Book Description

A follow-up to Tim Hutzel's previous book, Keeping Your Business in the USA: Profit Globally While Operating Locally, this book tells the stories of companies that have sent their jobs outside of the USA and the negative effects this had on the quality of their products and services, employees, supply chain providers, and consumers.

Bringing Jobs Back to the USA: Rebuilding America's Manufacturing Through Reshoring reveals the motivation these companies had to offshore their jobs as well as the errors of omission they made by not understanding the true cost of offshoring. Exposing the true cost of offshoring to US organizations and citizens, it supplies concrete suggestions to help government officials and activists prevent offshoring and incentivize reshoring.

The book provides food for thought for businesses currently thinking about sending US jobs to foreign countries. Outlining a roadmap for reshoring using a step-by-step methodology, it provides business leaders with the understanding to make the right decisions regarding reshoring their products back to America.

Review

Hutzel and Lippert bring a precision of presentation that one would expect of master practitioners in manufacturing. ... I encourage you to read this book not only as a primer on reshoring, but also as a point of inception for your engagement in the movement. ... How can you encourage decision makers and influencers to rally for reshoring? In essence, how can you make a difference?

About the Author

Tim Hutzel was born into a blue collar family in a very small town in southwestern Ohio in 1945. His parents were Depression-era folk who survived by watching their pennies and working hard. Tim entered the workforce at age 14 doing odd jobs such as washing pots and pans at a neighborhood restaurant, operating kiddy rides at a small amusement park, delivering papers, and performing light factory work. Three years later, Tim joined the US Army at age 17 as a volunteer and learned the fine art of field artillery; he spent three years in West Germany helping keep the Russians on the east side of the Berlin Wall. Fifty plus years later Tim has accrued experiences that include three university degrees, 21 years employment at GE Aviation, 20 years self-employment helping businesses improve themselves, writing a book on how American companies can survive in the United States, serving as adjunct professor to Miami University’s Schools of Engineering and the Farmer School of Business. And now, Tim has written this book with his good friend, Dave Lippert. Tim’s age says retirement, but his actions prove differently; he continues to be involved with American businesses, helping them improve their operations and profitability.

Dave Lippert grew up in southwestern Ohio in an industrious family that founded a manufacturing business in 1907, making and selling industrial casters, wheels, and carts. Currently, Hamilton Caster is in its fourth generation of family management. Dave spent his summers working in the family business and experiencing the sights, sounds, and smells of the manufacturing floor. He earned his engineering degree at the US Air Force Academy and after serving six years in the Air Force, returned to Hamilton Caster to work under his dad, then the president. In 1995 Dave succeeded his father to become the company’s fifth president, the position he now holds. Dave led his company to adopt the Toyota production system philosophy by creating the Hamilton Caster management system, a spin-off of what is commonly known as a Lean management system. In 1996, Hamilton Caster was awarded first place among Ohio small businesses for team excellence based on early experiences with Lean. Dave is unwaveringly dedicated to his family, church, company, community, and helping American businesses reach their full potential.
