Extron Featured on Cover of Manufacturing Today

Article highlights powerful advantages of Extron’s pioneering “Last Mile Manufacturing” onshoring approach.

  • MILPITAS, CA – (August 29, 2016) –

    Extron, Inc., (www.ExtronInc.com) announced today that it will be featured on the cover of the September/October issue of Manufacturing Today, one of the manufacturing industry’s leading publications.  The magazine will highlight how Extron’s Last Mile Manufacturing capabilities are changing the conversation around domestic manufacturing. 

    Extron’s CEO, Sandeep Duggal, stated “We’re thrilled to be included in this well-respected publication.  The article definitely helps us get the word out on our new approach to onshoring manufacturing from overseas, and to share the incredible benefit that we can have on a manufacturer’s speed, flexibility, and IP security, all while reducing cost.” 

    The Manufacturing Today article (also available here) highlights how Last Mile Manufacturing (LMM), Extron’s unique approach to domestic manufacturing, can help customers keep more of their supply chain in the United States, while still taking advantages of global sourcing.  The story describes how Extron clients are benefitting from faster and more flexible response to dynamic customer demand, as well as reduced inventory and transportation costs.  Extron’s LMM approach also results in improved protection of valuable intellectual property (IP) which becomes less exposed to theft from overseas factories.

    “There is an outdated belief that making anything overseas is cheaper,” said Duggal, “so we love it when we have the opportunity to demonstrate how the economics change when you use Extron’s LMM approach.  More and more customers are inquiring about this approach.

    “We offer a full range of operations services for our Last Mile Manufacturing clients, from integration, configuration, and assembly, to fulfillment, returns management, and even demo-eval solutions” said Duggal.  “That way, we can take a 360-degree look at our clients’ operational needs and design the ideal supply chain solutions for their needs.”
