Laksham explained why America is a well-suited for manufacturing, “I came into the manufacturing world from a technology perspective. After visiting over 200 companies worldwide I really found manufacturing left America for the wrong reason. I found companies were leaving the country to reduce the cost of labor. The problem is manufacturing is seen as ‘cost center’ instead of ‘value center’. When manufacturing is seen from a ‘value center’ or from an output perspective, then the savings is in reduction of inventory costs, optimization of inventory, and the reduction of lead times. We have a strong investment banking system in the country with Wall Street. This is why America is well-suited for manufacturing”
