While the industry assumption has always been that it is more cost effective to manufacture and source products offshore, this is not necessarily the case given the current instability in global supply chains. Issues with quality control and rising costs for transportation, delivery and insurance must also be considered as their impact will be passed to the customer. When you consider all the factors required to deliver a successful building project, there are many more benefits from local manufacturing that make it the superior option.
Going Local Amid the Global Supply Chain Crisis: Considerations to Ensure Product Availability for Building Projects takes a close look at the current global supply chain crisis and tackles the question of whether it is better to manufacture building products locally or outsource them from overseas. We look at the impact of COVID-19 on global production and transport, and the current issues with global shipping costs and delays. We then look at why local manufacturing options provide stability and certainty for design and construction professionals, and consider the benefits of working with local manufacturers when designing drainage systems.
