SEAMS has launched its first ever Sewn Products Reshoring Award. Eligibility for this award includes production reshoring from offshore back to the United States or represent new production that has taken market share from imports between January 1, 2014, and January 31, 2019. The awards will be given in three industry categories including cut-and-sew manufacturers; brands/OEMS/vertical retailers; and textile providers.
Reshoring is the practice of transferring offshore business operations or sourcing back to the United States, and includes new or significantly increased production in the United States of product previously imported. The Made-in-America movement is focused on increasing production in the United States to strengthen the economy and bring jobs back. The SEAMS organisation drives this trend with a membership of the leading US brands, manufacturers and retailers in the sewn products industry.
