I'm with Rich.....move everything to Motown and get back to the glory days.  Always chasing the low cost labor pool is not sustainable long term.  Invest now for the future.

@_hm: Of course they are. They are supposed to be good in their job because with an array of electronics, EMS have to be specific and right about the support team they choose for a particular industry. I hope there is a talented support team for aeronautics.

I think what every supply chain entrepreneur should do is incorporate a base design for all of their products. Just like IOT. If they do so then they can cut down considerable costs on making different kind of boards and electronics.

"Regional facilities operating across the border of Mexico offer customers a substantial risk abatement benefit, when comparing total acquisition costs and Asian manufacturing alternatives. Employee turnover in some areas of central Mexico are extremely low, further reducing OEM risks."

How about locating in Detroit? Lots of cheap land there. You'd get a lot of public relations capital that way.

EMS are generally very good, unlike parts distributor. They provide good technical and commerical service and are always reliable and dependable. Yes, if they have higher bandwidth, they will find more business.
