Utilizing Automation to Keep Made in USA Electronics Assembly Cost Competitive

Most companies outsource manufacturing to lower costs in one form or another. Often there are tradeoffs in achieving that cost savings. For example, moving a project offshore may lower the cost of labor while increasing logistics and inventory cost. This drives a balancing act in terms of assessing advantages and disadvantages of a specific manufacturing location or contract manufacturer. At EDM, an electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider in Lynchburg, VA, we apply engineering expertise to level the U.S. playing field whenever possible. We’ve found that when all costs are considered, an optimized automation strategy keeps labor costs competitive, especially when the cost advantages of improved responsiveness, and lower finished goods inventory in transit and simplified logistics are considered. This whitepaper looks at some of the ways we’ve applied this strategy.
