Reshoring & FDI Resources

Thinking of bringing your manufacturing operation to the U.S., but not sure where to start?

The United States has become a more competitive destination for foreign and domestic companies to invest in manufacturing operations due in part to:

  • Rising labor costs in many developing countries combined with slower wage growth in the U.S.
  • Increasing costs to ship products to North America
  • Increasing importance of speed-to-market for consumer products
  • Growing demand for products “Made in the USA”
  • A heightened focus on risk minimization, including supply chain risk and intellectual property protection

While these and other trends are driving new U.S. market investment, companies that are unfamiliar with the social, economic, geographic, regulatory and political complexities involved with choosing the optimal U.S. location can find themselves very quickly overwhelmed.

Biggins Lacy Shapiro & Co. (BLS & Co.) is devoted to bringing clarity to the business location decision-making process.  Our team of experienced professionals can help you identify, evaluate and select the optimal location for your operation and secure useful and meaningful state and local tax credits and other business incentives.
