KILDEER, IL–The Reshoring Initiative’s founder, Harry Moser, has been named as one of the 2010 inductees intoIndustry Week’s Manufacturing Hall of Fame. Individuals are selected for this honor based upon their overall contribution to American manufacturing.

To help the manufacturers make better sourcing decisions, theReshoring Initiative provides its free Total Cost of Ownership software that helps manufacturers calculate their real offshoring impact, publicity to drive the reshoring trend, and more information helpful to manufacturers interested in keeping production at home.

In 2011 the Initiative will progress from broad communication and dissemination of the concept and tools to regionally focused reshoring events that result in a measured number of jobs actually brought back

With a career spanning four decades in American manufacturing, Mr. Moser spent 22 years as president of Charmilles Technologies Corp., now GF Agie Charmilles, and is now chairman emeritus. He retires from that position at the end of 2010 and will work full time on the Reshoring Initiative.
