    INDUSTRY NEWS


    What's Hot in Manufacturing Technology
    The Wall Street Journal
    Additive manufacturing, popularly known as 3D printing, has become the standard bearer of the next industrial revolution. It's clearly different, it's already available to both professionals and hobbyists, and it's sexy in a geeky, "Star Trek" sort of way. An item is made, layer by thin layer, until it appears almost magically from seeming thin air. Remember the replicator aboard the starship Enterprise?

    Cost Convergence with China: An Energizer for US Manufacturing?
    The Brookings Institution
    Is a shrinking cost gap between China and the United States for advanced manufacturing really changing the calculus of location decisions and making possible a "manufacturing renaissance" in the United States? Optimists like Hal Sirkin of the Boston Consulting Group have been predicting a convergence of labor and other costs — and a resulting U.S. manufacturing revival — for several years, while skeptics like Jan Hatzius of Goldman Sachs still don’t see it.

    Strategies: US Companies Are Bringing Back Manufacturing Jobs
    Denver Business Journal
    A notable trend in investment banking involves new private-equity and hedge funds focused solely on financing "reshoring" or "insourcing" — the return of manufacturing jobs from overseas to domestic plants. Manufacturing companies interested in positioning themselves as attractive acquisition candidates should take a hard look at local manufacturing.

    Manufacturers Hide Environmental Success
    Environmental Leader
    Manufacturers and retailers may be holding back on communicating their sustainability successes to customers, new research suggests. More than three-quarters of industry executives from brand manufacturing and retail have concerns about "greenwashing" backlash and half mentioned a lack of consistency in sustainability measurements. These companies are struggling to find the right level of communication with consumers about their sustainability programs, Ryan Partnership said in a whitepaper.

    This Eco-Friendly Sanitizer Is Safe, Sustainable and Effective
    TreeHugger
    Instead of using bleach or other harsh disinfectants to sanitize sports gear, toys, office and health care equipment, or other items that are handled by multiple people everyday, a new sanitizing unit that uses ozone to kill bacteria and viruses can be used instead, saving time and reducing the amount of exposure to harsh chemicals.

    Supply Chain News: Will Manufacturers Shift Focus from Capacity to Capability?
    Supply Chain Digest
    Worldwide, both developed and developing countries are putting renewed emphasis on growing their manufacturing bases, and increasing the percent of GDP that comes from the manufacturing sector. This is in part due to the experience of the recession and beyond, where the financial sector lost much allure for investors and governments, and during which economies such as Germany and the U.S. that had relatively stronger manufacturing sectors took take less of an overall economic hit than those countries that were more service sector focused. Add to that the fact that each manufacturing job usually is connected to six or seven additional jobs that support that manufacturing operation in one way or the other, and it's clear why so many countries have manufacturing growth on the from burner.

    Fox Business
