    INDUSTRY NEWS


    Commander-in-cheap: US is a bargain manufacturer
    CNBC
    Americans may be fond of lamenting the decline of the country's economic clout and the flood of "Made in China" goods but they may soon have to find something else to complain about. According to the Boston Consulting Group, the U.S. is fast becoming one of the lowest-cost countries for manufacturing in the developed world. BCG argues that average production costs in Germany, Japan, France, Italy and the U.K. will be 8 to 18 percent higher than those in the U.S. by 2015.

    Detroit bankruptcy's effect on auto industry boom
    By Ryan Clark
    Detroit, the birthplace of American automotive ingenuity, has filed for bankruptcy. The filing is the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history. The move toward restructuring may not come as a surprise to some, being the culmination of a half-year's worth of financial insecurity. What may come as a surprise, however, is the realization that this all happened while Detroit's big three auto companies did better business — and subsequently pulled out a better profit — than they have in a very long time.

    A 'Monster' look on manufacturing jobs
    Manufacturing.net
    Not too long ago, Monster.com, the well-known online job marketplace, conducted a comprehensive survey on the state of U.S. manufacturing jobs and came to some compelling, if not worrying, results. In general, workers in U.S. manufacturing are largely unhappy with their current positions, for a variety of reasons, and are more likely to be actively searching for different work — be it at another plant or another industry.

    Consumer Goods Technology
    Nearly 1,500 government officials and suppliers convened at the recent Walmart U.S. Manufacturing Summit to advance American renewal in manufacturing and help rebuild opportunities for America's middle class. The summit at the Orlando Convention Center underscored Walmart's commitment to buy an additional $50 billion in U.S.-made products over the next 10 years and featured announcements from suppliers that, combined, are expected to infuse more than $70 million into factory growth and create more than 1,000 domestic jobs.
