Mitchell Metal Products of Merrill, WI was recently recognized with the first National Reshoring Award in recognition of the company’s ability to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. The award, given by The Reshoring Initiative and the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), honors companies that have reshored products, parts, or tooling.

The Wisconsin-based manufacturer was selected after using reshoring to complete more end products with less lead time. In 2016, the company manufactured more than 30,000 key mechanical subassemblies in Wisconsin. This volume was an increase from the 4,500 previously made overseas.

According to Tim Zimmerman, president of Mitchell Metal Products, the company utilized The Reshoring Initiative’s total cost of ownership strategy to win a collection of contracts that brought work back to their Wisconsin factory. This strategy urges manufacturers to look at outsourcing decisions from more than just a cost perspective, which, according to The Reshoring Initiative, can misrepresent savings by as much as 30 percent.
