Japanese Manufacturers Are Looking To Move Operations To U.S.

Manufacturers in Japan are looking to move some of their operations offshore… to the United States.

In a reversal of the offshoring that has plagued the United States manufacturing industry for the last two decades, it seems that in addition to bringing back U.S. jobs, the current low energy costs are getting the attention of other countries.

Although the United States manufacturing industry is continuing to re-establish itself, there are still many hurdles facing companies – namely the skills gap.  U.S. employers are finding that although they have positions to fill, there simply aren’t enough skilled workers to go around which, in turn, hurts their productivity.

The Shipbuilding/Marine Trades and Advanced Manufacturing Institute (SAMI) at New England Institute of Technology is committed to helping Rhode Island residents close the skills gap and turn themselves into sought after employees.
