So you have decided to relocate your manufacturing plant. If you are going offshore, make sure that all costs and potential costs are accounted. The lure of lower labor rates is legendary and even lower raw material costs might be attractive. Direct costs are easy enough to compare, but what about indirect costs? Some of these may include delays, quality issues, shipping issues, cost of trips by personnel to oversee operations and cancelled orders due to delays, to name a few. All of this should be in your equation when making that decision. It is not a decision to be made lightly, but with much thought. Good luck!
