Business Excellence Profiles Resourcemfg

By: Thomas Cutler

According to manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler in the January issue of Business Excellence, "The automotive industry, there has been an international move to produce vehicles in the United States for the US consumer. Foreign direct investment is increasingly regarded as a source of new jobs, to the extent that foreign manufacturing jobs within the US are growing five times faster than outsourced jobs, according to the Organization for International Investment. KIA, BMW, Hyundai, Nissan, Toyota, and Honda all have manufacturing plants in the United States, which makes distribution easier and more cost effective than shipping their product to the US from abroad. Automotive OEMs have found that certain geographic regions in the US provide them with able and affordable workforces including Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, and Alabama. The supply chain which supports the automotive sector extends nationwide and impacts key industries in the tiered supplier system including machining, sheet metalworking, electronics, plastics and rubber."

Those placement organizations that represent this sector both geographically and with segmentation expertise include ProLogistix and ResourceMFG, specializing, as their names suggest, in the logistics and manufacturing segments, respectively. Similar to the automotive sector there is a complex supply chain serving the aeronautics sector. It is a niche, specialty market ranging from specialty personal jet manufacturers to helicopter and jet engine manufacturers. Due to stringent FAA regulations, assembly will remain in the United States. There are high levels of manufacturing activity in Tucson and Phoenix, AZ, Albuquerque, NM, Dallas and Wichita, TX. "There is great growth in the personal jet manufacturing sector," says Julie Maydew, vice president of
ResourceMFG, who is finding great demand for placing highly trained technicians within the sector.
