SEAMS Launches Sewn Products Reshoring Award
SEAMS has launched its first ever Sewn Products Reshoring Award.
Any company that has successfully reshored the sewing of any product to the United States and thus accelerated the Made-in-America movement, is eligible to apply.
U.S. reshoring is the practice of transferring offshore business operations or sourcing back to the United States, and includes new or significantly increased production in the United States of product previously imported.
The Made-in-America movement is focused on increasing production in the United States to strengthen the economy and bring jobs back. The SEAMS organization drives this trend with a membership of the leading U.S. brands, manufacturers and retailers in the sewn products industry.
Eligibility for this award must include production reshoring from offshore back to the United States or represent new production that has taken market share from imports between January 1, 2014, and January 31, 2019.
There will be awards for three industry categories: cut-and-sew manufacturers; brands/OEMS/vertical retailers; and textile providers (products produced in the United States). Eligible companies for any sewn products are encouraged to apply. Request for applications must be received by January 21, 2019. Final applications must be submitted by February 21, 2019. Links to award details and initial online application are available on both SEAMS and the Reshoring Initiative websites.
