The industrial manufacturing industry is responsible for fabricating products used in large-scale manufacturing processes. Since the advancements of the industrial revolution, industrial manufacturing facilities have made mass manufacturing possible.
New technologies in industrial manufacturing are responsible for producing various products from raw materials, including everything from huge industrial machine tools to simple household items.
Capabilities of the Manufacturing Sector
Converting raw materials into useful machines, tools, and products is a cornerstone of the economy. Without it, no mass-produced object would be readily available to the masses. Supply chains would grind to a halt, many business models would cease to exist, and life as we know it would be impossible.
However, business and production opportunities still abound, thanks to the manufacturing sector. Industrial manufacturing, in particular, often refers to the manufacturing of manufacturing machines. Rather than manufacturing a product to buy in stores, industrial manufacturing deals with creating machines to manufacture the goods.
Manufacturing Industrial Equipment
Industrial equipment supports the manufacturing of goods for sale by a company.
Examples of industrial manufacturing equipment include:
- Personnel equipment
- Factories or plants
Industrial Manufacturing Companies: Offshore vs Nearshore
You may be familiar with the idea of “offshore manufacturing”, where in companies save money by manufacturing goods outside of the country where labor and material costs may be cheaper. Many developed countries are used to importing goods from China, for example.
However, recent supply chain issues, rising shipping costs, and concerns around intellectual property security have left many US companies searching for an alternative. Enter: nearshore manufacturing.
Nearshore manufacturing is when a business expands manufacturing to a nearby country, usually sharing a border with the business’s home country. This allows for better communication through shared language and similar time zones, lower shipping costs, more beneficial trade agreements, and greater security around intellectual property, all while still enjoying a lower manufacturing cost.
