The Reshoring Institute
Before a manufacturer labels a product “Made in USA,” it is important to be sure the product meets federal and state regulations for labeling. Unfortunately, the regulations can be vague, complicated, and subject to interpretation. We assist companies with Made in USA labeling requirements at the federal state level and with your reshoring projects.

About The Reshoring Institute
We provide information, research and support for companies trying to “Reshore” or bring manufacturing and services back to America. This may include things like site selection, tax incentives, science and math education, marketing and PR and cost comparison development. We direct this Reshoring work and include student interns in support of research projects and consulting projects.
Developing Talent for Global Manufacturing Management
Our manufacturing and policy related research projects are assigned at the beginning of each semester or are designated by sponsoring companies. Students are paid for their time and effort and benefit from the professional expertise and mentoring by our industry leading board of directors. Project sponsors receive top caliber industry research and often, the beginnings of a working relationship with a forthcoming college graduate.
Our Sponsors & Affiliates
Our sponsors are American manufacturers and other services community members interested in bringing back American manufacturing jobs. Sponsors have an opportunity to support this effort at the silver, gold or platinum level. If you are one of the many manufacturing companies in the united states, or simply believe it is time to stop offshoring manufacturing, we encourage you to help us promote production in America once again. For more information on becoming a sponsor, please contact our team at info@ReshoringInstitute.org.
Our manufacturing industry experts and students prepare detailed research designed to help companies reshore their manufacturing back to the United States as well as sourcing locations closer to their consumers. This research may include policy updates, industry reshoring trends, location and site selection, and even nearshoring or offshoring information and statistics. For example, learn more about how Trump and NAFTA are inter-related or get the answer to the questions, “What is Reshoring?” or “Why do foreign companies build plants in Mexico?”
