Published in thefabricator.comDo you remember when most product labels said “Made in the USA”? For many decades the U.S. dominated manufacturing, both at home and worldwide, but globalization is relentless. Manufacturers are competing against companies outside the U.S. now more than ever and “Made in the USA” isn’t as prevalent as it once was.

Published in thefabricator.comAlthough we’re several weeks into the new year, many of us are still in the process of recovering from 2020—picking ourselves up, dusting ourselves off, and trying to get our bearings before dealing with 2021. A global pandemic, a hard-fought election, a drawn-out postelection phase, and anticipation of a new presidential administration combined to make 2020 one of the most chaotic years in recent history.
