Sandeep Duggal to discuss Last Mile Manufacturing on The CEO Show.

  • MILPITAS, CA ― (May 22, 2012) ― Sandeep Duggal, CEO of Extron Inc and Chairman of the Last Mile Manufacturing and Onshoring Initiative, will be a guest on The CEO Show on KLIV-1590 AM on May 22 at 7pm, hosted by Carl Guardino of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group.

    Mr. Duggal is expected to discuss the efforts of the Last Mile Manufacturing (LMM) and Onshoring Initiative, which is a non-profit, manufacturer-centric effort to return jobs to the United States that have been lost to offshoring. LMM’s efforts are centered on promoting and educating business and community leaders to a proven approach called Last Mile Manufacturing, which has significant benefits for manufacturers and the communities in which they exist.

    Mr. Duggal’s appearance on the CEO Show, which regularly features tech-industry heavyweights, is testimony to the power of the Last Mile Manufacturing concept. “Manufacturers who have offshored entire supply chains, and are now implementing Last Mile Manufacturing approach, are seeing reduced costs, improved flexibility, and reduced risk - - not to mention the new jobs they create here in the U.S.,” said Mr. Duggal. “It’s a powerful idea that makes perfect sense for today’s struggling economy and high jobless situation,” continued Mr. Duggal.

    The Show will rebroadcast on May 26, and a podcast will be available on www.LastMileManufacturing.org and on www.ExtronInc.com .
