Growing demand for high tech (incl. medical technology) products is driving many companies in the industry to increase manufacturing/sourcing capacity. Pressure on costs, new regulations, geopolitical uncertainties and last but surely not least labor market challenges across the globe do not make this an easy exercise. Consolidate manufacturing to rationalize costs? Where to expand manufacturing capacity? At current locations? At new locations with a more favorable labor and tax climate and high tech talent availability? Or closer to the markets?  

During this webinar BCI Global shares its latest experiences in supporting leading companies in their (European, US, Asian or global) footprint challenges and will give you an update on the latest developments impacting your company’s performance. The webinar will also include practical case studies and examples.

The following specific topics will be covered:

  • What are the current trends in terms of manufacturing footprint development of high tech companies in Europe, the US, China and/or Asia? Consolidation? Deconsolidation? Differentiation per product/market combination?
  • What is the best approach for manufacturing footprint optimization? Which process? Which methodologies? How to analyze scenarios in detail including all relevant drivers?
  • What impact can technological development/automation in the production process have on the future footprint strategy?
  • How to include a Make or Buy analysis in the manufacturing scenario approach?
  • How is the labor market pressure impacting footprint and location decisions of tech companies?
  • How to select the optimal location for a new tech manufacturing plant in Europe, the Americas or APAC?
