Kimball Electronics leadership team members offered insight to a feature article in the February 2015 edition of Electronics Sourcing North America. The article:EMS Outlook: Re-shoring Will Help Drive Revenue Growth in 2015, discusses how the return of some low-volume, high-mix manufacturing will contribute to growth for the North American EMS industry in 2015.
Kimball Electronics Vice President of Business Development, Chris Thyen, is featured discussing the advancement of new products in emerging markets. Director of Global Purchasing, Jamey Mann is featured discussing supply chain risk strategies, and Steve Korn, Kimball Electronics Vice President of North American Operations, is featured discussing the trend to re-shoring and regional manufacturing.
From the Article:"The regional manufacturing model is now the norm for the industries that Kimball Electronics supports," said Steve Korn, vice president of North American operations for Kimball Electronics. "The return of some products to North America is good news for the North American EMS industry, but more important is the overall change by some major industries to have regional manufacturing," he said. Re‐shoring has already created growth opportunities for Kimball in Mexico and the US, Korn said.
The three page article is included on pages 30-33 of the February edition of Electronics Sourcing North America which is available now.
