Fishbowl Inventory Helps U.S. Manufacturers Compete with China


Orem, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/21/2013 -- Manufacturing has been one of the few bright spots of the U.S. economy for the past several years. This is a result, in large part, of manufacturers’ ingenuity in cutting costs and finding more efficient ways to do business. As long as they continue to think creatively, Fishbowl Inventory is committed to helping U.S. manufacturers prevail.

While China, Mexico and other countries have the advantage of cheaper labor, U.S. manufacturers are coming up with creative ways to lower costs and deliver products. China’s advantages of a huge workforce and cheap currency are no match for superior processes. While many foreign manufacturers rely on outdated manufacturing methods and inefficient equipment, U.S. manufacturers are developing new ways to streamline production by building more efficient machines to do work that used to require several older machines according to Fishbowl Inventory.

Customers are looking for the best price and the best value. Some Chinese imports have been plagued by issues of poor quality and even negative health effects. By maintaining high standards for their products, U.S. companies may not always offer the best price, but they are much more likely to earn a reputation for having longer-lasting and more desirable products.
