My children have a set of colorful dishes made from recycled plastic milk jugs. Emblazoned proudly across the bottom of each bowl or plate are the words PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA. Whether a public relations move or a matter of personal passion, this company made the choice to manufacture their products in the United States of America.
How many companies have made the choice to manufacture their products in the U.S.? Over half a million! The U.S. is home to almost 300,000 different manufacturing facilities. The majority of these companies employ 99 or fewer employees. Approximately nine hundred employ 1,000 workers or more. Manufacturing facilities take on many shapes and sizes (and some can grow quite rapidly).
I recently heard of a young entrepreneur who started making soy candles out of the back room of her retail storefront. Within a decade, this small side business took on a life of its own and in the span of just seven years, she had to increase her manufacturing facility’s square footage by 1900% and her employee workforce by 80%
When a manufacturing operation becomes of a certain size, it is naive to imagine that your employee workforce will double as your cleaning crew. It was one thing to ask an employee to sweep a small back room in a store front, but imagine giving those same instructions in a 50,000 square foot warehouse! The notion is laughable.
