Locally Sourced Resources Helps Reinvest In US Businesses
North American packaging and fulfillment leader Assemblies Unlimited Inc. cites an ability to locally source raw packaging materials as a key strategy in reinvesting in US businesses while helping its manufacturer client base to reduce costs and increase profitability. Corporate downsizing and threats from cheaper overseas labor and production mean US manufacturing companies are outsourcing various supply chain needs like packaging and fulfillment to remain competitive. Vendors like Assemblies Unlimited provide services offering the means for many struggling manufacturers to stick to core competencies and withstand the threats of a changing global economy.
"For almost 20 years, our company has been providing a cost-effective means for local manufacturers to reach an expanding global client base, " stated Randy Shaw, CEO and spokesperson for Assemblies Unlimited, "but we are driven by the need to keep our providers and materials local and organic. We outsource raw materials to local producers because it provides a means to cycle revenue and job stability back into local economies. Our client base uses our services to strategically focus more on their product development and refining their core competency - we provide a conduit that connects them directly to the consumers with this product, using 100% North American materials and labor for every step of the process. It reduces costs for them as the seller, increases quality for the consumer, and adds value to local infrastructures all along the way."
Shaw believes that a company like Assemblies Unlimited, which has seen close to two decades of steady growth and expansion, fulfills a vital a role in the continued rebuilding of the struggling US economy. "We stick to local providers because they offer our clients the means to use the best materials but it also strengthens the local economies where we operate in North America. Outsourcing is what gives small to mid-size manufacturers in the US a real chance to develop better products than those of our overseas competitors, because the packaging and drop-ship delivery is being handled by other localized experts. It builds a foundation where local resources are being blended in, intentionally becoming intrinsic to every step the process. This is one way we believe a struggling economy truly starts to heal - by making it stronger bit-by-bit from within."
