“Maker-to-User” Movement in U.S. Manufacturing Gaining Traction

CHICAGO, Aug. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the newly released report “‘ Farm-to-Table’ Becomes ‘Maker-to-User’: How a Manufacturing Movement is Emerging,” MetalMiner, the top pricing and sourcing intelligence website for metal-buying organizations, explores how the “Maker-to-User” model is gaining traction in the American manufacturing market. Amid tariff tumult comes the argument that local sourcing and production can be the remedy for supply chain headaches.

“The Maker-to-User movement is not new to U.S. manufacturing,” says MetalMiner Founder and CEO Lisa Reisman. “In most instances, potential small cost increases are more than outweighed by improved lead times, flexibility and reliability due to the shorter supply chain.”

Available as a direct download, the report:

  • Draws a parallel between the “Farm-to-Table” agricultural model and the “Maker-to-User” movement in manufacturing
  • Analyzes the financial and general benefits gained from local sourcing
  • Compares local vs. offshore supply chains and their economic repercussions
  • Explores the impact of the Trump Administration’s new tariffs

The report illustrates how especially basic US industries are at risk due to extensive import penetration and examines the question of consumer cost. To access the full report, click here.
