Here is a great post from the Wall Street Journal about how states with a solid manufacturing base are seeing job recovery. States like California who seem to have no interest in keeping manufacturing companies in the state are actually seeing jobless rates increase. UPM has seen several good, growing customers move out of state due to the ever rising costs of doing business here.
UPM can help offset may of the logistic costs of doing their manufacturing in Asia. If you take the total landed cost (freight, financing, inventory, tariffs, etc.) of a finished good and compare it to the cost of an injection molded, fully assembled product manufactured by UPM you will see the costs are typically the same or even a savings using domestic manufacturing.
