The European market is one of the largest markets in the world. In order to build a resilient supply chain your company’s answer to the question whether or not to have (more) decentralized production in Europe, is critical. But if your answer is ‘yes’, how to cope with the high production costs and the limited availability of personnel in Europe?

Topics which will be addressed:

  • What are the current trends in terms of manufacturing footprint development of leading companies in Europe? Is ‘reshoring’ recently taking place?
  • What is the best approach for manufacturing footprint optimization? Which process? Which methodologies? How to analyze scenarios in detail?
  • What impact will technological developments/automation in the production process (Industry 4.0, additive manufacturing) have on your future European Manufacturing Operations?
  • How is the labor market pressure impacting footprint and location decisions?
  • How to select the optimal location for a new manufacturing plant in Europe, Africa and the Middle East?
  • Opportunities and pitfalls of economic incentives when setting up a new plant in Europe?
