Renaissance is the name given to describe a cultural revolution that began in Italy, in around the 14th century. Furniture of the time was simple in outline and featured classic moldings and animal shapes.
According to the Canadian Oxford Dictionary, renaissance can also mean a revival. If that’s the case, then manufacturing in the United States is set to undergo a renaissance. According the Boston Consulting Group, manufacturing in America is set to grow significantly as companies come home to get their manufacturing orders processed.
So when you decide to bring your wood-furniture component manufacturing requirements back to these shores, how will you go about locating a quality manufacturer?
Begin by establishing the code for your products in the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Then you can look for manufacturers in that code.
You can search through literally thousands of manufacturers from the comfort of your office chair, using the Internet. Take the time to check out company websites. Look for websites that are current and being regularly updated. Also ensure the websites are well written and contain information pertinent to your requirements.
Trade shows are a great resource for finding manufacturers in the products you need. Again, you can begin by searching online for trade show websites, and then check out the exhibitor lists you find there.
Despite the Internet’s effect on magazine publishing as a whole, there are still plenty of trade magazines out there—full of stories about manufacturers, as well as company ads and listings.
