Sacramento Manufacturing Summit

The Revitalization of U.S. Manufacturing

Making the Case for "Made in America"

CLICK HERE to register for this event!

The reasons for revitalizing the U.S. manufacturing sector are compelling, and manufacturing's contribution to our economy cannot be ignored.  Given that the nation's top priority is job creation, it's important to capitalize on manufacturing's multiplier effect that creates jobs throughout the supply chain - for every manufacturing job created, seven additional jobs are created in other sectors.

Speaker Bio

Harry Moser, Founder, Reshoring Initiative
Harry Moser is the Founder of the non-profit Reshoring Initiative and focuses on convincing manufacturers to return to the U.S. His passion has led him to travel the country, work with policymakers and offer manufacturers a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) formula that helps them calculate the real impact of offshoring on their balance sheet. Mr. Moser began his manufacturing career at General Electric as an engineer. He worked at Disamatic Inc., Acme-Cleveland Corp. and then was president and general manager at Roto-Finish.  In 1985, Mr. Moser joined Charmilles Technologies as president and retired from its successor, GF AgieCharmilles, as chairman emeritus on 12/31/10.  GF AgieCharmilles is a supplier of machines, automation solutions and services to the tool and moldmaking industry as well as to manufacturers of precision parts and components.
Throughout his career, Mr. Moser implemented successful management techniques and process improvements.  GF AgieCharmilles became the company to emulate in the machine tool industry. Mr. Moser serves as president of the Swiss Machine Tool Society  and is on the board of the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS), the manufacturing skilled workforce credentialing organization.

Mr. Moser has his B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his M.B.A. from the University of Chicago.
