THE CHALLENGES OF OFFSHORE PRODUCTION
Companies take their business out of country with the goal of saving on production. But problems arise when miscommunication, political instability, or other security risks create longer delivery times, confusion on order and product specifications, or poor technical support. With international costs on the rise and local technological advancements happening here in the U.S., international manufacturing outsourcing is not always the most cost effective solution.
Companies that manufacture in today’s global market must also compete with a larger number of competitors and must consider factors such as global rising costs, market complexity, and other competitive pressures influencing the market.
