berkeley. She earned an MBA from the University of San Diego and a bachelor’s degree in business logistics from Arizona State University.
