SINKING SPRING, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hofmann Industries Inc announced Tuesday that it has created a team of sales, manufacturing, engineering, and logistics professionals to help customers identify cost advantages of sourcing steel tubing and tubular products in the United States. The company identified success in various industries, and highlighted its success in reshoring tubular product used in household storage items.
The last 20 years has been marked by a massive shift of primary manufacturing of metal components to suppliers in Southeast Asian countries such as China and Vietnam. The changes in the marketplace has forced companies like Hofmann to focus on speed of manufacturing, more efficient lot sizes and improved logistics and support.
Reshoring – or the practice of bringing manufacturing back to the U.S. is of increasing interest to U.S. companies. Whether it is because of consumer preference to purchase a “Made in the USA” product or because long leadtimes and skyrocketing ocean freight costs and fees, the practice of reshoring has taken off in the last several years.

Hofmann’s integrated approach to steel tube manufacturing allows it to control cost and leadtime from raw steel to finished component.
