Harry Moser is best perhaps the best-known voice in the reshoring movement, the return of manufacturing from overseas markets. Moser, the founder and president of the Reshoring Initiative, shared reshoring insights and strategies with economic development professionals at the 2013 IEDC conference. Quick hits from the Godfather of Reshoring:
