Across industries, US companies and their customers, are coming to terms with the one-two punch of China trade tariffs and the months-long shutdown due to COVID-19. The perceived (real?) dependence on a single country to produce for the world is driving more and more organizations to seek alternatives sources of supply for direct materials and third-party manufacturing partners.
