There is a resurgence of manufacturing in the United States as the allure of offshore sourcing begins to fade. Several studies released this year by major consulting firms, and articles in a variety of publications have noted the rise in U. S. production. Examples range from Fortune 500 giant Caterpillar Inc. to toy manufacturer Wham-O Inc., which are either expanding operations here, or bringing back production from offshore suppliers. Die casters are seeing a similar trend, with nearly a quarter of NADCA members reporting they gained new business that had previously been sourced offshore.
