Sterling Machinery Exchange reported the following to MDNA:
A customer supposedly named Armando Dedera purchased a new ironworker from them. They also added an attachment. They hired a shipping company to bring it to the address of: SM Technologies Co at 431 N. 47th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85043. At the last minute, the purchaser tried to divert it to the shipping hub for pickup due to "a forklift problem at the original address." Sterling Machinery Exchange then called the company at the original address and that company reported that this had happened to them before and was not legitimate. Sterling Machinery Exchange caught this incident before it was too late, but reported to MDNA that it was minutes away from being stolen and they wanted their fellow MDNA Members to be aware.

Louis Columbus writes: "During a recent conversation with the CEO of one of the leading industrial equipment manufacturers in the Midwest, she told me that her company sees disruption as key to their survival and growth. This CEO successfully has turned around a series of product lines that had flat sales growth, using a combination of cloud platforms, analytics, mobile and rapid prototyping including 3-D printing. She says that by putting the customer at the center of these initiatives unifies them and makes their impact on sales and customer satisfaction immediately measurable."
The loss of American manufacturing jobs to foreign labor has been a central theme of several presidential candidates' campaigns. However, the trend of offshoring may be slowing, according to one organization.
The New York Times
The image of the American factory floor is as classic as Henry Ford's Model T assembly line and just as enduring in the popular imagination. For decades, manufacturing jobs have been the ladder to the middle class for Americans of modest means and education.
So when Made in NYC, a group that promotes local manufacturing, began an advertising campaign this spring, its goal was more than just to draw attention to items produced in the city.
