Manufacturing Coalition | April 22, 2020

When Shirish Pareek learned that there was a shortage of PPE products to supply the medical community with what is needed to combat COVID, he did what he has always done; found a solution. Pareek created the Manufacturing Coalition, a group of American business leaders drawn from Young Presidents' Organization (YPO). Why this group? Well YPO has as its members 28,000 CEOs, in 130 countries, who achieved success at an early age and joined together with the goal of improving leadership. Currently, they lead companies and organizations that contribute $9 trillion in annual revenue. These were the minds that Pareek wanted to tap to manufacture and distribute the necessary medical supplies. The coalition is comprised of 200 American YPO leaders, located in 30 states, that pivoted production lines to create products such as N95 masks, disposable gloves, sanitizing gels and liquids, ventilators and ventilator housings, COVID-19 testing kits, aluminum components for blood analysis tools, and more.

Are American Manufacturers Really Exiting China?

China Briefing | April 12, 2019

Keeping the Chinese economy rolling along in healthy numbers is seen as a large battle for China at present. The still-to-be-resolved US-China trade spat has certainly had an impact on American sentiment towards China, and US-China trade is down significantly as a result of both countries imposing tariffs on a raft of each other’s products. This has hurt some China-based US manufacturers, reliant on low tariffs within the US-China trade space to keep their China-made products competitive. There may well be longer term repercussions too, as such manufacturers are opting to transfer all or part of their China-based production to non-affected countries, such as Vietnam. Headlines such as Would The Last Company Manufacturing In China Please Turn Off The Lights may apply to a small number of tight-margin US investors in China. However, the frightening headline is really designed more to attract views rather than offer an in-depth analysis. These are attention-grabbing statements, but are they real?
